If there were one word you couldn’t call the 2016 Formula DRIFT season, it would be “predictable.” While Vaughn Gittin, Jr. and Fredric Aasbo each won twice over the course of the past seven months, the only truly foreseeable thing was Chris Forsberg and podiums. For seven rounds, Forsberg never won but podiumed each time. This consistency would lead to his championship at Irwindale, though he would break that streak at Round Eight. Only one other driver won more than Forsberg this year, which is further proof that Matt Field is inching closer to becoming a threat to the championship in the very near future. If there was one thing that could be said for certain, it’s that Round Eight of the ’16 Formula D Championship was a tough battle for everyone.
