Vegasdrift LLC proudly presents VegasProAm 2011 – Formula Drift’s Southwest Official ProAm licensing series. VegasProAm will consist of three events at the LVMS Bullring lot and the fourth and final event will be hosted at Formula Drift round 6 on The Las Vegas Motor Speedway’s Custom built FD Course.

For the second year in a row Ernie Fixmer (Formula Drift Judge/Pro Driver), Mike Bolanos (“Exotics Racing” instructor and FD license holder), and Tommy Suell (Formula Drift Driver and “Exotics Racing” Instructor) will utilize the Formula Drift standard scoring system judging  “Speed” “Line” and “Angle.”

The competition format consists of 3 judged qualifying runs, followed by either a “Top 8” or “Top 16” tandem battle.   Drivers that finish  “Top 3″ in the series will earn a 2012 Formula Drift Professional License, and an invite to the “ProAm Cup All-Star Invitational.”   This year, Formula Drift introduces the “ProAm All-Star Invitational,” in which all newly FD licensed ProAm drivers will have a chance to compete against one another to determine who is the “Best Amateur Drifter” in the country. The event will be held at the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, California in conjunction with the Formula DRIFT Championship Finale on October 7-8, 2011 and replaces the former, “Formula DRIFT ProAm Nationals.”
