Marc Landreville Formula Drift Recap Presented by Perry Auto & Competition!

The biggest drift event of the year is with out a doubt the weekend Formula D rolls into town. The event consist of Formula D Canada RD3 and Formula D ( US ) RD5 and it all goes down at the Canadian House, Autodrome St-Eustache.  To make things even more insteresting, Marc was competing in both FD and FDC events! 

On the Thursday all the teams rolled in to set up and for practice sessions. 

The original plan was for Marc to run FD Canada with his V8 S14 and run FD US with his 2JZ S14 but after some damage suffered to the V8 car at a DMCC event the weekend before the decision was made to run both series with the 2JZ car. 

With the pit area set up and drivers meeting completed it was time to head out and burn some tires for the first practice session of the day. 

Even tho it had been 8 months since Marc drove his 2JZ car and to add to the fact that the car only got finishing fine tuning its engine and suspension the day before, Marc was looking strong right off the bat.

Marc even has some great practice runs with a certain mustang pilote. 

 After the FD US practice session it was time for the FD Canada practice session. Marc made use of all the time he could to get the car dialled in.

 FD US qualifying was an event all on its own. The track was super wet in some areas and drying in others and being the first out Marc had some of the worse conditions but never the less he put down some solid runs and got into 12th place.

 Marc really started pushing but the engine started having a few issues so the team had to deal with that instead of being able to get the suspension dialled in the way they wanted.

 As soon as both cars initiated Marc felt something was off and slacked pace a little and boy was he right. Denofa went hard into the wall.

 Not the proximity Marc was going for!  The hit was so violent that it ripped the right wheel and suspension right out of the Mustang.

 Denofa actually tried to fix his car but did not have enough time so all Marc had to do was complete his "lead" lap and he locked in the win.

 Despite the crowds chants for a OMT the judges sided with Aasbo. Marc still  put up a hell of a fight and a great show for the fans.
