Justin Pawlak was spotted testing his Ford Mustang in a parking lot this week. The car is sporting HRE C106 competition wheels and retains many of his 2012 sponsors including Mobil 1, HPI, Ford Racing, and Wilwood. His program does lack the technical support of ASD since they split ways during the off-season with Falken Tire and are running the Vaughn Gittin Jr. x Nitto Tire racing program. The split also probably explains why Justin is no longer running the RTR kit and has swapped over to 3D Carbon for the new year. It will be interesting to see if Justin can overcome all these changes and maintain a championship run?
We also found this video shot by the Formula Drift TV staff showing Justin Pawlak doing some test runs and what looks to be them testing some new GoPro technology. They have some pretty wild roof camera rig setup that seems pretty smooth in this video. It looks like GoPro will be pushing the limits of how we watch Formula Drift this year! What do you think?
