Formula DRIFT Round 3: The Gauntlet Moves to Englishtown Raceway;
Event will be Held on Original Date of June 14, 2008
LONG BEACH, Calif. – April 28, 2008 – Formula DRIFT Round 3: The Gauntlet has been relocated to New Jersey’s Englishtown Raceway in Englishtown on June 14, 2008. The change of venue is due to the previously announced closing of Wall Township Speedway.
The closure of Wall Speedway only impacts the location for Formula DRIFT Round 3: The Gauntlet. The event will be held on its originally scheduled date of June 14. Englishtown Raceway’s 1.35-mile Road Course will provide the backdrop for the drifting track and will offer drivers and fans a unique course that will host its first major drifting competition.
“The selection of Englishtown not only provides an ideal location for the world’s top drifters to compete, but brings a major championship to this historic raceway,” said Jim Liaw, president and co-founder of Formula DRIFT. “By moving the event to Englishtown, we were able to keep our original schedule and we are confident fans will experience a very entertaining event.”
Ticket prices start at $25 and Formula DRIFT will also be offering reserved seating. Reserved seating will save a purchased seat for the entire event so fans will not have to worry about losing their seat. General admission and reserved seating tickets can be purchased online at www.formuladrift.com.
The Wall in New Jersey has been talking about closing, and not holding any more events since earlier in the year. This answers the question of the event location.
