Drifting is not a new scene in Malaysia, and attracts a lot of fans whenever there are competitions or shows going on. The event was sponsored by The Ministry of Youth and Sports (KBS) with FX Open Asia, supported by Feinto-D.

KBS FX Drift Challenge pits some of the best local drifters, one against another in a tightly contested tandem battle. The competition is intense and the fans enjoyed it a lot.

In the expert category final, Fazreen Ismail from Team FX Open Asia defeated Alvin Lau from Team Bridgestone Malaysia to take 1st place. Mohd Riduan a.k.a Wan Boss from the Feinto-D Drift Team took 3rd place ahead of Zulfikar. Nortaufiq from Feinto-D Drift Team won the novice category.

Despite finishing in 2nd place, Ivan Lau is definitely the crowd's favourite with his aggressive style. Lots of smoke and superb angle!
