BRASELTON, Ga. - Drivers from more than a dozen countries will take over Road Atlanta this weekend, competing in one of the region's most popular motorsports events.
Formula DRIFT returns to the Braselton track May 12-13 with Drift Atlanta, the second round on the Formula DRIFT Black Magic Pro Championship presented by BlackVue Dash series. Drifting is a top motorsport in Japan and has grown in popularity here in the United States, and puts drivers to test as they slide their cars sideways through turns, losing traction on the tires but still controlling the vehicle.
Road Atlanta was the site of the very first Formula DRIFT event back in 2004, and the course remains a favorite for drivers. New this year, Formula DRIFT is launching an app for fans to track all the action, with features including live scoring alerts, ticket purchasing, and exclusive content.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning at Road Atlanta, getting in on the action ahead of this year's Drift Atlanta!
