Shah Alam, 27 May, 2010 – Goodyear Malaysia today announced that it will be organizing the country’s first International Drift Series. Goodyear’s ongoing commitment to raising and nurturing talent within the drift community was first established back in December 2007 through the Goodyear Speedfest in Bukit Jalil. A highpoint for Goodyear as it marked their return into the world of motorsports in Malaysia.

Local as well as some international drifters will be making their way to this action packed event, set to kick off on June 12 and 13 at Precinct 3, Putrajaya. Spectators can expect a high-octane experience as participants take to the course two-at-at-time, often only inches apart featuring nail-biting power slides along a series of tight corners as powerful engines roar and tires slide with skilled precision.

“Following the success of our sponsorship with the Formula Drift ASIA Series in 2008 and 2009, Goodyear is proud to embark on further developing drift in the region by organizing its very own international drift series in both Malaysia and Thailand for drifters who aspire to move into the professional ranks of the Formula Drift Pro series.
