Sonoma Drift

Wednesdays are about to get a little sideways, as the raceway welcomes back Sonoma Drift!

Sonoma Drift, which will run in conjunction with the weekly Wednesday Night Drags program, will provide a safe, legal and controlled environment in which professionals and amateurs can hone their drifting skills. Drifting is a high-skill motor sport that calls for drivers to control a high-horsepower car while it slides sideways at high speed through a marked course. Drivers are judged on execution and style rather than who finishes the course fastest.

Each week, racers will drift on a specially-created course in the paddock area. Entries are expected to range from 600-horsepower Nissan 350zs to American-made muscle cars. All cars must pass a simple technical inspection before drifting begins at 4:30 p.m.

“This program has terrific potential. We have a very active and enthusiastic drifting community in the Bay Area, and the raceway is the perfect place to offer this sport in a safe environment for both participants and spectators,” said Steve Page, president and general manager of Sonoma Raceway.

**If you are UNABLE to attend, make sure to call Brook by 2PM on date you are signed up for, so we can fill all 45 spots. Otherwise no refunds will be given, for un-claimed tech cards.**
