PROLINE DRIFT SERIES ROUND 3

Dan Aclaro remains in 1st place after the Proline Drift Series Round 3 concluded over the weekend with Shane Bruce grabbing 2nd place with his latest winning performance. Catch the recap of the event as well as the current standings!

PRESS RELEASE – Guam International Raceway in Yigo was host to Round 3 of the Proline Drifting Championships and Round 8 of the Monster Motocross series.

The Proline Drifting Championships is presented by Monster Energy and Napa Auto Parts / Valvoline with special thanks to IP&E, Outback Steakhouse and AclaroFX for the live streaming with IT&E’s 4GLTE Mifi.

The day started with nice overcast weather for the MX riders. Drifters were in for a change in conditions though. During practice it was dry but before qualifying the track was hit with a light shower and drivers had to adapt quickly. Some surfaces were slick while others gripped, it was definitely going to be a challenge.

As qualifying started, more passing showers came thru but didn’t present too much of a problem until we got into the tandem matches that really showed the effects of Typhoon Soudelor hitting our friends in the CNMI. 8 drivers were in till mechanical issues held female driver Olive Epitacio from competition. Only 7 drivers committed and braved the conditions to see who would be crowned the winner of Round 3 and battling their way for the championship points.
