Blake Olsen Unveils Formula Drift E92

Blake Olsen just unveiled his new for 2019 E92 drift car at Formula Drift in Orlando over the weekend. Blake’s E92 is a ground up build with an attention to detail that appears more like a show car than a machine built to terrorize the Formula Drift Pro2 class. 

In Blake’s first event with the new car, he qualified a very credible 8th spot out of 35 drivers trying to get into the tough 16 car field. We think this shows not only the quality of the build, but also the caliber of driver.

We were treated to some behind the scenes photos and specs on the car prior to Formula Drift’s 2nd round. Phenix is proud to partner with Blake this season and can’t wait to see him take on FD in Atlanta! Now check out this killer build, and bonus points if you can spot the bird.
