Formula Drift Asia is set for a big return to Thailand at the Pathum Thani Speedway over the January 18/19th weekend. They have a big partner teamed up for 2014 with Grand Prix International Co., Ltd (GPI), which owns the Bangkok International Motor Show, several motorsport events, a host of magazines such as Grand Prix and XO Autosport, as well as television channel Grand Prix Channel.
This event will mark the end of the 2013 season and the start of the 2014 season which we are guessing will happen in the form of a back to back race event weekend. This Thailand event is happening at the expense of losing the Indonesia round which was slated for December 2013. Thailand is slated to have Daigo Saito, Fredric Aasbo, Robbie Nishida, Ken Gushi, Josh Boettcher, and Tengku Djan all in attendance.
Marcus Lim, Co-Founder of Formula Drift Asia, “We are excited to return to the Thailand market, after three years of absence, and we look forward to coming back to Indonesia in the near future. 2013 also marks the end of a fruitful chapter with Achilles as the title sponsor of the Asia series. We look forward to welcoming new partners to the fold as we move on to a combined platform globally. The integration of operations with the US side will give us better strategic alignment for the development of the sport in Asia. ”
