A few months ago Charles Ng announced that he intended to return to Formula D for the 2014 season and soon after announced that he’d be in a G37 chassis that he had bought for the upcoming season right before he got his offer to race in the FIA World Touring Car Championship. The car is being built over at Matt Field’s new shop, Drift Cave, and he has been putting up some progress photos over the last two days, check em out.
Back in June Charles Ng reached out to Wrecked Magainze to talk about his recent podium at a CDC event in China and hint at a possible return to professional drifting.
About a month later rumors that he had purchased the LS7 powered Pontiac Solstice that Gardella Racing was selling that had previously been driven by Ryan Tuerck. Merit was given to these claims this past Friday when Charles brought the car out to a Sonoma Drift event to get some seat time in the Solstice. Charles did comment on an article about this showing saying that the Pontiac was purchased as a drift demo car for his new shop that he has opened stateside (I believe it’s Elite Performance located in Burlingame, CA). He said the car was fun and ran strong but was not a winning or competitive car by current FD standards.
Following these turn of events and comments from Charles Ng it now appears that Charles has reached out to Wrecked Magazine again to unveil some build photos for his new drift car, an LS3 powered Infiniti G37.
So it looks like Charles is poised for a 2014 FD return after taking a hiatus in 2011 to focus on his WTCC career with BMW.
