Scion drifter Pat Cyr places first in Formula Drift

Scion racing driver Pat Cyr.

Last year, Scion brought the excitement of Formula DRIFT racing to Canada – hosting the largest drift event this country has ever seen, with more than 10,000 spectators enjoying the action. This year, Scion continues on the road of great success as Scion sponsored racer Patrick Cyr placed first in the first of four Formula Drift Canada events.

Scion is returning as the presenting sponsor of Formula DRIFT Canada for this summer, with a significantly expanded presence. Racing enthusiasts can look forward to the following future events as part of North America’s premiere drifting series:

  • Round 2 (Redemption) – July 18-19 at Autodrome de Montmagny, about 80 kilometres east of Quebec City
  • Round 3 (The Streets) – August 7-8 on the street course used for the Trois-Rivières Grand Prix
  • Round 4 (World Championship Round) – September 6-7 at Autodrome St-Eustache

Formula DRIFT features more than 60 licensed drivers from around the world competing on the circuit. Scion Canada is again sponsoring Patrick Cyr, one of Canada’s most accomplished drift racers, who is racing a newly built Scion FR-S with 2JZ-GTE engine that produces 630 wheel-horsepower.
