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:


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.

2014 Formula Drift Windshield Banners Explained



Formula Drift has announced that drivers will have three various windshield banners for the 2014 season. 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.


A driver that options to run both Pro 2 and Pro will receive a dual colored/marked Formula Drift windshield banner like this one. This will help clear up any confusion with what driver you are looking at in the pits or paddock this season.
