CTEK continues sponsorship with Fredric Aasbo
CTEK is delighted to be continuing their sponsorship with professional drifter and stunt driver, Fredric Aasbo.
Defending champion Aasbo, originally from Norway, is known for his flat-out style. He has achieved more than 100 podium finishes on three continents over the past decade of competition and has achieved the most wins of any driver in Formula Drift history.
He was crowned Formula Drift Champion for the second time last year and is returning to Formula Drift in 2022 to defend his title, driving the Rockstar Energy Toyota GR Supra.
Bobbie DuMelle, Executive Vice President of CTEK, said: “We are really excited to be continuing our sponsorship with Fredric, who is a long-term global partner for CTEK. As well as being a fellow Scandinavian, Fredric shares CTEK’s core values of commitment, quality and a determination to win, so this is the perfect partnership for us. We’d like to congratulate Fredric on a fantastic season last year, and wish him every success for 2022.”
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with CTEK again this season,” said Aasbo. “I’ve come to rely on CTEK chargers as I travel from race to race – both on and off track. In addition to competing at events across the world, I practice in a lot of different vehicles in the off-season and I often find myself in need of charging batteries. With CTEK it truly is a case of ‘set it and forget it’ – I just hook up the charger and know that the batteries will be taken care of in the best way possible.”
CTEK, which is headquartered in Sweden, has developed Smarter Battery Chargers that monitor battery health and respond by delivering the appropriate level of charge without damaging the battery or the vehicle’s sensitive electronics. CTEK chargers ensure that a vehicle is ready to go, delivering peak performance in all conditions. Careful battery conditioning and charging is shown to extend battery life by up to three times, providing peace of mind for cars that are used every day or parked for extended periods.
Aasbo made his US debut at a global drifting invitational in 2008 and turned heads as the winner of the 2010 Formula Drift Rookie of the Year title. He joined Papadakis Racing in 2011 and since then he has charged through the drifting ranks around the world and is both a fan favorite and championship winner.
