Formula Drift’s east coast swing is kicking off this week with the series’ annual stop at Road Atlanta for Round 2 of the season. It’s one of the best spectator courses on the circuit thanks to a high speed entry and tight technical sections, though a propensity for spectacular crashes like the one Fredric Aasbo and Vaughn Gittin Jr. got into last season helps contribute to that reputation.
Nonetheless, Fredric, Ken Gushi, Tony Angelo, and the Papadakis, GReddy, and TAngelo Racing teams are all getting dialed in for the upcoming weekend at FDATL, as the amount of points they take off the table should be a good indicator of where their respective seasons will go from here. With the TAngelo Racing Scion FR-S mostly sorted out, it’s pretty safe to pencil Tony in for a solid showing that’ll undoubtedly give fans in attendance something memorable to take away with them. Likewise, the GReddy Racing team is ready to fully uncork the 2JZ powered GReddy Racing Scion FR-S, after just getting their feet wet in Long Beach.
As for Fredric’s Hankook Tire Scion Racing tC, let’s just say that the Papadakis team has their eyes set on a spot on top of the podium. The team has a good track record at Road Atlanta, and in Fredric, they’ve definitely got the talent to get them there. It’s going to be a fun event, and we’ll be looking forward to seeing it all go down. Be sure to catch the Scion Racing teams on race day on the Formula Drift livestream, and follow @ScionRacing on Twitter and Instagram for live updates all weekend long.
