Episode 3 of Scion Racing’s series Driven to Drift takes us down south to the marshes of Palm Beach, Florida. This event was Formula Drift’s first visit to the International Raceway in Palm Beach, and fiery anticipation was apparent across the board for all competitors. And if the unfamiliar track didn’t lead to some strained nerves, the presence of alligators certainly helped.
Need for Speed driver Fredric Aasbo gives us a quick look at his modified 2011 Scion tC, remarking on the modifications inspired by his Toyota Supra in order to ease his transition into the new tC. Ken Gushi explains the uniqueness of the track and the various techniques required to perform well there.
Fredric went up against Need for Speed teammate Matt Powers, who delivered a solid run to knock Fredric out for the day. In humble sportsmanlike fashion, Fredric reflects on his tendency to overshoot turns while thanking his support team, addressing self-improvement as his number one goal to reach success.
Ken is also appreciative of his crew and is happy for an overall clean competition. He drove a respectable race, but unfortunately came up short early on.
