Last weekend we were at the ELITE Speedway to witness our Prince of Drift – Tengku Djan Ley slayin’ some tires while killing the competition at the sixth round of the King of Nations Drift competition. Tengku Djan managed to bag his second win at the tournament, only two months since his return to competitive drifting after a 4-year hiatus. Previously Tengku Djan was more focused on circuit racing, spearheading his racing team in the Malaysia Championship Series.
This round saw a total of 32 drivers from Thailand, Indonesia, and Australia competing for the top spot. Tengku Djan, two-time winner of the Formula Drift Asia, recently won the Drift Competition at the Songkla Speedway in Thailand last May and was back to take home another win with his 7.0 LS7 transplanted 180SX (now dubbed the 700SX). Together with him was Charles Ng, who has competed in a few seasons in Formula Drift USA and currently competes in D1GP China. Charles is also a touring car racer racing in the 86 One-Make Race in Japan.
“It has been an awesome start to my comeback with two wins back to back. The car has never felt better and we looking at improving things further for the year. Things are looking good for the team” was Djan’s overall feedback on his win. He is proud of the determination and dedication displayed by his teammate Charles and also his crew that drove their team to their win.
At the end of this month we will be seeing Tengku Djan race in Thailand once more before the 700SX Smokemaker makes its way to the FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup at the end of September. We’re looking forward to seeing him in action beyond our borders and believe the Prince of Drift will reign supreme in these two upcoming drift battles.
