Formula DRIFT Returns to Road Atlanta Home of the Inaugural Formula DRIFT Event Back in 2004
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 Panoz Motorsports and hosts many events throughout the year including Formula DRIFT.
Utilizing Turns 9, 10A, and 10B of the road course, cars slide sideways through the turns and then hit the loop before the Suzuki bridge and back towards Turns 10B, 10A, and then ends dramatically by drifting uphill on an incline.
Round 2: Proving Ground at Road Atlanta will be on of the most anticipated events of the season. The event will be spread between 2 days of drifting action and new for 2009 a Top 32 head-to-head competition format. 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.
This morning FOX 5 morning news came to Road Atlanta to showcase what the event will be all about this weekend. Drivers Samuel Hubinette, Rhys Millen, Daijiro Yoshihara, and Ryan Tuerck were highlighted and they gave the camera some great drifting footage. The reporter jumped into the Nuformz / Mopar Dodge Viper with Sam behind the wheel and received the ride of a lifetime. The news video will be posted soon.
Here is a Formula DRIFT premiere video of the Rockstar / Scion Racing Scion TC and 2-time Formula DRIFT champion Tanner Foust during today’s testing at Round 2: Proving Ground at Road Atlanta. Tanner looks to repeat his podium finish with his new vehicle at this weekend’s event.
