April 15, 2024

GT Radial, a brand from Giti Tire (USA) Ltd., had two podium finishes at the Formula Drift Pro Championship Road 1 in Long Beach, Calif., on April 13. 

Simen Olsen, GT Radial driver, claimed second place and Aurimas ‘Odi’ Bakchis finished third. Both are a part of the Team Feal racing team for GT Radial.  

“It was a challenging event with the inclement weather, but the GT Radial tires performed extremely well in the wet and we’re off to a good start for the 2024 season,” says Mike Meeiem, motorsports manager for GT Radial.   

“It was an excellent showing by Team Feal with two drivers on the podium.” 

GT Radial has renewed its partnership with Formula Drift for another three-year term to provide tires to teams in the Pro Championship. Additionally, GT Radial will remain the Official Tire of the PROSPEC series for up-and-coming drivers for another two years.
