Formula Drift Bans All Media from Drivers Meetings in 2014

sstp_1101_21_o+formula_drift+logoFormula Drift just announced in its hard card mailer that all media is banned from drivers meetings for the 2014 season. While I agree that too many people are in a drivers meeting it seems odd to ban media and not all the other non essential people inside the meeting. The closed door meetings seem a little silly and they could allow select media or media partners but it is what it is. Hopefully they are kind enough to have a media meeting to explain judging criteria and event changes or the birth of miscommunication and reporting will be on the incline for 2014. Here is what the official PR says:

 

*NEW RULES / NOTES*
Effective immediately and for all remaining rounds of competition for 2014, NO MEDIA WILL BE ALLOWED IN THE DRIVERS’ MEETING.
Following the podium ceremony at select events (TBD) we will plan to conduct a press conference with the round winners (1st to 3rd). Please feel free to stick around and ask questions directly to the drivers at this time.

A red stripe down the left side signifies they are running in the Formula Drift Pro series which is the same series you have watched for the last 10 years. Two blue stripes on the right side signifies that a driver only is running the Pro 2 series.
