Drift Racer Severely Tested as Federal King of Nations Heats up in Malay and Thai

The 2016 Federal Tyres King of Nations Drift Championship heated up as the races returned to Malaysia and Thailand for Asian kickoff. More than 40 drivers across the world raced not only against each other but also under the 40-degree heat, pushing racers, cars, and teams to absolute limits.

Despite blistering temperatures, Australian driver, Michael Prosenik, dominated the Federal Tyres King of Nations series with impressive skills and steady performances in Malaysia and Thailand. Local favorites from Thai, Chanatpon Kerdpiam and Davide Dorigo, also nabbed home wins after finishing with first and third place on the scorching Pathum Thani track.

"As a major sponsor of The 2016 Federal Tyres King of Nations , Federal Tyres is proud to be part of world's largest drift game and to showcase our motorsports tires for street and racing performance, even under demanding temperature conditions. We look forward to delivering a series of incredible drift races for global exposure," said Da-Wu Chen, Sales and Marketing Director of Federal Tyres.

Following the May break, the 2016 Federal Tyres King of Nations will continue to hit Japan's Ebisu Circuit and Nikko Circuit on July 2 and July 9 respectfully. With double points to be awarded at Nikko Circuit, the competition will definitely escalate for final stage of the Asian series.
