2014 Formula Drift Round 3 at Miami Homestead Qualifying [RESULTS]


Chris Forsberg won top qualifying circumstances in such odd conditions due to tiebreakers. The reason he won top qualifier today was due to him being first in the championship. Dai Yoshihara never turned a wheel in qualifying due to mechanical issues just like Round 2 in Road Atlanta. The other big name who failed to make Top 32 was Daigo Saito who continues to struggle through the 2014 season. Here is how the Top 32 finished:

    To be honest I think Taka kinda got screwed with his score. :/ I mean I like Matts Baribeau but how his second run score was better than Taka’s I dunno. I just feel Taka’s score could/should have been higher than what it was. Same for Joon Maeng.

    Massive sponsorship, huge dollar build and Dai Yoshihara hasnt qualified in 2 out of 3 rounds this season?…

    Thats embarrassing….

  3. haterdan says:

    in before danny george cries about how unfair the judging is when VGJR walks all over him.

  4. tie fighter says:


    Dai qualified in LB and Atl, but he wasnt able to run in the top 32 in atlanta

  5. Flow says:

    Am I the only one who thinks this course layout is stupid? Drag race up to the first corner, then long straightaway that half the field can’t even link (meaning more drag racing and lame tandem) and by the time they get to the chicane, there’s often a big gap pulled.

  6. fbdrifter says:

    Stoneback is on fire

  7. Blaze1 says:

    So did Daigo Saito blow up his car or something lol.? Heard homeboy is fishing instead of driving today.

  8. chewy says:

    Fan view horrible. Track was bad. Judging was worse. What’s new? I mean even forsburg can stall in drift using e-brake before the last turn against Matt to make him come out of the smoke and run into him. Been here all weekend. Forsburg never used e-brake into the last turn. It was obvious. But hey fd is about that cash flow. Making money on this stacked final.
