2015 Formula Drift Thursday Night’s At Irwindale Speedway [SCHEDULE]

Scion-Irwindale-2014

Southern California just lacked drift events on a Thursday night so Formula Drift has answered that major problem with a 2015 grassroots Irwindale schedule. These events are focused more to local drivers but are open to the public if you happen to be near Irwindale Speedway. Most events do see the attendance of a few Formula Drift Pro and Pro 2 drivers as well. The April 2nd event is probably a great place to spot 2015 builds and liveries being tested just one week before Round 1 at Streets of Long Beach. Season kicks off in just nine days with its first event set to be March 12th. Drifting happens between 5:00pm – 9:00pm for each one of these scheduled dates below. Spectators pay $10.00 to enter and drifting costs just $75.00 for the whole evening.

2013 USDrift Formula Drift Pro Am Season with 5 Judges [SCHEDULE]

One of the original founders of the Pro Am series with Drift Association back in 2005 are returning to hold an Am series in the north east. The 2013 schedule is four events and kicks off this month at Englishtown with the guys over at Clubloose. The USDrift crew helped run XDC for a while but officially split ways with the sanctioning body at the beginning of 2013.

The USDrift Pro Am series will feature five judges who include Formula Drift champion Chris Forsberg, Matt Petty, Mike Schneider, Dan Summers, and Formula Drift judge Brian Eggert. Two sets of judges will watch the same criteria during qualifying and their scores will be averaged. For example, Judge 1 and 2 are line, Judge 3 and 4 are angle, and Judge 5 is style.  The idea is to eventually have 9 judges, with 3 judges for each criteria and then dropping the outlier scores (highest and lowest).  Tandem format will remain the same and still be majority rules. What do drivers think of this new judging format USDrift is bringing to the table? Below is the schedule for the 2013 season:

May 18th Round 1- Englishtown, New Jersey (Clubloose)
June 14/15th Round 2- Summit Point, West Virginia (Hyperfest)
July 26/27th Round 3- New Jersey Motorsports Park (ARCA)
August 18th Round 4- Summit Point, West Virginia (Drift Nirvana)
