CALGARY (June 17, 2010) – Team AMR/Yokohama driver Mark Tschritter has drawn first blood in the Drift Mania Canadian Championship West with an inspired win here in the first DMCC West Pro Series round at RaceCity Motorsports Park. Tschritter, of Edmonton, qualified third for the pro division event with a single pass in his Nissan, then powered through eliminations to win his first event of 2010 and take an early lead in the five-round championship.
Tschritter faced Team AMR/Yokohama teammate Andrew Moschuk in the first round of eliminations, but a persistent clutch problem in Moschuk’s Nissan gave Tschritter the round and launched him toward the Pro Series finals. Both Team AMR/Yokohama cars run on Yokohama S.drive tires. The next round in the DMCC West schedule is slated for July 18, 2010, at Castrol Raceway in Edmonton.
