We reported on this breaking story back in January that Patrick would no longer be with APEX’i in the Lexus SC430 for the 2014 Formula Drift season. Our new rumor mill has told us that Patrick Mordaunt has worked out a deal to drive a Hyundai Genesis coupe next year possibly with the ARK team. Dennis Mertzanis in his Wrecked Weekly interview with us told Wrecked that he is building a new Hyundai Genesis chassis for next season.
So theoretically this leaves 2 Genesis coupes for the 2014 Formula Drift season for ARK/Kenda to campaign. Can this team grow into two teams for the new year and get bigger benefits with two Genesis coupes on the grid for 2014? Only time will tell if this rumor is true but we have heard a good buzz from several sources on this one that it is at least in the works.
