Formula DRIFT is very pleased to announce its revised 2020 competition schedule, which kicks off with a bang at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta on July 3-4. Not only is it Independence Day weekend but the very first official FD event was held at the same track in 2004, making it an appropriate starting point under these extraordinary circumstances. The new schedule represents the best chance of completing an eight-round Formula DRIFT Championship based on venue availability. The new schedule represents the best chance of completing an eight-round Formula DRIFT Championship based on venue availability. Additional consideration was given to the European and Asian teams who wish to compete in 2020, and this should allow them to join the series.The majority of tracks remain part of the 2020 schedule, although several dates have been changed to accommodate the events into a compressed timeline. Unfortunately, Long Beach, CA and Orlando, FL have been lost but new events have been created at Irwindale Speedway and Texas Motor Speedway.
“Our venue partners have been incredibly flexible under these very challenging circumstances,” said Jim Liaw, President of Formula DRIFT. “Irwindale has given us a second date, and we plan to radically change the course layout to create something really special for the first event there in August. Additionally, Texas Motor Speedway opened a date for us and we’re excited to return to Texas to see all the fans again!
