Formula Drift Round 4: Wall Speedway


Formula Drift Round 4: Wall Speedway

by Sarah Forst

Wall Speedway isn't called “The Gauntlet” for nothing.  Gauntlet: a metal armored glove meant to protect during combat.

At the Wall, the gauntlet is the guardrail at the top of the bank – an industrial strength can opener with a 30 degree bank that shreds any fender, bumper, or tire that dares to get too close. Throw in some East Coast thunderstorms and you're guaranteed a good show. The Long Beach, Atlanta, and Orlando events produced four drivers who made it to the podium in 2 of 3 rounds- Aurimas Bakchis, Ryan Tuerck, Chris Forsberg, and Ken Gushi with the top spot at Long Beach going to last year's FD Wall winner- Fredric Aasbo. Could he make the Wall his bitch again?
