Driving on any racing circuit is as much about being mentally prepared as it is one’s skill on the track. Episode 4 of Driven to Drift followed the Scion Racing team to Wall Speedway for Round 4 of Formula Drift where Ken Gushi, Fredric Aasbo, and Tony Angelo gave us some insight into the different ways they get the focus they need for the race.
For Ken and the GReddy Racing team, scouting the competition combined with a healthy dose of mid-drift head games seems to get the job done. Fredric Aasbo and the Papadakis Racing team, on the other hand, get the most out of the Need for Speed Scion tC by throwing caution to the wind and taking the best drivers head on. Meanwhile, for Tony Angelo and his team, it’s simply a matter of knowing that their car is prepared the best it possibly can be.
Although the weekend at Wall Speedway came to a premature end for all three drivers, Round 4 gave each of them some valuable information about where they need to be for the last three rounds of the Formula Drift season.
