Formula Drift Hype: Ryan Tuerck Wins Round 3 In Orlando (Quick Recap)

FormulaDrift2015_Orlando_Podium_small

This weekend Formula Drift returned to Florida at a brand new venue in Orlando Speedworld.  Many didn’t know what to expect from this new track and this weekend we got the answer: rain and fire.  In the days leading up to the event the skies over the track opened up and poured onto the venue which cut practice short for some drivers who weren’t lucky enough to get out while the skies were clear.  Once the event hit on Saturday the theme was fire and lots of it as several cars burst into flames including reigning champion Chris Forsberg.  Forsberg’s car caught on fire during his final four battle against Ken Gushi.  Forsberg won the battle but the fire was so bad that he had to use the cockpit fire suppression system which caused technical problems with his cars electronics forcing him to bow out of the final battle against Ryan Tuerck, handing Tuerck the win.  Gushi’s number one qualifying spot guaranteed him third place and his second podium of the year.  The official event results and top 5 standings are below.  If you want to see all the craziness that happened this round check out FormulaDrift.com/Live and hit the “on demand” button to watch the event!
