The sporty, rear-wheel drive Scion FR-S is already making a name for itself in the minds of automotive enthusiasts. Following the FR-S’ class win in the 24-hours of Nurburgring, Scion is continuing it’s assault in the motorsports scene.
Today Scion announced that it will be debuting its Racing Team in the Canadian Driftmania series, with a new FR-S drift car. Scion has chosen local legend Pat Cyr to represent the Scion brand. Cyr has more than a dozen podium results on his record, including the Canadian Driftmania Championships as well as the US Xtreme Drift Circuit series.
Cyr has previously competed with an AE86, one of the cars Scion looked back at when developing the FR-S.
“We’re thrilled to be supporting grassroots racing in Canada through our involvement with Pat Cyr and his Cyrious Drift team – one of the top teams in the game,” said Larry Hutchinson, a Senior Executive at Scion Canada. “With his passion for the AE86, Pat has a deep appreciation for how that heritage shines through in the FR-S. He’ll have a lot of fun building his FR-S drift car this year and racing it next year.”
