Aasbø’s Grocery Getter has 1,000 HP
Toyota’s Fredric Aasbø recently sat down with CNET’s Roadshow to explain how his Toyota ‘grocery getter’ shoots fireballs and shreds tires in 40 seconds.
Aasbø, the 2015 Formula Drift champion, and Papadakis Racing unveiled a new race vehicle, the Toyota Corolla iM, for the 2017 season. Built from the Corolla assembled at TMMMS (Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Mississippi, Inc.), Aasbø’s 1,000 HP Corolla iM has advanced to Formula Drifts’s top-eight three times this year, including a victory in Orlando.
With his Orlando win, the ‘Norwegian Hammer’ is now tied for the Formula D career-wins lead with nine victories – all in a Toyota or Scion.
