Behind the Smoke Two - Palm Beach Rain Drifting and Wrecking
A great video with some nice drifts has been published on youtube by GTchannel.
Daijiro Yoshihara suffered a devastating defeat at Formula Drift round 2 Atlanta. After that he flew to Malaysia to judge FD Asia, but now he is back in the US to take on round 3 Palm Beach.
There are sour memories of Palm Beach from last year when he was knocked out at top 32 but this time around he can't afford to miss the podium. Both first place JTP and second place Daigo Saito lead the overall standings and could leave Dai behind if he doesn't perform well this round.
He's off to a rough start as it starts raining minutes before his qualifying run...
Round 3 Palm Beach was very emotional and difficult for the racers, because of the rain. There were a lot of crashes, but still everybody are happy and satisfied.
Behind the Smoke gives a look into the real life of 2011 Formula Drift champion, Daijiro Yoshihara.
GTChannel's cameras follow Dai throughout the 2012 FD season both on and off the track giving drifting fans an exclusive look into what it takes to compete in the top professional drifting series of N.America.
The episode is produced by GTChannel in association with Discount Tire/America's Tire and supported by Falken Tire, GoPro and Netflix.
