Mats Baribeau - #30

2013 Formula Drift Rookie of the Year

You know you're a true Canadian when you play hockey, love maple syrup, bacon and say Eh all the time. Mats Baribeau born July 12, 1986, was only 8 years old when he first performed laps on a makeshift racetrack. Since 2007, Mats' ultimate goal was to compete in FORMULA DRIFT. Hard work and dedication made it all possible in 2011 after finishing 2nd overall in the Pro Am series called "Hold the Line" earning him an FD license. Mats is a talented driver who showcased his skills and was the First Canadian to earn the Rookie of the Year title (2013) and highest Canadian qualifier in a Formula Drift event (5th place in Palm Beach) in an unconventional car. Mats has partnered up with many great companies for the upcoming 2015 FORMULA DRIFT season and is gearing up for what should be another exciting season.
