Round 1 of the British Drift Championship took place at the Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby with a custom track on their outer paddock.
For the first time, Formula DRIFT takes its Championship abroad to the Great White North. The SR by Toyota team sends another driver to the podium and all three drivers continue to make their push up the Championship ladder. Watch Fredric Aasbo, Ken Gushi and Ryan Tuerck as they battle at the Autodrome St-Eustache in Montreal.
Formula DRIFT 2016 Long Beach brought new challenges. Tough weather conditions aren’t what make competition more difficult, it’s the inconsistencies in weather patterns that have the most affect—just ask Fredric Aasbo, “I’d much rather it rain all the way and not stop; inconsistencies can really mess things up.” Beyond keeping his competition at bay on slick surfaces, Aasbo has a title to defend, and he’s got a nice target on his back for 2016. But that’s struck a little fear into him, “I don’t want to lose the drive or the hunger [to succeed]…but I’m going to go out there and continue to put on a good show, and drift well.” Formula Drift season has definitely gotten under way for the SR by Toyota team, and to coincide with it, our latest season of Driven2Drift.
