EVENT DETAILS

Event: Formula DRIFT PRO Championship Round 4: Borderlands

 

RESULTS FROM FD PRO QUALIFYING

  1. Adam LZ (USA) – LZ S15
  2. Fredric Aasbo (Norway) – Rockstar Energy Drink Toyota GR Supra
  3. Michael Essa (USA) – FCP Euro / Liqui Moly / GT Radial BMW M3

 

NOTES

  • FD Erie takes place at Lake Erie Speedway – a new venue for the FD PRO series that is popular with grassroots drift drivers in the Great Lakes area
  • Rain dominated qualifying, with conditions changing throughout the session
  • Three FD PRO drivers were unable to begin qualifying, and Trenton Beechum (USA) was unable to complete a qualifying run in the Clonex Racing / Nexen Tire Ford Mustang, meaning only 29 drivers qualified for the Top 32 competition heats
  • With only 29 qualifiers, the top three drivers get a bye round thought the Top 32 into the Top 16, giving them a major advantage
  • FD Erie sees the best ever FD PRO qualifying position for Adam LZ in first place
  • The wet surface, new track and vehicle problems resulted in some unusual match-ups in the Top 32. The most anticipated will see Round 3 winner and points leader, Matt Field (USA) in the Falken Tire / Drift Cave Chevrolet Corvette, face Round 3 second-place finisher, Chris Forsberg (USA), who qualified last after experiencing more mechanical problems in his NOS Energy / GT Radial Nissan 370Z
  • Top FD PRO rookie is 12th place Joshua Reynolds (USA) in the Drift Force / Nexen Tire F22 Eurofighter BMW
