Formula Drift Japan Takes on Fuji Speedway July 4th [RUMORMILL]

MSCdrift

During the broadcast of Formula Drift Thailand the announcer Jarod DeAnda first mentioned a Formula Drift Japan event at Fuji Speedway which was a huge shock to everyone in our office! He then mentioned it again about 5 minutes later saying the Formula Drift Japan event at Fuji Speedway in collaboration with MSC will take place over the Independence Day weekend here in America (July 4th). Haven’t seen any news or posting of this event anywhere else but Jarod has been announcing drift events for 10+ years now and we can imagine he is a reliable source for this information. More updates if they become available. This Fuji Speedway event will seemingly be the one in collaboration with the Formula Drift Asia series for the 2014 calendar championship.

    2 weeks after D1 suzuka… driftcation anyone?

    I hope they use the same part of the track that D1 uses… none of that “let’s use the slowest part of the track because its more technical” BS. This is huge news….

    @Blaze1 lol u got the point. just looking forward to see how traditional fd driver get use to run this one of the highest entry speed track in japan, hopefully they can do more that 110mph

    Agreed Blaze1. The further announcement is that the event will be Round 2 of FD Asia’s 2014 season.

    I wish FD’s PR machine was consistent and reliable.

    Working with MSC means it would likely be run on the same course that they use, which is the D1 course just backwards.
