Yesterday we announced Patrick Mordaunt would be swapped cars in Texas at the IRL demo. Sadly during the testing today Patrick Mordaunt suffered gearbox issues with his S14. His Nissan 350z (pictured above) had engine troubles at Road Atlanta and then blew up at PBIR this past weekend. Patrick Mordaunt took to his twitter account and announced that he will be sitting out Round 4 at Wall Speedway due to all these car issues. Such a tough break for a privateer like Patrick this season but we are sure he will return for the final west leg of the Formula Drift series this year.
