THURSDAY NIGHTS GO "SLIDEWAYS" at IRWINDALE: FORMULA DRIFT PRACTICE NIGHTS ARE BACK!

Irwindale, Calif. - - They're back, they're smokin' sideways, and they're wilder than ever! Beginning Thursday night March 12, Irwindale's own Formula DRIFT open practice sessions will resume on the course that the entire civilized world now knows as the legendary "House of Drift" ... aka: Irwindale Speedway right at the top of the 605 freeway.

 

 

2015's action-packed Thursday night under-the-lights practices will be held monthly with events now set for: April 2, May 14, June 11, July 19, August 13, September 10, October 1, November 12, and December 10.

 

Each of the Thursday night sessions will start with a (public invited) technical inspection for the competition vehicles at 4PM and drift practice will run flat out from 5 to 8PM. The fan gates open at 4PM and there's plenty of close-free parking.

 

Open to the public (fans can watch from the stands and visit the pits as well) admission is only $10 per person. These will be nights when fans can see some of the best of the best getting tuned-up for the 2015 season as well as catching the acts of some of new, upcoming Drift talent as they test their driving skills and machines against the established pros.

 

Anyone can run their properly-equipped* car for $75 and they can register right at the track on Thursday night.

 

The 7-Round 2015 FORMULA Drift Championship season begins on the Street of Long Beach on April 10-11 and will conclude at Irwindale on October 10-11. Between those dates teams will compete at event in Georgia, Florida, New Jersey, Washington (state), and Texas.

 

The Irwindale FORMULA Drift "Final Fight" in October (this year on October 9-10) event annually attracts over 20,000 fans during its two-day run and has sold out the last several years running. Thursday nights at "The House" are up "close and personal" mini-versions of the excitement of the finals ... great drift entertainment at a good price.
