By Bonnie Morét
The driving “wows” me and the energy excites me … my name is Bonnie Morét and I LOVE DRIFTING!
Formula Drift, Inc. was co-founded by Jim Liaw and Ryan Sage in 2003. With 60 plus licensed drivers competing, Formula Drift is recognized as the premier North American professional drifting championship series. The series consists of a seven round championship played out at race tracks across the United States. Judged on execution and style rather than who finishes the course in the fastest time, Formula Drift joins traditional racing and extreme sports.
From energy drinks to the military, Formula Drift works closely with a variety of endemic and non-endemic business partners. Most notably Formula Drift works with the largest amount of tire suppliers to a single series. Achilles, Falken, Hankook, Maxxis, Kenda, Nitto, GT Radial, and Yokohama all work together to supply teams and develop test their products.
Below are highlights from Round 2 at Road Atlanta on May 9 – May 10.
