IRVINE, CALIF., June 9, 2016 – The Formula DRIFT Championship returned to Orlando Speed World for Round 3 of the PRO Championship and Round 2 of the PRO2 Championship. Thousands of fans braved hot and humid conditions to watch Team Achilles create massive smoke clouds and ultimately take two podiums.
Marc Landreville continues to dominate in the PRO2 class with his second consecutive podium this season, and first ever number 1 finish within the Formula DRIFT series. Landreville currently sits first in the points championship, and will defend his place at the top at Texas Motor Speedway on September 9th – 10th.
Kristaps Bluss of HGK Racing was absolutely on fire this round. He handily dispatched with each and every competitor, until ultimately meeting Fredric Aasbo in the finals. Bluss’ correction and near spin in the finals handed the win to Aasbo, but gave the Latvian driver his first ever Formula DRIFT podium with his second place finish.
Congratulations to Landreville and Bluss on their podium finishes at FD Orlando!
Team Achilles will next compete at Round 4 of the Formula DRIFT Championship at Wall Stadium Speedway on June 17th and 18th.
