New for 2013, Sonoma Raceway has introduced the Sonoma Drift Series, featuring drifting on the world-famous Sonoma Valley road course. The series will host four, two-day drifting events throughout the summer including a series championship final in August (complete schedule below).

The Sonoma Drift Series expands upon the weekly Sonoma Drift program, which enters its third year at Sonoma Raceway and runs most Wednesday nights on the skid pad in the paddock behind the main grandstand. Drivers are judged on execution and style rather than who finishes the course fastest. Entries have included everything from Nissans to American-made muscle cars.

Each car that participates in the Sonoma Drift Series must have a 4pt roll cage and pass a one–time technical inspection through CorteX Racing. Please contact Trent Musser at (707) 655-2909 to set up your inspection.

Advanced registrations is $170 for drifters and includes entry in the two-day competition. Cost for spectators is $15 per day (children 12 and under are admitted FREE and parking is FREE). For more information, visit racesonoma.com/sonomadrift or call Brook at (707) 933-3957, bshaw@racesonoma.com.
