Justin Pawlak has just taken the win at round two of the Formula Drift Championship series over our own Speedhunters crew member, Fredric Aasbo.
Fredric was on great form and entered the final having knocked out crowd favorite Daigo Saito in the top four bracket. Both performed amazingly all weekend and I was very excited to see them battle for the podium spots.
The final boiled down to Fredric making a mistake going into his lead run, which gave Justin the advantage, and the subsequent victory.
Justin is now leading in the points championship with 209 points after two back to back victories, but Daigo Saito is not far behind with two consecutive 3rd places finishes. Fredric Aasbo now moves into third in the standings.
Stay tuned for more coverage from Formula Drift Atlanta!
congrats JTP! and if Saito is coming to Malaysia this weekend, it'll be worth writing a hectic story in a driver's blog. :)
I think Formulal Drift is over. Once all these MUSCLE cars started showing up it started becoming to much like NASCAR.
Daigo needs more podium chicks haha.
Awesome stuff, I really enjoyed the live online coverage, and even saw Larry running around during the winners announcement!
@Supra LMAO I was thinking the exact same thing.
@ErikOckwell all money spent on tires. i mean, he participated in FD, D1GP, FD Asia. so there's none left for the girls. :)
