JEFFERSON, GA - On May 12th, Streetwise Drift will be hosting Rd 1 of its East Coast Formula Drift Pro AM Championship Drifting Competitions at Gresham Motorsports Park in Jefferson, GA.
A packed field of 38 Pro AM Drifting Competitors from all over the East Coast as well as the Caribbean will be descending on Gresham Motorsports Park to do battle on the banked oval and infield track course .
Since 2010 Streewise Drift has run their Rd 1 Pro AM events along side the Formula Drift Pro Competitions at Road Atlanta. Road Atlanta is considered to be hallowed ground for drifting on the east coast. The growth of SWD's driver ranks and the limited amount of space and time allotted for Pro AM activities at the Formula Drift events resulted in a necessary venue change to better serve the Pro AM drivers.
"With the improvements made to the GMP facility over the last few years including new pavement, updated grandstand viewing , media facilities and track side parking, Gresham Motorpsports Park was a natural and easy choice for us to make as a change of venue for Rd 1." SWD Founder, Brian Phillips
This event will have a lot to offer spectators and fans too. The constant high impact action of drifting will obviously be the main focus of the event . There will also be a vendor row, food vending, open pit access for fans to meet the teams and a Show and Shine VIP Car Corral for local automotive car clubs and individuals to come in and show off their rides.
Tickets are 15.00 for General Admission - + 5.00 to Park in the VIP Car Corral Show and Shine.
Many new sponsors and supporters have stepped up in 2013 to support the series' growth and reward the drivers for their success at the track. Both cash and valuable contingency packages will be up for grabs for the top performers , qualifiers and podium winners.
