May 9, 2011 – Round 2 of the Formula Drift Pro Championship series in Atlanta, Georgia was another exciting event for Forged Racing rookie driver Aurimas “Odi” Bakchis. With a fresh wrap from 702 Graphics and minor mechanical changes, Odi qualified 21st with the LS1-powered Nissan 240SX S-14. After having competed with top driver Dai Yoshihara at Round 1 in Long Beach, Odi was paired with 2010 Formula Drift champion Vaughn Gittin Jr for tandem competition in Road Atlanta. The tandem runs were solid and after deliberation and one judge’s vote for a “one more time” Odi was eliminated from the competition, finishing in the top 32.

Road Atlanta provided great fans, nice weather, and aggressive tandem runs for Odi. With a ready crew and car, the Bakchis Motorsports/Forged Racing team is looking forward to the remainder of the 2011 season.
