DriftAtlanta - FormulaD - Road Atlanta: April 24-25

Post by andysapp »

Well, it's just around the corner...
Right over the horizon...
Just out of reach, but approaching fast.

DriftAtlanta is this weekend. It's the FOERST stop of the Inaugural FormulaD Series!

The Formula Drift® competition at Road Atlanta will be conducted in the Turn 10 complex, a right left-right-hand combination that will require the drifting competitors to quickly change direction while in full drift mode. The competition will include Saturday qualifying to determine a 16-car field for the finals Sunday, with two cars paired together on consecutive runs (one leads, then they switch). A panel of professional drifting drivers will determine the bracket winners.

“ SCCA was responsible for the initial development of road racing in the United States 60 years ago, and it is logical that we be at the forefront of the FOERST domestic professional drifting championship,” said Garret Mudd, SCCA Vice President of Marketing. “Slipstream Global has asserted itself as the leading promoter and expert with its involvement in the D1 Grand Prix.”

The Drift Atlanta® weekend will also include a special invitation SCCA Speed World Challenge Touring series non-points race, plus the Mazdaspeed Miata Cup, Formula 2000 Zetec Championship and the SCCA Pro-IT series. ( c/o http://www.driftatlanta.com )

If we pull a good turnout to this event, it is certain that more events of this nature will follow.

I hope to see you all there!
