2015 Formula Drift Japan at Fuji Speedway [RESULTS]


This was probably the most disappointing start to the Formula Drift “World Championship” anyone could of anticipated. The driving was subpar to most Pro Am series now in America. The final battle didn’t even happen with Odi Bakchis suffering from a technical failure. My one highlight of the weekend was the Suenaga vs. Kawabata battle which I clipped to our Instagram page. Here are the podium results-

1 – Masato Kawabata
2 – Odi Bakchis
3 – Tadahiro Fukada

MattField MattField2.FormulaDriftJapan

Matt Field went to Daigo Saito’s automotive museum (or personal garage) and picked out this car to rent for the FD Japan weekend. Charles Ng will be in the Team Orange Evo X and the rest of the field is pretty limited with Formula Drift USA drivers. The performance of the few USA drivers this weekend will really help us determine who is going to make a run for the first Formula Drift World Championship trophy.
