Congrats to teammate Luigi for winning Best Nissan of IFO (Import Face Off) 2013. The car has come a long way and we at Team Verzus love when that hard work is recognized. Congrats!!
Brian Saip did an amazing job today for his first drift competition. He has been preparing a lot for this competition. There has been a few problems with the car that needed to be ironed out. Every drifting knows the pain of building, building, building, and rebuilding a car until it works the way you want it. Even though the baby blue LS1/6 S13 was not performing optimally, Brian still pushed his way to 11th in qualifying and ended up 8th overall. Very good results considering the 40+ drivers and the first time he has competed in a official Formula Drift ProAM competition. We wish you much luck here from your team, and hope you keep up the great work!
Here are some photos from the event.
