With the recent conclusion of Round 5 of the 2013 Hyundai Lateral Drift Championship held at Aseana City, we’ve seen David “DMF Drift” Feliciano bag the top spot in the pro division with his Nissan S13 Silvia. 2nd place went to Alex Perez in his Nissan RPS13. The photo above shows the two in their tandem battle, and as you can see, it was indeed a close fight!

But what would be exciting to see would be a Hyundai Genesis Coupe as part of the field. So far only Atoy Llave of Atoy Customs has used the Genesis in previous Lateral Drift events, but it would be interesting to see more of these battle it out against the rest of the field.
