KRISTAPS BLUŠS OF HGK MOTORSPORTS AND 2014 EEDC CHAMPION IS COMING TO FORMULA DRIFT

A third driver petition has been accepted allowing them to compete in the big show for 2015. The driver is Kristaps Blušs who dominated the EEDC series this season in his HGK Motorsports build BMW. Kristaps has some very unique flair to his driving style which I think will him a really interesting competitor for 2015 Rookie of the Year against Masashi Yokoi and Nikolett Szanto. Kristaps drives his BMW in a similar fashion to how Forrest Wang throws his Silvia around from what I have seen of his driving. He is a big WiseFab driver and some of the builds that I have seen come out of HGK Motorsports are nothing short of impressive. However, most of their builds are not even close to Formula Drift legal so it will be interesting to see if they opt to build a new car for the Formula Drift rulebook or maybe purchase an E46 that won a championship in Formula D and is now collecting dust down in Orange County from Michael Essa?
