Formula Drift Round 2 hitting Road Atlanta May 11th and 12th. Utilizing turns 10A and 10B, I’m curious as to what Team Garrett has in store for us. Known as the “V8 Hunters” these 4 and 6 cylinder cars sponsored by Garrett are looking to hunt down those big boy V8’s. With big power LS1s to LSX Motors being run in Nissan Silvias and Ford Mustangs, these Torque monsters have dominated the playing field. “No replacement for displacement” Right???
Well, Garrett has stepped up to the challenge, sponsoring 12 competitors in the 2012 Formula Drift Series. These shots were of Formula Drift Round 1 Streets of Long Beach. Where Daigo Saito, a rookie to the Series, placed 3rd in his SC430 powered by at 2JZ-GTE motor and GTX4294R Turbo. This weekend Formula Drift will be in Atlanta this weekend. Let’s see what the Team Garrett drivers can do!
