It’s all change for Round 4 in New Jersey, which moves from Wall Speedway to its new location at the legendary Englishtown Raceway Park. Unfortunately, the series had outgrown the seating and paddock capacity at Wall, necessitating the move.
To accommodate Formula DRIFT, Englishtown will convert its famous NHRA drag strip into a floodlit drift arena, reflecting an unprecedented commitment by the track owner to the sport of drifting. Not only will this create an incredible showcase for FD, it will also provide considerably more paddock space for the teams and more than double the seating capacity. The new drift arena will be constructed between the drag strip grandstands, incorporating the drag tower and tunnel as part of the course, creating a wonderful, illuminated spectacle for the live audience and livestream viewers.
The next big change is Round 7, which will see the Texas event replaced by a move to the Sonoma Raceway in Northern California. This has been done in the spirit of returning the sport to a market that was once popular. The local area has also seen a significant increase in both the popularity of the sport and its population since FD last competed at the venue. For 2020, the teams will utilize a different section of the Raceway than was originally used by FD. After signing a multi-year deal, the switch to Sonoma Raceway will bring a number of benefits, including double the seating capacity of what FD was able to build at Texas Motor Speedway.
