It’s the grand finale of the 2012 Formula Drift season at Irwindale this coming weekend, and there are six drivers within the magic hundred points that a win delivers of the overall leader, Vaugh Gittin Jr. He heads the table with Daigo Saito and Rhys Millen not far behind, but Justin Pawlak, Daijiro Yoshihara, Fredric Aasbø and Ryan Tuerck all have a mathematical possibility of snatching the title away.
The Speedhunters team will be out in force at Irwindale, with Miki Taka and Courtney Day hosting a new Speedhunters booth at the track and MadMike Whiddett also on hand – if you are there this weekend be sure to drop by.
With the anticipation building ahead of the title fight, it’s a good time to look back at last year’s amazing event courtesy of some Larry Chen video goodness. Irwindale 2011 in a breathless two and a half minutes!
