Sonoma Drift:

Sonoma Drift runs in conjunction with the weekly Wednesday Night Drags program, providing a safe, legal and controlled environment in which professionals and amateurs can perfect their drifting skills. Drifting is a high-skill motor sport that calls for drivers to control a high-horsepower car while it slides sideways at high speeds through a marked course. This is a sport where drivers are judged on style and execution rather than who finishes with the fastest time.

Each week, racers will drift on a specially-designed course in the Sonoma Raceway paddock area. Entries can range anywhere from the style and curves of a Nissan 350z to the pure power of American-made muscle cars. All cars must pass a simple technical inspection before drifting begins at 4 p.m.

PURCHASE DRIFT ENTRY HERESpectators are not permitted at this time.
