FredricAasbo.Drifting

This award is given to the driver with the most head to head tandem victories over a season. Fredric Aasbo took home the most in 2014 winning 25 of his 30 matches across 2014. It must be a bitter sweet victory to think you won more tandem battles than the champion but fell just short even after beating him so many times in one season.

With the event win from Aasbo and a top 8 finish from Tuerck, Scion has increased their lead going into the final round of competition. For the second consecutive event, Ford dropped in the standings, this time falling from second to third behind Nissan due to the top 8 finish from Gittin Jr. and top 16 exit from Justin Pawlak. Nissan improved their position behind a team effort from Chris Forsberg Racing, placing one car in the final four (Forsberg) and Castro placing the other car in the top 8, where he narrowly lost to Forsberg.

Here’s how the OEM championship shapes up after 6 of 7 rounds of competition.

1. Scion  – 720 points
2. Nissan – 626 points

Ryan Tuerck Signs with Disc Brakes Australia

RyanTuerckRyan Tuerck has a new Formula Drift sponsor for his Scion FR-S that was brought on right before Seattle. The company is Disc Brakes Australia and Tuerck has opted to run the 4000 series one-piece rotors. The T3 slotted brake rotor is the most aggressive one piece rotor which is optimal for motorsports applications. Good news for you street car fans is the rotor also cuts the mustard on the street. The rotors are crafted with high-carbon iron and cured with a patented process that reduces metal stress, rotor edges feature 3 paint marks which change color to reflect different levels of metal temperature, and DBA’s patented Kangaroo Paw ventilation comprised of 144 pillars between the rotor faces providing faster cooling and greater strength.

Formula Drift Paddock Lost A Great One This Weekend – Chris Harrington

ChrisHarrington

While only about 50 drivers remain in the spotlight on any given weekend you will find hundreds of regulars behind the scenes making the event work and function. Chris Harrington passed away today who was a photographer and part of the Scion family for as long as I can remember.

I didn’t have quite as personal of a relationship with Chris as many others on the grid but we both shared a love for Formula 1 and he was quite a trackside cook. I even was lucky enough to meet his daughter Bianca when she came to the track who he managed to reunite with via social media. Chris was quite young and its a shame to know he wont’ be on site with everyone at Streets of Long Beach. Here is what some others had to say:

Vision Performance Scion FR-S Shows Big Angle

VisionPerformanceFRS

A follower on Twitter (@michaeldrisk412) pointed out to us the big angle that Ron Ewerth has put into his Scion FR-S as well after we published the Kyle Mohan image. The 2JZ powered Scion looks like it is also coming together for the 2014 season. After Michael Essa won a championship with a WiseFab kit in 2013 it seems more and more drivers want to put a focus on big angle. We even have an upcoming interview with Odi Bakchis where we dive into the dark arts of drift suspension.
