View Full Version : TD Pro-Am Round 2 - Escape from Guantanamo Bay

03-23-2010, 12:32 PM


Formula Drift will be providing the following awards to the following championship placeholders:

1st place = Pro License to drift in the Formula Drift Pro series in 2011

2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th = Qualification to compete in Formula Drift's Pro Am Nationals where the top drivers receive professional licenses.

ALSO there will be one wildcard pro-am nationals qualification given away at the end of the season.

That being said, here's the info on the next round of competition!

4/13/10 - ThunderDrift's Round 2 - Escape from Guantanamo Bay will take place at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA (5250 HWY162, Willows, 95988)

Drivers will face off in a top16 tandem battle for ultimate victory!

SCHEDULE *look at this closely, it's not the same as last time*

7:00AM - Gates Open
8:30AM - MANDATORY Drivers Meeting
9:00AM - Practice begins
11:15AM - Qualifying Runs Begin
NOON - Lunch
1:00PM - Competition Begins

After the competition ends, we'll hold a brief awards ceremony, and then if time permits we will be doing fun runs.

With this new schedule, the event should be more streamlined and have less down-time while the judges are calculating the tandem brackets etc. Also, it will give the drivers a chance to talk with judges during the lunch hour.

Here's how the scoring system works.

Top 16 Qualifiers will be awarded points for qual spot as follows (position on top, score below)

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16
8,7,6,5,4,4,3,3,2, 2, 2, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1

Top 5 finishers will be awarded points as follows (same format as above)

1 2 3 4 5
100, 95, 90, 85, 80

All other competitors will receive 50 points for participating.

NOS Energy drinks will be there, and we're working out the DJ/Girls situation right now.

As members of the Mishimoto Loves Drifting program, we will be extending the MLD program to all event participants (skidpad, fulltrack, & comp). Check out the Forms/Tech page on Thunderdrift.com to download the validation form!

E-Brakes.com will be sponsoring the pizza/beer party the night before the event, and giving discounts on brake products!

Other sponsor/prize info will be added soon!
