Aurimas “Odi” Bakchis has been drifting professionally since 2011, finishing 3rd overall in the Formula Drift USA championship in 2017. He has multiple event wins and has placed in the Top 5 overall in Formula Drift from 2014-2017, and 9th overall in 2018.
Odi has been intrigued by motorsports for as long as he can remember. Moving to the US from Lithuania when he was 8 years old, Odi was already familiar with the racing lifestyle since he had watched his father professionally race hydroplane boats in the European championship. Odi raced motocross in California, experimented with his own motorcycle suspension, and then opened a motorcycle suspension company.
