Some Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need a SFI racing suit?
A:  NO, not for the first 3 Bullring lot events, but a 2 layer SFI Race  Suit is encouraged. For the final event at Formula Drift Rd 6 Las Vegas a  SFI spec 3/2A-5 suit or SFI 3.2A/1 rated suit + SFI 3.3 Nomex Underwear  will be required as gears/speeds increase.

Q: Will there be on-site tire changing?
A: Yes

Q: I do not have a cage  will i be able to participate?
A:  Yes – you will be able to practice in a “Non-Caged” Practice Run Group  (no tandem) and have the opportunity to earn points from Qualifying, but  you will not be able to move forward in the competition to the “Top 8”  or “Top 16” You will have to pass a normal “Vegasdrift Practice Event  Tech inspection” the tech sheet can be found Here

A:  Yes – however if you earn your license or are awarded an invitation to  ProAm Nationals your car has to meet all of the tech requirements in the  Formula Drift ProAm

A: You will only need one “Bucket” Seat and one certified harness

Q: Do i need a full fire suppression system?
A:  We require one 2lbs extinguisher mounted securely with a quick release,  within an arms distance, while the driver is seated. Once again if you  move on to Nationals your car must be fully compliant with the Formula  Drift ProAm Rulebook.

Q: Does my Battery need to be relocated to the Trunk, or inside the car?
A: No. But for tandem we do require a cut off switch that will shut the car down.
