SEP 10th 2009: Fredric Aasbo and Team Japan Auto HEADS TO THE US and the Formula DRIFT Finals!
Following Fredric Aasbo & Team Japan Autos successful European drifting ventures this year, the Japan Auto crew is getting ready for their return to United States and the final round of the US Formula DRIFT Championship on October 16th-17th. The final will be held at the infamous "House of Drift": Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, California, known for its steep banking and hard walls surrounding the track. Fredric is eagerly anticipating the event.

- The Formula DRIFT Championship is the pinnacle of international drifting, and we competed against many of these guys at last years Red Bull Drifting World Championship. Back home, we have won the last 8 events we have participated in, and we could not have asked for a better season leading up to the Formula DRIFT Finals. We have worked hard to improve the Japan Auto Supra, which is now more powerful and has more grip than ever. Last years car was a modified street car - we now have a race car. We are heading out to learn more from the big guys, and I can't wait to go back to Sunny California and go up against the best!

The Team Japan Auto Supra will be running on Falken AZENIS RT-615 tires at Irwindale, which is the same tire that brought the team to a position as the best European team at last years Red Bull Drifting World Championship.

- Falken Heavy Hitter Vaughn Gittin Jr. took the victory at Irwindale last year and the Falken Tire crew is highly experienced in car setups and planning for this track. We are grateful for the support from Falken Tire, and we will definitely be putting our efforts in to make them proud!

Fredric Aasbo is the most winningest North European drifting driver, sponsored by Japan Auto, BS Bildeler, PBC, BlackBox Media and Panvulk/CRC. Team Japan Auto is currently seeking title sponsorship for the remaining 2009 events and 2010 ventures in Europe and in the US.

Established on the streets of Japan, drifting has evolved into a worldwide competitive sport that challenges each driver's driving ability and vehicle control. Formula DRIFT is recognized as the North American professional drifting championship (www.formulad.com).
