The weekend of April 27th & 28th saw Fredric Aasbo and Team RS-R debut the brand new RS-R V8 Toyota GT86 at Formula Drift Asia Round 1. The event was held at the Thunderdome Circuit in Melbourne, Australia, and was broadcast to 200 million Asian FOX Star Sports recipients.

– This event got my blood running. The RS-R 86 project has been a crazy venture so far, and our debut of the car down here received an overwhelming reception. I’d like to thank each and every one that came out to support and watch this historic event go down.

Fredric and Team RS-R ended up in fourth place out of the 24 competitors, just shy of a podium for the new car’s debut. Paired up with American-Japanese driver Robbie Nishida, Fredric did however pull off the win in the X-mini Nations Cup Team Drift Competition.

The next Formula Drift Asia Round is held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on June 29th.
