Formula Drift Asia :: Melbourne 2013

Mad MikeFD Asia

Last month Melbourne was blown away by one of the biggest events of it’s kind, Formula Drift Asia (FD).  FD crossed the seas and arrived on our shore to set up camp at Melbourne’s Calder Park Raceway with quite literally the biggest names in drift motor sport.  They were all set to compete as the worlds eyes were on this humble little garden state at the bottom of Australia.

If that wasn’t enough to wet your drifting taste buds, Melbourne goers were treated to a full round of drift battles the day before FD thanks to the Australian Drifting Grand Prix (ADGP) who were a massive piece of the puzzle for this monumental event.
You can check out all the action from our ADGP post coming soon (watch this space).
