Yes, I have for September 8, 2007 and September 9, 2006 in New Jersey. Don't you envy me jk!


Formula D is a United States' drifting series.

The series is sponsored by the popular video game series, Need for Speed. Its official name is Need for Speed Formula Drift Presented by Circuit City. It was inaugurated in 2004, and is a division of the Sports Car Club of America.

The 2007 series schedule had seven official rounds, each at a different track. These are the locations Formula D visited in 2007:

Streets of Long Beach, California (held on April 7)
Road Atlanta in Braselton, Georgia (held on May 12)
Summit Point Raceway in Summit Point, West Virginia (held on June 2)*
Evergreen Speedway near Seattle, Washington (held on July 14)
Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California (held on August 11)
Wall Speedway in Wall Township, New Jersey (held on September 8)
Irwindale Speedway in Irwindale, California (held on October 13)
The asterisk next to the Summit Point round indicates that it's a new venue.

Formula D has somewhat of a partnership with the Champ Car World Series, holding demonstration events at Champ Car race weekends, most prominently, the Long Beach Grand Prix. In 2007, there will be five demonstration events, but they will count for something. 2007 is the first year of the Formula Drift Team Drift Championship, meaning that events will count for points in a championship separate from the one used for standalone events. Here are the five events that will make up the inaugural Team Drift Championship:

Long Beach Grand Prix (April 15)
Portland International Raceway (June 10)
Grand Prix of Cleveland (June 24)
San Jose Grand Prix (July 29)
Grand Prix Arizona (November 30)
There is also a Formula D in Australia, which was announced in June 2005. The three tracks Formula D Australia visited in 2005 are Mallala Motorsport Park in South Australia, Oran Park Raceway in New South Wales, and Winton Raceway in Victoria. The series is held in conjunction with the DRIFT AUSTRALIA Championship.

The American Formula D series advertises nine tire manufacturers (Nitto Tires, Toyo Tires, Bridgestone Tires, Maxxiss Tires, Federal Tires, Falken Tires, Cooper Tires, Dunlop Tires, Hankook Tires, and Kumho Tires).

That's him, Tarzan

Has anyone else ever been to a Formula D event, or are you gonna go?
I'm not going for 2008, and maybe 2009. It all depends on my brothers. Personally, I think 2006 was better than 2007 (But my brother says 2005 was the best of all for NJ)

haha. you guys are funny! but i've seen them. not in person or anything, but at a friend's house on thanksgiving. pretty cool. just wish there weren't so many drunk idiots around. they think they know EVERYTHING about cars... bull. i asked them what seibon is widely known for, and -even though it's on the HOOD- they said engines. i don't know, after all the things they kept saying about the cars that were totally WRONG, i just cut. sooo irritated when people talk about things they just know NOTHING about.
but the formula d races are pretty sick.

I've seen it on ESPN or some other sports network. It's quite fun to watch. I wish I could watch it in person, though.

Isn't it the drifting series with Tanner Foust??? I'm 70% sure it is.....

I went to a FD event last summer. Sadly, my brother is a bitch and couldn't handle a headache, which caused me to miss the battles. I plan on joining FD if I fail as an engineer. Lol.

Drifting is, in most cases, used for showing off, but drift is by no means easy. Drifting help drivers develop and improve their car control skills. In addition, a car can potentially go faster with drifting when conditions are slippery and/or when corners are extremely sharp (i.e. hairpins).....

for Formula D it seems like it is actually who has the better show will win, but in d1gp its about the better drifter. Thats what i examined when spectating both events


LAWL "If You Ain't Outta Control, You Ain't In Control." any guess on who said this in a movie?
