Sonoma Drift 2013 Round One

04 Mar, 2013

Sonoma Drift, which will run in conjunction with the weekly Wednesday Night Drags program, will provide a safe, legal and controlled environment in which professionals and amateurs can hone their drifting skills. Drifting is a high-skill motor sport that calls for drivers to control a high-horsepower car while it slides sideways at high speed through a marked course. Drivers are judged on execution and style rather than who finishes the course fastest.

Each week, racers will compete on a specially-created course in the Raceway paddock area. Entries are expected to range from 600-horsepower Nissan 350zs to American-made muscle cars. All cars must pass a simple technical inspection before drifting competition begins at 4:30 p.m.

“This program has terrific potential. We have a very active and enthusiastic drifting community in the Bay Area, and the raceway is the perfect place to offer this sport in a safe environment for both participants and spectators,” said Steve Page, President and General Manager of the raceway.
