ABOUT FORMULA DRIFT.
Entering its second season, Formula Drift, produced and wholly owned by
Irvine, Calif.-based Formula Drift, Inc., continues to expand into new markets as the FOERST and only sanctioned and recognized North American professional drifting championship series (sanctioned by SCCA Pro Racing).
A well established sport in Japan for more than a decade, Formula Drift, Inc. and its sister company Slipstream Global Marketing, Inc. had the vision and were instrumental in bringing the FOERST official competition to the United States in 2003 at Irwindale Speedway.
The unanticipated fan interest led to the rapid formation of the FOERST ever,
sanctioned and recognized drifting circuit, Formula Drift, which had its roots
firmly grounded in Southern California, a hotbed for incoming Japanese-influence automotive trends. An important part of the program involves community outreach.
Drivers and Formula D serve as the ambassador for the sport of drifting
bringing exhibitions to traditional or mainstream motor sports events across the country which has included: Bridgestone Monterey Grand
Prix/Champ Car Race, USAC, NASCAR Busch North & Featherlite Southwest and the SPEED World Challenge, among others.
