Fredric Aasbo Returns to FD Asia for Round 2 in Malaysia

Fredric Aasbo made a big splash with the debut of this NASCAR powered Toyota FT-86 (Scion FR-S in American terms) at the Australia round of Formula Drift Asia earlier this year. The rumor was he would rotate the seat with Max Orido but he announced earlier this week he is hopping in the car for Round 2. Can Fredric Aasbo be the one this weekend to finally dethrone Daigo Saito of his domination in the FD Asia series? Tune in this weekend to find out.
