Formula D Pro-AM program revealed


Posted on by

The American drifting championship, Formula DRIFT , through their Pro-Am system, has been offering amateur drifters the opportunity to ride along side the big boys over the past three years with a program similar to D1 Underground.

Taking the program to a new level, Formula D has teamed up with the most experienced regional, grassroots and amateur organizations across the U.S. in search of the future stars of the sport. Taking place during Formula D competition weekends or Hot Import Nights, together with partners like Drift Mania and Just Drift, amateur drifters will have the opportunity to rise up the ranks of Formula D.

Licenses will be automatically awarded to winners of the regional amateur events. These licensed drifters will then have the chance to qualify for the Pro-Am Nationals held near the end of the Formula D season. Drifters Justin Pawlak, “Wild” Bill Sherman, John Russakoff and Joon Maeng are just a few of the Formula DRIFT regulars that rose up through the Pro-Am circuit.
