LONG BEACH, California (September 19, 2021) – A big weekend for the Papadakis Racing Toyota team in Long Beach saw Fredric Aasbo and the Rockstar Energy Toyota GR Supra earn a second place result and move into the Formula Drift series points lead ahead of next month’s season finale in Irwindale, California. The result also vaults Toyota to the top of the Auto Cup standings, while partner Nitto Tire extends its lead in the Tire Cup rankings.
Ryan Tuerck drove his Gumout / Nitto Tire / Mobil 1 Toyota Corolla to second place in a wild Seattle event this weekend that saw sold-out grandstands and hard charging on-track action. “We found a great rhythm here in Seattle,” said Tuerck. “The feeling of riding the bank in full drift on this track is amazing and the fan excitement kept us pumped all day long.”
ENGLISHTOWN, NJ (June 20, 2021) – Fredric Aasbo drove the Rockstar Energy Toyota GR Supra to third place on Saturday in wet weather conditions at Englishtown’s Old Bridge Township Raceway. On the strength of back-to-back podiums, Aasbo is now third in the points standings with five rounds to go in the 2021 Formula Drift Championship. Aasbo narrowly edged out his Papadakis Racing teammate Ryan Tuerck in the Gumout/Nitto Tire Toyota Corolla Hatchback for third place. Both advanced through the competition ladder into the Final 4, but Aasbo’s higher qualifying score secured the podium. Tuerck finished fourth.
