Formula Drift Japan Round 3 not only counts as the third round of the Formula Drift series but also counts as the eighth round of the Formula Drift World Championship competition. Chris Forsberg, Andy Gray, and “Mad” Mike Whiddett were the only drivers from the Formula D USA series to drive at this event. Andy Gray would have the most success at the event, winning the round by defeating Kazuki Hayashi in the final round. Forsberg and Whiddett would both lose in the top 16, with Forsberg losing to Hayashi and Whiddett losing to Ikuo Saito.

Here’s how the final results played out at Okayama:

1st – Andy Gray
2nd – Kazuki Hayashi
3rd – Masaki Kasahara
4th – Masashi Yokoi

According to our calculations, here is how the Formula D World Championship standings sit after 8 of 10 rounds. In order to be eligible for the World Championships, drivers must have participated in one of the two rounds in Japan:

1st – Chris Forsberg – 454 Points
