FFF Drifting Department was established in 2016 as the drifting team for FFF Racing Group as a consequence of its success in GT racing, which has a rich motorsport history in F1 and D1GP series.

The team’s staff have 20-plus years of motorsport experience primarily in racing leagues around the world.

“I’m very excited to welcome TOPDON to the FFF Drifting Department family,” said Sceriffo. “Drifting is a highly technical racing style and incredibly demanding on our race cars. It’s important that ‘Fiorella’ runs with optimum performance, and TOPDON’s diagnostic tools help our crew make that possible. I’m excited about this year’s Formula Drift series and carrying the TOPDON name to the podium.”
