Here is how the event finished up:

2014 Formula D Round 6 Texas – Tire Manufacturer Championship [STANDINGS]

Forsberg-Hankook-Seattle

Hankook Tire is your 2014 Tire Manufacturer championship winner, repeating their 2013 Championship!

With the only two competitors statistically left in the championship being on Hankook Tire, it makes sense that they are atop the Tire Manufacturer standings. With a 214 point lead over Nitto Tire, and only 197.5 points available for qualifying 1/2 and finishing 1/2, there’s no way for Nitto Tire to take over the lead even if every Hankook Tire driver fails to qualify at Irwindale. Aasbo’s win combined with Forrest Wang’s 3rd place finish in Texas gave Hankook Tire an additional 178.5 points, and they are well on pace to break 1,055.5 points they earned last season (although the championship points structure has changed substantially). Nitto Tire still sits in second place, with Achilles Tire still holding onto third place.

Here’s the standings after 6 of 7 events in the Formula D Championship:

1. Hankook Tire – 962.5 Points
2. Nitto Tire – 748.5 Points
3. Achilles Tire – 647 Points
4. Falken Tire – 592.5 Points
5. Maxxis Tire – 347 Points
6. Yokohama Tire – 255 Points
7. Kenda Tire – 154.5 Points
8. GT Radial – 141.5 Points

2014 Formula Drift Round 6 – Texas Motorspeedway [RESULTS]

Aasbo-Seattle-FD

Formula D Texas had many confusing interesting judging calls, the finals came down to Fredric Aasbo in his Hankook Tire Scion tC and Odi Bakchis in the Feal Suspension Nitto S14. Aasbo edged out Bakchis for the win. Forrest Wang earns third place due to qualifying 1st overall, while Chris Forsberg is stuck in 4th place, breaking his amazing streak of podium finishes (the longest streak in FD history) due to the removal of the 3rd place tandem battle. For both Wang and Bakchis, this is their second career podium, while this is Aasbo’s 2nd career win and 7th career Formula D podium.

EDIT – If you missed the top 4, you can watch the replay on DailyMotion

Here’s the final results:

1st – Fredric Aasbo – Hankook Tire Scion tC
2nd – Odi Bakchis – Feal Suspension Nitto S14
3rd – Forrest Wang – Get Nuts Labs Hankook S14
4th – Chris Forsberg – Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z
