Scion Racing Testing/Media Preview Session
Toyota Speedway of Irwindale.

Ken Gushi and Fredrick Aasbo gets to shakedown thier cars for the first time in public with media present to shoot photos.
We were lucky enough to be on the roster for this preview and will share the photos from this day.

Preparing for the 2013 Formula D Season, Scion Racing goes out to Toyota Speedway of Irwindale...

With several dozen horsepower more on the FRS, and with magic re-tune of KW suspension and arm configurations, Ken seems to be in much better control of the FRS, and gained forward traction in mid-throttle dart from apex to apex.  I immediately saw that from corner to corner, mid-course transitions, the car will grasp the road with the rear wheels much more tenaciously than I remember from last season, and simply put down more of the available power from point to point.

Fredrick seems to be extremely happy with the all-new engine and added power for the tried and true tC, now even more tailored to Fredrick's style of smoother throttle application and less sharp inputs than 2012's Tony Angelo.
It really seems to be a big improvement in driver's connection to the car for both teams, and this means the action will be sharper, closer, and faster than last year.

Together, they are looking already to be in top contention, even on the first day of testing today~!
Here comes Long Beach, just 2 weeks away!
Get ready to be rocked by Team Scion Racing!
