Good Year Formula Drift is @ Dataran Merdeka this weekend
It promises to be a spectacular show with lots of smoke, tyres squealing and girls screaming (maybe).
It can only be Formula Drift and this year the event is being held smack in the middle of the city in front of the historic Sultan Abdul Samad Building with a carnival adjoining at Dataran Merdeka.
“Drift in the ASEAN region is one of the fastest growing motorsports in the region today and we’re delighted to be renewing our affiliation with Formula Drift. This year, Team Goodyear Malaysia will be drifting using Goodyear’s Ultra High Performance (UHP) tires - the Eagle F1 Asymmetric tire - designed to enhance driving performance by providing maximum traction especially when taking corners,” said Nasution Abdul Rahman, Managing Director, Goodyear Malaysia.
“Goodyear has always had a rich heritage in racing. Its legacy is derived from an association with different forms of racing all over the world for over 100 years which has enabled Goodyear to extract significant learning, relative to tire performance that can be ultimately passed on to our consumers. We are proud to be showcasing the results of these learning at Formula Drift Malaysia,” he added.
Among the names to watch this year are Ryuji Miki (Japan) , David Templeman (New Zealand), Charles Ng (Hong Kong), Rifat Sungkar(Indonesia), Non Saranon(Thailand) and Ariff Johannis(Malaysia).
Come Early on Saturday
