Formula DRIFT Announces 2011 ProAm Affiliate Series Partners;
ProAm All-Star Invitational to Highlight the Best Up and Coming Drifters

Long Beach, Calif. – February 17, 2011 – Formula DRIFT has announced the official 2011 ProAm Affiliate Series partners. The best up and coming drivers will compete in the new Formula DRIFT ProAm All-Star Invitational at the end of the season at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale.

“Formula DRIFT continues to work with grassroots and regional drifting programs to progress the sport,” said Jim Liaw, president and co-founder of Formula DRIFT. “Formula DRIFT and its ProAm partners continue to bridge the gap between regional drivers and the touring professional driver. These regional programs serve to help a driver and team gain the experience of competing on a professional stage where they understand the rigors of a multi-round competition, how to budget properly, and learn what it takes to be a professional driver & team.”

Formula DRIFT introduces the “ProAm All-Star Invitational,” which will invite all newly licensed Formula DRIFT ProAm drivers to compete against one another to determine who is the best amateur drifter in the country. The event will be held at the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale in conjunction with the Formula DRIFT Championship Finale on October 7-8, 2011 and replaces the former, “Formula DRIFT ProAm Nationals” and will not be a licensing event as in previous years. In addition, Formula DRIFT will be granting each Series within the affiliate program an increased preset number of Formula DRIFT Pro Licenses. These licenses will be awarded to their top ranking point earners at the end of their ProAm season and will include an invite to the “ProAm Cup All-Star Invitational,” during the biggest drift event of the season.
