Over the weekend, Formula DRIFT took to the streets of Long Beach, Calif. to kick-start the first round of their annual Pro Championship chase.
This year’s sold-out event was one for the record books, garnering over 20,000 drifting fans in attendance and over 1 million views on Dailymotion’s Driftstream. The two day event featured competitions on three major drifting turns taken from the renowned Toyota Grand Prix track, a Slammed Society Car Show, driver autograph session, and giveaways from sponsors.
The 2014 Formula DRIFT season continues with Round 2: Road to the Championship on May 9-10 at Road Atlanta. Visit the official Formula Drift website for more info.
“It feels amazing to be on top of the podium, especially here at the first round of the eleventh season of Formula DRIFT,” said Chris Forsberg, winner of Round 1: Streets of Long Beach. “We will try to keep the momentum with our new changes and take the championship home.”
