- Monday GReddy coverage from Formula Drift #FDTX 2014
It was an interesting event for the Formula Drift teams after our mid-season break. From 100F degree Texas temperatures on Wednesday to rainy, wind in the mid 50s in practice, the weather was a bite of a surprise. But in all conditions the GReddy Performance X Hankook Tire X Scion Racing FR-S preformed well with it's new updates to the steering and cooling systems.
In qualifying Ken Gushi was very consistent and laid down two impressive runs, with good line and style. The first pass scored and 82 and the second a 81. Good enough for the number 8 seed in the Saturday's Top 32 tandem bracket.
Because it was also a Formula D Pro2 event, there was no Friday night practice.
In Top 32, Ken faced off against the newly revised RX-8 of Kyle Mohan. After two evenly matched battles, the Judges advanced Ken into the main event and opening ceremonies
So with one last round coming on Oct. 10-11 at the world-famous "House of Drift" Irwindale Speedway, it's all time to go all out!
Congratulations to FDTX event winners: 1st Fredric Aasbo , 2nd Odi Bakchis , 3rd Forrest Wang
