The team was really looking forward to putting our new Cosworth-tuned Anti-lag feature into action. Both the FR-S and Ken Gushi were preforming great all weekend. With solid comments from other drivers all weekend, the team was excited to do well.
Ken ran a solid and safe first qualifying run, but didn't quite get the score we needed from the judges. And the 2nd run added some bad luck with rain. In the end, we still made it into the Top32, feeling very optimistic for Saturday's Eliminations.
Ken advanced pass the Top32 eliminations by being very close to #2 qualifier, M. Ovcharik in is S13 in the following run and getting a good gap on the lead run.
In the main 16 brackets, Ken faced off with K. Moen in is 350Z. Ken had a great follow run, keeping the FR-S right on his rear fenders the who lap. And the lead run was solid, with a larger gap. Unfortunately the Judges wanted the pair to go "One More Time" On the next follow run, Ken was just too aggressive and ended off line and hitting the Z, ending our FD Palm Beach run in the Top16.
The GReddy X Scion Racing Drift FR-S move up in the standing to 14th in the championships.
