FORMULA DRIFT - MAY 31 & JUNE 1

Tuesday, May 14, 2013

Jupiter, Fla. (May 9, 2013) North America’s Professional Drifting Championship Series, Formula DRIFT, returns to Palm Beach International Raceway Mary 31 & June 1 for Round 3: Invasion. The competition will feature nearly one hundred racers drifting on the road course, sliding their cars at speeds over one hundred miles per hour for motorsports’ best example of extreme car-control driving. After last year’s sell out event, PBIR has decided to bring in additional grandstands to accompany the expected 7,500 spectators over the weekend.

The two-day competition starts on Friday and continues through Saturday evening as two levels of drifting professionals take to the track where they will be judged based on their drifting style and execution. The Formula DRIFT Series is comprised of professional drifters from throughout the world to compete in seven rounds at various racetracks and street courses. Once an underground event, now a national phenomenon, drifting has become extremely popular attracting a younger generation of motorsport fans with its freestyle nature.

Drifting is a high powered, high skilled motorsport where professional drivers intentionally maneuver their cars into executed controlled sideways sliding at high speeds through a marked course, challenging the drivers ability and control. In this racing series, engine and body modification become second to driving skill. Drivers are judged on execution and style, rather than who finishes the course in the fastest time. Drivers will drift on Palm Beach International Raceway’s road course on turns 1 and 4 in reverse, which has proved to be the most challenging course yet in the national series.

Formula DRIFT’s Round 3: Invasion will kick off Friday, May 31, where gates will open at 12:00 p.m. and for the drifting trials and qualifying. Gates will open at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 1, for the final rounds and awards ceremony. Tickets are available for advance purchase online on PBIR’s website at RACEPBIR.com.  All tickets are general admission for first-come, first-serve seating starting at $27 for Saturday admission and $30 for Full Event admission (Friday & Saturday.) The competition will run rain or shine.
