Formula Drift at Texas Motor Speedway – August 21-22, 2015

It was supposed to be dull. It was supposed to be a flat plane of non-excitement all the way to Round 7. A champion was supposed to be crowned, money was supposed to overcome passion and drive. What really happened, however, was nothing of the sort unless you wear a tin foil hat.

Formula Drift at Seattle: A Pro and Pro2 Review – July 24-25, 2015

We’re taking a different approach for Pro and Pro2 coverage for Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington. Seattle marked just past halfway for both categories, with this being Round 5 of Pro, and Round 2 of Pro2.

While the second tier drivers qualified in the dry, Mother Nature had other plans and would test the skills of newcomers and veterans alike. It would also be the first test of a brand new track for the Formula Drift Championships.
