Team Hyundai showed up to Wall Speedway, New Jersey with the 2013 Genesis Coupe Drift Car and driver Rhys "Mad Skilz" Millen.
Just like Formula Drift Palm Beach, the Genesis Coupe Drift Car adjusted to cope with changing weather and track conditions. Both wet and dry, the course presented various challenges as the race progressed. Wall Speedway is a very technical course, lots of corners made for a lot of excitement and tough competition.
Team Hyundai started the race off by taking on Michael Essa in the top 32. After progressing to the top 16, team Hyundai and driver Rhys "Mad Skilz" Millen faced Formula D veteran Daijiro Yoshihara and his Nissan S13 240sx. After an epic battle for top 16 Daijiro Yoshihara progressed and finished second. Team Hyundai is now 7th place in points and will continue to work hard and turn the heat up for the fans.
This year we're in the hunt for the championship, and will continue our quest for a podium finish. Stay tuned for more action and race recaps as we document the season and share with the fans.
