Things get more exciting as only eight are left. Top qualifier (of 91 points) Daynom Templeman meets Ryuji Miki (who has 14 years of drifting experience) and it was Miki who won it when Daynom made a mistake while chasing. The judges could not reach a consensus about Daigo Saito against Non Saranon so One More Time was called for!
Yes, Saito moves on.. That means Djan is the Formula Drift Asia overall champion! Kokae and Rhenadi Arinton were asked to go One More Time and Rhenadi dug his own grave when he knocked into the wall of the second clipping point when he was the lead car for the second run. That gives Kokae the go-ahead. Rifat Sungkar put up a very aggressive run against Ah Fai, the only Malaysian in the top 8, that the judges called for One More Time. During the second run Ah Fai was leading the drift when Rifat hit the wall of the second clipping point. This gives Ah Fai the advantage, but he hit his car into the wall of the entry to the hairpin. His rear left wheel suffered from positive camber, but Ah Fai still made it to the start line after a five-minute grace period to repair his car. Time was too short to solve the big problem but Ah Fai did make it to the start line for the re-battle. Unfortunately, the car was in no shape to compete anymore for the day.
