In April we were at the first Formula Drift event of the year, and nothing worked out the way we expected it. If you have been following Formula Drift for a while now, you know that it never, ever rains in Long Beach CA during the events. Last month, it wasn’t the case, and many drivers suffered from the weather. Rain, rain and more rain!
What to expect in Atlanta this weekend?
Road Atlanta opened in 1970 and was home of the inaugural Formula DRIFT event back in 2004. The 2.54-mile, 12-turn track is owned by NASCAR Holdings and hosts many events throughout the year including Formula DRIFT.
Round 2: Road to the Championship at Road Atlanta will be one of the most anticipated events of the season. The event will be spread between 2 days of drifting action. Drivers are tested on the fast entry and tight turns of the road course and will have to prove that they have what it takes to reach the podium.
