SciontC.FredricAasbo.2014

So a big weekend in Formula Drift history with the series 20th ever unique winner! To make matters even more interesting Odi Bakchis became the 35th driver to ever podium in the sport after finishing in fourth twice. In my opinion this was the best Formula Drift event in history as far as entertainment and exciting tandem battles. More on the details of the event in my Top 10 Things post coming soon. Here is how the podium finished:

1. Fredric Aasbo
2. Chris Forsberg
3. Odi Bakchis
4. Charles Ng

2014 Formula Drift Round 3 at Miami Homestead Qualifying [RESULTS]

ChrisForsberg

Chris Forsberg won top qualifying circumstances in such odd conditions due to tiebreakers. The reason he won top qualifier today was due to him being first in the championship. Dai Yoshihara never turned a wheel in qualifying due to mechanical issues just like Round 2 in Road Atlanta. The other big name who failed to make Top 32 was Daigo Saito who continues to struggle through the 2014 season. Here is how the Top 32 finished:

1. Chris Forsberg- 89
2. Vaughn Gittin Jr.- 89
3. Kenneth Moen- 86
