2014 Formula Drift Round 4 at Wall Speedway [RESULTS]

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

An Adventure out to HyperFest for US Drift Round 1

HyperFest

So after spending the week in Southern Florida for Formula Drift Round 3 I managed to spend just a few days at home back in Los Angeles before hopping on a flight to Washington DC. The last time I ventured out to Summit Point wasn’t what I would call a fun experience. I had trekked out in my G35 from Atlanta to watch Formula Drift use the Shenandoah Circuit for a course. Hyperfest opted to use that same track for a parking lot!

Hyperfest.JudgingTower

For qualifying I got invited up into the judges tower built at one end of Main Course. The track is technical, very very fast, and pretty much anywhere around the track you have an amazing view. Here is David Bellomo taking his 1JZ powered 240sx around the course in car where he qualified 9th so you can get a feel for this track.

Formula Drift Round 3 Press Conference [VIDEO]

Here is a recap of the press conference which happened right after Formula Drift Miami. The guests for the press conference were Chris Forsberg, Vaughn Gittin Jr., and Kenneth Moen. The audio in the room was a tad odd and we didn’t have a plug in to the localized system but check out what the drivers had to say after coming off the podium.

2014 Formula Drift Round 3 at Miami Homestead [RESULTS]

VaughnGittinJr

What an insane event at Miami Homestead today! Matt Field gave the tandem follow battle of the year but it wasn’t enough to get the win!  Chris Forsberg had oil pressure issues in the final which put him down on power and he couldn’t keep up with Vaughn. So here is how they finished, top three qualifiers are top three finishers:

1. Vaughn Gittin Jr.
2. Chris Forsberg
3. Kenneth Moen
4. Matt Field

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
4. Conrad Grunewald- 86
5. Forrest Wang- 85
6. Tyler McQuarrie- 85
