The Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi is one of the world’s best motorsport venues, and home to competition ranging from endurance racing through Formula 1. You can now add Formula Drift to that list, since the U.S. based series ran an exhibition event there on February 25. The win went to 2010’s Formula Drift Rookie of the Year, Frederic Aasbo, driving a Toyota Supra. Aasbo will also take the seat at Papadakis Racing soon to be vacted by Tanner Foust, who has shifted his focus to the Top Gear America TV series. Video below.
If you want to catch a formula drift event live, there are rounds scheduled from coast to coast, starting with Long Beach, CA on April 8 and ending on October 8 in Irwindale, CA. The tour stops also include Road Atlanta, Palm Beach International Raceway, Wall Speedway, Evergreen Speedway and the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Head on over to the Formula Drift website for a complete listing.
