Formula DRIFT is proud to announce the continued partnership with Race Ramps. Race Ramps provides products for vehicle maintenance and car services as well as for trailer loading and unloading.
“We value the support of Race Ramps for the Series,” said Kevin Well, competition director of Formula DRIFT. “Their products are the perfect solution for lowered drift cars as the products can accommodate the low clearance of the cars. Race Ramps are effective and convenient as their light weight makes it easy to transport to all of our events on the circuit.”
