In the upcoming Formula Drift Malaysia and Singapore events, Team Goodyear will be battling it out against more than 30 top drifters.
For the Malaysian leg, Tan Tat Wei will be competing in the Toyota AE86 as he patiently waits for the new Nissan 180SX to be completed with final touches, due to be ready in time for the Singapore leg.
