Formula Drift 1Formula DRIFT will make its Erie-region debut in July 2021 as part of its 2021 Pro Championship Schedule. 

Formula DRIFT PRO Round 4: BORDERLANDS will take place at Lake Erie Speedway July 9-10. Tickets are on sale now. Admission is open to all ages, and free for children under 5. COVID-19 protocols will be enforced at the event, and face coverings will be required. 


Formula DRIFT is recognized as the leading international drifting championship. Established on the streets of Japan, drifting has evolved into a worldwide competitive sport that challenges the driver’s skill while demanding a great deal from their vehicle in terms of power and strength. Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, with loss of traction, while maintaining control. Each run in a Formula DRIFT event is judged on three criteria: Line, Angle and Style. To learn more about drifting, click here.
