Formula Drift M’sia 2011: Top 32 Qualifying Results (Provisional)

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

To say that today’s qualifying at Formula Drift Malaysia was eventful is an understatement. It was running fine with the first qualifying run until the dark clouds that had gathered unleashed its pent-up rain on us at Dataran Merdeka. 


Dika CH was the first one out in the wet conditions and met with an unfortunate accident at the first clipping point (his entry speed was a crazy 105km/h in the wet!!). The rain started to pour heavier thereafter so the competition was paused until the skies cleared.


The event resumed and we saw more killer runs from Daigo Saito, Manabu Orido and D Kohkae (see videos here).


Below are the provisional Top 32 qualifying results – why provisional?


Because Dika CH will be doing his two qualifying runs first thing tomorrow morning and he might be slotted into the Top 32 accordingly, depending on his score. That also means there’s no point releasing the battle bracket now as the contenders might change as well.
