Winner of the Nizzpro Series in March this year, Rob Whyte, of team Motul Nismo Australia, decided to defend his title by taking part in a new series of five rounds.
At the start of the opening round organised on 22 May at the Archerfield track in Australia, Rob Whyte was quick to show his status as a favourite in the pro qualifying by taking first place. Same positive outcome following his battles: the Nissan 350Z driver managed to qualify for the final facing Danny Kenneally, another Australian drifter who recently did well during the Stadium Pro Drift Tour.
In the final, the least that can be said is that the crowd saw a superb duel between the two contenders for victory. Following a first battle, then a second – the first did not allow a winner to be chosen between the two drivers as they were so close – it was finally Danny Kenneally who won.
It's a sure bet that Rob Whyte will take his revenge at the next round of the season!
