Pat Cyr took to social media to announce that he would be sitting out the Formula Drift Canada season to pursue rally racing. Cyr joins a growing list of drivers who are pursuing other motorsports this season instead of drifting.
My team and I have been competing for 10 years now in pro drifting all across North America and I just feel like I need a change this season. So to change things up, we will be building a @toyotacanada 86 for Production 2wd rally! I’ve been wanting to try rally car driving for many years now, so this year we will make it happen!
Cyr was the 2015 Formula Drift Canada champion, and has been runner up in the Drift Mania championship series on three different occasions. Cyr has long been associated with the Toyota and Scion brands, competing initially in an AE86 before moving into an FR-S back in 2013.
