Patrick Mordaunt and Braille Auto Team Up

August 6, 2008 (Playa del Rey, Calif.) – It’s the goal of every young drifter making a name for themselves in amateur competitions, waiting for their shot at the big time. The “Big Time”, of course, is a relative term – but for most, it’s the chance to graduate from a Nissan S13 or S14 into something with a bit more horsepower. And, preferably, one that belongs to a bigger operation that is larger than a borrowed truck, open trailer and an EZ-Up (also known as a Willow Springs Hand Glider).

Patrick Mordaunt, the youngest competitor in the Formula Drift Pro Championship, made a large step forward with his 2008 Formula Drift campaign, while driving his trusty Nissan S14. Now, he is making his next big step, as he will be taking over the Braille Auto 350Z convertible for the remainder of the 2008 season. Mordaunt will drive the car for the first time at the fifth round of the Formula Drift season this weekend at Evergreen Raceway in Washington.

Mordaunt has had one top-16 appearance in his rookie season, when he went toe-to-toe with Vaughn Gittin, Jr. at Drift Atlanta. Overmatched on horsepower, Mordaunt battled hard in his Nissan S14 to force a One More Time, before losing to the powerhouse Mustang by a mere one point. The extra grunt provided by the supercharged 350Z engine should go a ways to ensuring a different outcome next time around for Mordaunt.

“I couldn’t be happier about getting into the 350Z this weekend,” said Mordaunt, who has had the opportunity to test his new ride in a video that was leaked earlier in the week. “Our S14 is a good car, but it will be great to pack a bit more horsepower with this 350Z. I’m very grateful to Blake Fuller and Braille Auto, as well as their sponsors, for making this happen.”

“I am extremely happy to have Patrick in our car,” said Blake Fuller of Braille Auto, who will also be competing in his 350Z coupe at Evergreen Raceway this weekend. “He’s obviously a talented driver with a long future ahead of him in this sport, and we were eager to have him driving for us, instead of against us!”

Patrick’s first weekend in the Braille Auto / PMRacing Nissan 350Z will be documented on RiceBoyTV.com’s Slider’s Ed Episode six.
