The FIA has finally unveiled it’s plan for the first intercontinental drifting cup in Japan. We followed some of this event progress earlier this year but they now have an official time/place for this big event. FIA President, Jean Todt, said, “This is the beginning of a very important category for the FIA. As we continue to develop motor sport around the world, drifting has a great appeal to young people and has a passionate core following which is only going to get bigger.” More information about competitors and information will be available soon. I doubt many Formula Drift drivers will be competing with this falling one week before Irwindale Speedway.
