Fredric Aasbo and Need for Speed/Papadakis Racing squad score accolades for successful 2012 Formula Drift season
2011 was a crazy year. Ups and downs, trials and tribulations – 2011 had it all!
It was my first year as a Need for Speed athlete, and my first year as a Scion Racing driver and my first year of working with Papadakis Racing. All in all, a lot of things were new, but luckily the things of importance stayed the same. I am very grateful to still be able to work with the people that have helped me out over the years with Japan Auto.
On September 4th, Fredric Aasbo and Team Need for Speed Japan Auto were able to clinch the victory at United Kingdom’s biggest drifting event: The TRAX/British Drift Championship Super Pro Finals at the Silverstone F1 Circuit.
