Podium finish for Bakchis using EBC drift car Bluestuff brake pads

EBC assisted Formula Drift racer Odi Bakchis has gained a podium finish just recently using EBC Bluestuff car brake pads. Odi gained his 1st carbon fibre trophy for the podium finish in which he secured 3rd position during round 4 of the New Jersey Formula Drift.


The weekend began with a strong start for Bakchis when he qualified in 5th place in his EBC Bluestuff brake pad equipped Nissan 240X. Paired with co-pilot Ryan Kado for the Top 32 race, with Matt Field for the Top 16 race, Bakchis went on to win the Great 8 tandem round competing against Daijiro Yoshihara, the former series champion. Bakchis then secured a third place finish in the Final 4 paired with Chris Forsberg.


Bakchis has only previously gained 2 fourth place finishes in the past (2011 & 2013), so this marked his first ever professional podium. Only three more events remain now in the 2014 season with Bakchis contending for the top of the Championship. He is currently in overall 5th place with series points.


The next round of Formula Drift takes place in Washington on July 18-19 at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe.
