Thursday night October 1, Irwindale’s own Formula DRIFT open practice sessions will resume on the course that the entire civilized world now knows as the legendary “House of Drift” … aka: Irwindale Speedway right at the top of the 605 freeway.
2015’s action-packed Thursday night under-the-lights practices will be held monthly with events now set for:
- October 1
- November 12
- December 10
Each of the Thursday night sessions will start with a (public invited) technical inspection for the competition vehicles at 3PM and drift practice will run flat out from 4 to 8PM. The fan gates open at 4PM and there’s plenty of close-free parking.
Open to the public (fans can watch from the stands and visit the pits as well) admission is only $10 per person. These will be nights when fans can see some of the best of the best getting tuned-up for the 2015 season as well as catching the acts of some of new, upcoming Drift talent as they test their driving skills and machines against the established pros.
Anyone can run their properly-equipped* car for $75 and they can register right at the track on Thursday night.
Through my years as a Speedhunter I’ve been through a lot of topics and discussions with you lot.
We’ve gone through the ups and downs of drifting, car setup, judging, ice racing, die-hard competition, Gatebil fun times and everything in between. It’s been a great journey and I’ve been lucky to have been able to share it with you.
