Coming Soon: Formula Drift Singapore '10

Formula Drift Singapore 2010 will be happening next month on 24 and 25 April 2010 at the F1 Pit Building!

No more long drives to Changi Exhibition Centre like the two previous events, the action is now right smack in the middle of town. More importantly, having the event on the Singapore GP track is symbolic of drifting's ascendancy as a respected motorsports in Singapore and the region.

The cars will accelerate down the main straight, then smoke their tyres through turns 1 to 3 - a great spectacle for the 8,000 fans expected to show up.

45 drivers from Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Japan and New Zealand will compete. The only celebrity driver confirmed so far is Ryuji Miki (according to the media release), though I think its pretty likely the other top competitors Mad Mike, Kiki and Djan will show up as well.
