Coming off a blistering start from Round 1 Long Beach, Aurimas “Odi” Bakchis takes another victory in Formula Drift, this time at the infamous Orlando course.
Bakchis had some incredible battles leading up to the Top 4. Odi then went toe to toe with Vaughn Gittin Jr’s RTR Mustang. After having two consecutive OMT’s (one more time) from the judges, it was Odi in his S14 who would prevail and move on to the finals. “…and I knew it was going to be a hard battle against Vaughn (Gittin Jr). It’s been a long time since I’ve had two OMTs but he really made me work for it.”
Odi’s S14 is fitted with Whiteline Suspensions front sway bar #BNF42Z as well as the rear bar BNR11XXZ to make sure his car is handling perfect in the harsh conditions that these Formula Drift Pro vehicles go through.

Odi then went on to battle the three-time Formula Drift champion Chris Forsberg. After a disappointing first lead run form Forsberg, he went on to de-bead a rear tire costing him the run and leading Bakchis to victory. “… I’m stoked to take the win and move into round three with this momentum.”
Odi stands tall as leader in points with Forsberg and Denofa trailing behind. Round 3 is only a few weeks away in Atlanta Georgia.
