Aurimas has been intrigued by motorsports for as long as he can remember. Moving to the US when he was 8 years old, Aurimas was already familiar with the racing lifestyle since he had watched his father professionally race hydroplane boats in the European championship. Aurimas raced motocross in California, experimented with his own motorcycle suspension, and then opened a motorcycle suspension company. Using his engineering and technical skills, he then started to explore various automotive hobbies from building custom four-link suspension systems to fabricating air-ride body-dropped sleds. After college he raced rally cars and expanded Feal Suspension to offer automotive suspension solutions. After a friend brought him to a local drift track in 2009, Aurimas purchased a Nissan S13. He decided to try drifting since he found it challenging and was intrigued by the ability to express driving style. In his first season of competitive drifting in 2010, Aurimas earned his professional license by winning the Vegas Drift Pro-Am series and placing second in the Top Drift Pro-Am series. Aurimas was awarded honors as the 2011 Formula Drift "Rookie of the Year" in his second season of competitive drifting. He finished the 2011 and 2012 seasons as a Top 16 driver in the Formula Drift series. Aurimas is eager to continue to grow as a successful driver in the sport and consistently rise to new challenges.
