UPCOMING EVENTS

FDNJ 2014

While I was in Connecticut shooting a wedding my friend, and photographer, Kevin Choi was shooting for us at the Wall stadium. As usual, The Gauntlet provided a jam packed weekend of hard drifting and tough competition. This year’s attendance was the most it has ever been, bringing East coast enthusiasts together to support their favorite drivers.

“9 years ago we invested in Wall Speedway, when we paved the infield and it continues to prove to have been a wise decision as we experienced the biggest Wall Speedway crowd ever this weekend,” says Jim Liaw, President of Formula DRIFT. “This part of the country has become an integral and established stop for the championship.”

The final battle was fought between Hankook Tire teammates, Forsberg and Aasbo but one mistake by Forsberg helped Aasbo take his first ever career Formula DRIFT event victory, moving him into second place in the chase for the championship. The podium was rounded out by Aurimas “Odi” Bakchis in the Feal Suspension / Nitto Tire Nissan 240SX taking third place in the event, which is also his first professional career podium – Official FD statement.

“This has been such a long time coming. This is my dream from ten years ago when I first started watching Formula DRIFT,” said Fredric Aasbo, winner of Round 4: The Gauntlet. “I want to thank my team into turning the Scion tC into such a championship contender. We have had our trials and tribulations, but this is proof that I have the best team in the business.”

I hope to make it to an FD event before the end of the season, for now stay tuned for more coverage from the East coast! -Sebastian @sebasmarin
