Born in the shipping yards and mountain passes of Japan, drifting has gained popularity over the last 20+ years and has evolved into a full blown sport not only in Japan but America as well. Pro series events like Formula Drift and amateur level events abound (i.e. Midwest Drift Union) all across the country.
We’re glad to announce another Drift Challenge for the LS Fest schedule that will allow drivers to once again showcase their talent and compete for a $1,500 purse and great publicity! Second and third place gift certificates for Holley brand products will be given in $750 and $375 product certificates.
This event consists of skilled drivers and their vehicles competing in tandem competition around a predetermined course to decide a winner. Drivers are evaluated by a panel of three judges that decide who advances to the next round based on three criteria: line, angle, and overall style.
It doesn’t matter what make and model the vehicle is as long as it’s powered by an LS engine. If you are interested in putting yourself up for selection in this invitation only event please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org containing the following information: your name, address, phone number and car year, make, model. Send photos of your vehicle’s exterior and engine compartment. Then tell us (in 200 words or less) why you should be chosen for the challenge, and what professional skills/qualifications you have that will help you compete. Better hurry, as we’re only accepting a select amount.
Deadline for entries is April 1st, 2017, so get those fingers typin’!
