Following a successful inaugural season last year, the second Achilles Asian Drift Series returns with a four-leg campaign in 2012, with a bolstered cast of top drifters ready to thrill motorsport fans across the region.
Organised by ESPN STAR Sports Event Management Group, this season’s championship will flag off with Formula Drift Kuala Lumpur this month on the 19th and 20th. The Formula Drift events have attracted more than 24,000 spectators across its Asian legs last year and the upcoming season is set to draw bigger crowds with the organisers committed to elevate the fan’s experience with a new venue and a new street course for the Malaysian leg, which will be held at Speedcity at Selangor Turf Club, Seri Kembangan.
Formula Drift fans can also expect the competition between the drivers go up a notch with an intriguing battle brewing between the drivers. Fan favourites will welcome the return of last year’s Achilles Asian Drift Series Champion Japanese defending champion, Daigo Saito from Achilles Radial. Giving the Japanese driver a run for the trophy is Malaysia’s Tengku Djan Ley, the inaugural Formula Drift Asian champion in 2010, who is making his comeback this year. His traditional rivalry with Daigo and Thailand’s ace driver, Saranon Pornpatanarak from Team Overdrive will spark another fiery finish for the top of the podium.
