Formula DRIFT founders Jim Liaw and Ryan Sage have been recognized by Long Beach magazine in their annual Innovative Icons issue. The Formula DRIFT office is based in Long Beach and has worked closely with the city for their events including Round 1: Streets of Long Beach, Team Drift during the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, and the Red Bull Drifting World Championship held on the Port of Long Beach. Each event has brought revenue and exposure to the city and Long Beach Magazine has recognized them for their hard work, innovation, and commitment to the city.

Formula Drift and the JTuned Auto Gallery will be making its 2nd stop of the season season at Road Atlanta on May 8th and 9th. Click on the image to go to the Auto Gallery page where you can find more information and also register for the event. Each registration comes with 2 wristbands granting admission into the event so its a great deal to come and enjoy the event/race as well as being an addition to the Auto Gallery. This year, FD has opened up the area which overlooks the vendor/pit ares. This is located between the vendor/pit area and the track.
Make sure you check back often as the Auto Gallery page will be continually updated with information for participants.
JTuned is currently looking for dedicated volunteers to help staff JTuned events for this and future events. If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
