Scion Racing Preview for Formula Drift

Scion Racing Preview for Formula Drift

With the official kick-off to Formula D right around the corner, Team Scion Racing wanted to show off some of their new hardware before the big show. In a relaxed atmosphere, VIPs were invited to downtown LA's Far East club to meet the drivers, the team and enjoy the festivities.

With an open bar and some good eats attendees were also entertained with videos playing on all big screens highlighting the Scion Racing effort from 2010. The overall vibe communicated loads of excitement for the upcoming 2011 season especially with Rookie of the Year, Fredric Aasbo ready to make a bold statement.
