Congratulations to Dan Savage for winning the inaugural Formula D Pro 2 championship! While we posted about how the qualifying points don’t matter in Pro 1, Savage solely won the Pro 2 championship based on his qualifying scores, particularly his top qualifier position on Thursday. Both Stoneback and Savage tied with exactly 260 tandem points, and the extra 5.5 points that Savage earned on Thursday via qualifying are what put him over the edge. Had Savage qualified anywhere from 4th through 8th position, he would have earned exactly 4.5 points in qualifying alongside Stoneback and the championship would have been tied. Hopefully Formula Drift changes the points structure in future seasons to avoid this sort of scenario.
Alongside Savage, a huge congratulations goes out to all 8 drivers who have earned or retained their Pro 1 license through the new ‘Promotion’ system:
Drivers who earned at least 64 points will be allowed to continue in Pro 2 (unless they remain in the top 32 in Pro 1, in which case they can keep their Pro 1 license). This list includes:
All other drivers will be relegated to ProAm.
