Cornelius, NC (May 16, 2012)- After a long Winter break, Doug Van Den Brink and his D’Vanz Motorsports team got their 2012 drifting season off to a good start at the first Formula Drift Pro-Am event in Georgia on May 11th. The event marked the biggest East coast event on the Formula Drift schedule with attendance figures well over 10,000 strong.
The Pro-Am field of 32-drivers took to the Road Atlanta course with a level of uncertainty, as the 2012 version of the track would be run in a slightly different direction than in previous years. The drivers would come down the starting hill the same way as before but instead of turning into “the P” at the first opportunity and going through the top portion in a counter-clockwise fashion, they would go all the way to the top of the track and going around the upper loop in a clockwise direction.
So here’s the XDC Calander as we know it today. We do expect one-or-two small changes to happen over the next week or so but this is pretty close and we’ll update it as we learn more. Hopefully everyone will be able to make it out to at least one of them as your support always means a lot to us.
