Burning rubber, smoke in the air, the scream of tires going sideways at 90 miles an hour, and the roar of an 850 hp engine as it tears the car out of a corner while lining up the next one. This is Formula Drift… and I love it! Formula Drift has risen to become the premier drifting competition in the US, offering the thrill and spectacle of exhibition drifting for fans all across the States. Attending any kind of Motorsport event is all about the atmosphere, and Formula Drift has it in bucket loads. The noise, the smell, the on track action, it all comes together to make this a drama filled and very exciting Motorsport. I’m one of literally thousands of fans who follow this sport all around the US, and I would have to tell you, there’s nothing else like it! Formula Drift has all of the elements that appeal to a modern crowd, injecting new life and attitude into the American Motorsport scene.
