Skidpad Drifting Practice

 

These pictures were taken at the Ter-Tech & Drift 411 Formula D Pro Am Qualifier drifting races and skid pad practice held at Moroso Motorsports Park in Jupiter Florida on September 2nd 2007.

The event was sponsored by Ter-Tech, Drift411, Race Engineering and Kumho Tires. Spectators had to pay $15.00 for entry into Moroso and the drifting enthusiast drivers had to shell out $100.

Drivers could either enjoy all day drifting practice on the skidpad or the Moroso Road Course. Anyone with the necessary skills and a safety roll cage could compete in the Formula Drift Pro Am Qualifying race and earn Drift411 series points.

The 1st and 2nd place winners of this qualifying race were invited to the ProAm Nationals in Laughlin Nevada. The other 6 slots available would go to the 1st through 6th place drivers according to the Drift411 series points standing.
