Marc Landreville in the Perry Performance S14 aces the perfect weekend, topping qualifying and tandem competition
Formula DRIFT’s Pro 2 championship redeemed itself somewhat on the Orlando Speed World oval last weekend after a wobbly start to the season at Road Atlanta in May. Competition was noticeably fiercer in the Pro championship’s licensing series – perhaps because of the relative confinement of running in a bowl – and when the smoke and dust finally settled it was an ex-Pro, Marc Landreville in the Perry Performance Nissan S14 240SX, who not only won the whole thing, but did so in fairly convincing fashion.
Amid controversy and confusion, Fredric Aasbo in the Rockstar Energy tC claims victory, Kristaps Bluss in the HGK Motorsport M3 picks up first FD career podium
Formula DRIFT returned to the short oval at Orlando Speed World for Round 3 of 8 of its 2016 Pro Championship, and from the start everyone knew it would be different from last year’s rainy affair. The sun showed up this time, bringing unrelenting heat and humidity common to central Florida that wreaked havoc on both man and machine. In the end, 2015 series champion Fredric Aasbo behind the steering wheel of the Papadakis Racing Rockstar Energy Scion tC came out on top, but not without a lot of on-track drama and an equal amount of head scratching from a segment of fans.
