Matt Powers Wins 2012 NZ Drift Shifters [RESULTS]

Matt Powers managed to qualify first with a score of 1.8 million and just never really looked back this weekend in Auckland. Matt drove straight through a sensor and even hit the Achilles Rig at one point pushing his S14 to the limits. The stunt driver and former Formula Drift champion Sam Hubinette was the only one who could pace Matt Powers and give him a run into the finals. Mad Mike and Daniel ‘Fanga Dan’ Woolhouse were able to round out the final four of the event.
