Formula Drift wrapped up their inaugural event in Japan with some familiar faces on the podium. Long time D1GP competitor Masao Suenaga piloted his RE-Amemiya Mazda RX7 to the event win, beating out fellow Japanese local Masashi Yokoi’s D-Max Silvia S15 in the final. Formula D US competitor Fredric Aasbo took the final spot on the podium in the NASCAR-powered RS*R FT-86, earning the final podium spot over Emmanual Amandio due to his better qualifying position (Aasbo qualified in Q18 vs Amandio’s Q20).
