Formula DRIFT Slides into Sin City

The world famous Las Vegas Motor Speedway plays host to Formula DRIFT. The “Diamond in the Desert” is just outside the Vegas Strip and has hosted events such as NASCAR, IndyCar, NHRA and more recently Formula DRIFT.

The custom built course is one of the fastest, if not the fastest, drifting circuits in the world. With a very high-speed triple entry, drivers are pushed to put their fears behind them and risk it all when entering the first turn. Fans will not be disappointed with each grandstand seat having a great view of all the action.

Schedule of Events – all times are PDT (GMT -8hrs) unless stated
