[VIDEO] Formula Drift M’sia 2011: Killer runs from qualifying!

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

Here are some killer runs from today’s qualifying session - 

Daigo Saito indeed lived up to expectations and scored 90% on his first run, before clocking in a 94.5% on semi-damp ground in this video of his second run! His speed in this run was 117.6km/h, while his speed in the first run was 132km/h (the highest entry speed of all weekend!).

Max Orido did a blitzing opening run to score 86% for his first qualifying run – just look at how he threw that RSR Supra into the corners man. His score for the second run in semi-damp conditions was 90%, not good enough to beat Daigo.

D Kohkae was putting in really good runs from his first practice run and he carried that consistency throughout the day. He scored 88.5% on this run in dry conditions.

For D Kohkae’s 2nd qualifying run, the ground was already dried from the slight rain and he put in yet another good run worthy of 84% – not better than his 1st run though!
