Formula Drift will be providing the following awards to the following championship placeholders:
1st place = Pro License to drift in the Formula Drift Pro series in 2011
2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th = Qualification to compete in Formula Drift’s Pro Am Nationals where the top drivers receive professional licenses.
ALSO there will be one wildcard pro-am nationals qualification given away at the end of the season.
That being said, here’s the info on the next round of competition!
4/13/10 – ThunderDrift’s Round 2 – Escape from Guantanamo Bay will take place at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA (5250 HWY162, Willows, 95988)
Drivers will face off in a top16 tandem battle for ultimate victory!
SCHEDULE *look at this closely, it’s not the same as last time*
7:00AM – Gates Open
8:30AM – MANDATORY Drivers Meeting
9:00AM – Practice begins
11:15AM – Qualifying Runs Begin
NOON – Lunch
1:00PM – Competition Begins
After the competition ends, we’ll hold a brief awards ceremony, and then if time permits we will be doing fun runs.
With this new schedule, the event should be more streamlined and have less down-time while the judges are calculating the tandem brackets etc. Also, it will give the drivers a chance to talk with judges during the lunch hour.
Here’s how the scoring system works.
Top 16 Qualifiers will be awarded points for qual spot as follows:
1st = 8pts, 2nd = 7pts, 3rd = 6pts, 4th = 5pts, 5th & 6th = 4pts, 7th & 8th = 3pts, 9th – 11th = 2pts, 12th – 16th = 1pt
Top 5 finishers will be awarded points as follows:
1st = 100pts, 2nd = 95pts, 3rd = 90pts, 4th = 85pts, 5th = 80pts
All other competitors will receive 50 points for participating.
NOS Energy drinks will be there, and we’re working out the DJ/Girls situation right now.
As members of the Mishimoto Loves Drifting program, we will be extending the MLD program to all event participants (skidpad, fulltrack, & comp). Check out the Forms/Tech page on Thunderdrift.com to download the validation form!
E-Brakes.com will be sponsoring the pizza/beer party the night before the event, and giving discounts on brake products!
Other sponsor/prize info will be added soon!
Registration will close on 4/11/10 at 11:59PM!
