Sonoma Drift Info:
Wednesdays at the Raceway 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 Raceway 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 the raceway.
NEW FOR 2013!
On select Wednesday nights we will open up the Summer Jam layout for FOUR hours for those with a 4pt roll cage - $60
This will run separate from the normal skid pad which will still run with the 45 driver max!
