We went to the season opener of the 2016 Formula Drift series and took some pictures! The first day had plenty of rain, spin outs, crashes and a lot of new cars seeing an early retirement.
Without a doubt, this was one of the most exciting rounds of Formula Drift to unfold in the past few years. The driving was phenomenal, competition was fierce and less cars were breaking so the audience had a great showing. The stage is set for Atlanta, who knows who will podium at Round 2?
Final competition results are:
Chelsea DeNofa in 1st place in his BC Racing GT Radial E46 M3.
Fredric Aasbo in 2nd place in his Nexen Tire RockStar Energy Papadakis Racing Scion tC.
Third place was Ken Gushi in his Nexen Tire Greddy Racing Scion FRS.
