Drift: Runing the Gauntlet

The Wall Speedway is one of the toughest tracks on the calendar of the Formula Drift season. The track lives up to its moniker as the “Gauntlet” with a 16 degree banked oval along the straightaway and 30 degrees on the turns.


The drivers are challenged on this course and “the Gauntlet” is the first on the schedule where drivers utilize the entire oval. This course is very tricky and many drivers have fallen victim to the degree of difficulty that the bank, straightaway, and inside turn creates. It’s pure madness.


Pure madness was also the battle between our friends Chris Forsberg in his NOS Energy Dring / Hankook Tire Nissan 370Z and Ken Gushi in his GReddy Racing / Nexen Tire SR Toyota 86 in the semi-finals. Ken made a big mistake in the run that gave Chris Forsberg the win to move onto the finals.


But at the end of the day Gushi earned some points in the championship and is now in position four in the 2016 Formula Drift season.
