2017 Formula Drift Atlanta Recap [Gallery]

While all eyes were on Fredric Aasbo and Nitto Tire's Vaughn Gittin Jr. going into Round 3 of the Series, the Formula Drift gods had other plans for the Road Atlanta podium. Much to everyone's surprise, Orlando winner Aasbo didn't make it past the Top 32 tandems, and former Atlanta winner and No. 1 qualifier Gittin Jr. was unable to reproduce last year's results. This time, it was James Deane who ended up on top — yet again — tucking away his second event win this season after just three rounds, with fellow European drivers Dean Kearney and Kristaps Bluss on either side of him on the podium. Gittin Jr. landed in a respectable fifth place, also ranking fifth in the overall Series standings — still within reach of the championship.
