Josh Robinson is coming to Formula DRIFT


It looks like Formula DRIFT will have its first ever Australian driver this season with Josh Robinson. Robinson officially announced the news by posting up his confirmation letter from Formula DRIFT on his Facebook page today. For those of you who might not be familiar with Robinson, he has been drifting in Japan and Australia the last few years, and most recently came in second place overall in the 2016 G1 Grand Prix Series.

The next question will be whether or not he is allowed to compete in his 1000-hp Holden Ute. Currently according to the 2017 rulebook, pickup trucks are not allowed (see B & D). However if you reference the next line (E), there is still hope we might get to see it in action this season.

B. Eligible body styles include: coupe, sedan, convertible or wagon and have no more than 5 doors.
