Mad Mike Whiddett brought out some top drifters from around the world to Auckland, New Zealand last week. Here is a quick five minute recap showing the elimination of former champion Matt Powers and the race to a final with Chris Forsberg and Mad Mike Whiddeett in drift pinball.
The event fired up at local time 4:30pm here in California and seemingly ran smoother than any drift event I have seen. The event packed a star studded cast into the heart of Auckland, New Zealand for a Great 8 that was aired on Redbull TV. The format saw every driver make a pass and the bottom four scores were eliminated from competition. Then out of the Final Four, the top two drivers moved into a final which saw another.
The GoPro TV commercial scientist team has released a 30 second video with Chris Forsberg and Tyler McQuarrie in tandem. The clip is a little throwback it appears from when Formula Drift ran at PBIR. Keep an eye out for this GoPro clip on television in a home near you.

Due to a rule change in Formula Drift this season the series no longer has a battle for third place to determine the last spot on the podium. In fact, third and fourth place now both get 64 points for the weekend and one driver is guaranteed a podium once he wins his Great 8 battle. Here are the seven battles you missed this year due to the rule change:
Long Beach- Justin Pawlak vs. Michael Essa
Atlanta- Chris Forsberg vs. Robbie Nishida
Miami- Kenneth Moen vs. Matt Field
New Jersey- Odi Bakchis vs. Charles Ng
Seattle- Chris Forsberg vs. Fredric Aasbo
Texas- Chris Forsberg vs. Forrest Wang
Irwindale- Chris Forsberg vs. Forrest Wang
