Knapik heads to Formula Drift pro 2 round 2

Knapik Heads to Formula Drift Pro 2 Round 2 in Atlanta!

Adam Knapik is one of those enthusiasts that loves cars and drifting so much that he will take an endless amount of a abuse just to have the opportunity to spend his day on track. Unfortunately that is exactly what has been happening to Adam and his team, abuse!

Preparing for Round 1 of Formula Drift Pro 2 in Orlando, with only days left before loading the car on the trailer for the cross country journey, Adam’s engine developed a rod knock. To blame was a faulty oil check valve…as disappointed as they were, the clock had run out and the game was over. While making the trip to Orlando wasn’t in the cards the team knew they needed to keep on pushing. Round 2 in Atlanta was only 2 weeks late and they still had to get a new engine in the car, tune it and make the cross country trip to Georgia. After a few days of work Knapik and the team had their backup LS2 engine swapped in, tuned and ready to flex in Atlanta this coming weekend at Road Atlanta.

We’ve been proud to be associated with Adam and his program for a few years now. ** Check out this video of Adam from a couple of years ago:**

He made his way through some road racing and time attack events but drifting seems to be where his heart is. Competing previously in Top Drift, a win there paved the way for his Formula D pro 2 license.

We look forward to see what Knapik and his team will do in Atlanta and are proud to have the opportunity to support an incredible driver and real enthusiast! Good Luck Adam…
