- Monday GReddy coverage from Formula Drift #FDSEA 2014
Another Great 8 Finish for Ken Gushi and the GReddy Performance x Hankook Tire x Scion Racing FR-S in 2014, helps push Scion into the lead for the Formula Drift OEM Manufacture's Championship. Hankook also leads in the FD Tire Manufacture's Championship.
The GReddy - Turbo by Garrett 2JZ-powered FR-S makes great power, but getting all that power to the ground effectively has been a challenging task. After some tough rounds on the east coast, it has been great to have the FR-S back in the GReddy garage for preparation of the last 3 rounds...
#FDSEA was a good milestone for our progress. It also introduced a unique starting line chicane for the lead car to keep the cars closer together, entering the first turn. In Top32 Ken was matched up against the V8 Camaro of Tyler McQuarrie. After some good pressure on the Ken's following run, the Camaro ended up going off course and advancing the FR-S into the main event 16-car bracket.
most exciting battles of the weekend. The runs between the pair of 2JZ-powered FR-S was too difficult for the judges to declare a winner, so a OMT (One More Time) call was made to have them battle it out again. These runs were even closer. Eventually, Ken came out with the Win, moving him on to face the current championship leading contender, Chris Forsberg.
Next up #FDTX at Texas Motorspeedway on Sept.12-13.
Congratulations to FDNJ event winners: 1st Darren McNamara , 2nd Dean Kearney, 3rd Chris Forsberg
