It’s been a week since the inaugural Formula Drift Indonesia concluded and I hope you enjoyed the string of stories that I posted following the event. If you missed them, scroll to the end of this post with all the links for the stories and the photos. 


To reward you for following my stories, I have a little giveaway - A set of autographed Daigo Saito stickers (see immediate picture below) and a limited edition official Formula Drift t-shirt!

Ok if you don’t know what I’m talking about, it is this sticker series that I designed and are sold on my website here. Yes, I got Daigo Saito to autograph them when I saw him at Formula Drift Indonesia recently [see below for the list of my Formula Drift Indonesia 2011 stories]. 

316865_10150377209082710_602152709_8100687_762960697_nDaigo Saito – this name is not unfamiliar in the drifting arena. He entered the Formula Drift Asia (FDA) scene with a splash, carrying the D1GP 2008 champion title on his shoulders. At his FDA debut in Malaysia last December [read my first interview with him here] he clearly lived up to his name when he clinched the Formula Drift Malaysia 2010 title with a car he has never driven before. 


Having made his mark, Singaporean outfit SPARK Motorsports signed him on for Formula Drift Singapore 2011, the season opener for the FDA 2011 year and with his Toyota Altezza built up to his satisfaction, he won again [read the story of his FDSG adventure here]. He then took the same car to Jakarta and won a third consecutive time. Will he win again in Malaysia next month?
