JamesEvans

The Pro 2 competition was somewhat of a struggle to the finish line but we did see some good battles in the middle. The first four runs went battle, red flag, competition timeout, and crash. In the end Andy Gray looked to be the most promising driver of the day until his power steering crapped out causing him to spin early. Here is how they podium finished along with James Evans going back to back here in Seattle in his Sikky Manufacturing Nissan 350z –

1. James Evans – Sikky 350z
2. Alex Heilbrunn – BMW
3. Faruk Kugay – WiseFab S14

2015 Formula Drift Japan at Fuji Speedway [RESULTS]

FormulaDriftJapan

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

2015 Irish Drift Championship Round 3 – Mondello [RESULTS]

IDC-Round3-GlobalWarfare

How strong are the Irish drivers? Not only was their 11-year unbeaten streak on home soil continued, but the top two drivers aren’t even old enough to earn their drivers license here in the US! 15-year-old Tomas Kiely defeated 15-year-old Jack Shanahan in the all-Irish final, with fellow countryman Dean Kearney taking third place over his Achilles Tire teammate Daigo Saito. For those wondering, Ryan Tuerck was taken out in top 32, and Robbie Nishida was unable to qualify after his initial car was totaled in practice and he jumped into a borrowed ProAm car just moments before qualifying started.

Results:
1st – Tomas Kiely
2nd – Jack Shanahan
3rd – Dean Kearney
4th – Daigo Saito

2015 Formula Drift Round 4 in New Jersey [RESULTS]

FredricAasbo

Wow, so Fredric Aasbo survived weather on all fronts to capitalize on another weekend and win the New Jersey Wall Speedway round of Formula Drift back to back. This gives Aasbo two wins on the season and slots him back into a championship chase in a big way. Forsberg spun twice in two runs which I don’t think I have seen in 11 years of watching Formula Drift. The rain came at the end and the European based drivers thrived with Ryan Tuerck sneaking onto the podium for a second time in a row finishing 3rd. Here is how they finished, Top 10 things coming on Monday-

1. Fredric Aasbo
2. Dean Kearney
3. Ryan Tuerck
4. Masashi Yokoi
