The concept is simple – We want to drift everywhere, but drifting isn’t really allowed anywhere. We throw Drift Jam events at tracks and other venues where you would normally be hardpressed to find cars drifting. Lately, we’ve been having a great time shredding Go Kart tracks – these tight and endless corners seem almost daunting at first, but are always a blast to drive. To us, that’s what drifting is all about: pushing limits while having fun. 

So this year there are two types of events: The first are events we run on Go Kart Tracks . We try to fill up as many weekends in the summer as possible with these days to give drivers as many opportunities to slide as possible. These are typically open drift days, that go by many event names, and no traditional competition aspect at all. Hard driving, however, is rewarded with parts prizes. We save the bracket style competition for road courses.

Last year was awesome. We had a sweet competition series, it was called Throwdown – If you were there, you probably had a great time. This year, we’ve decided against having any vehicle setup limitations. Yep, less rules. We’re calling it Group D . It’s going to be even better.

The main difference between an ordinary Go-Kart Track Style Drift Day and Group D is the second half of the day. During the second half of the day, Go-Kart Track days continue on as an ordinary drift days with an open track.
For Group D , the second half of the day signals the start of competition. A pool of drivers is selected through a qualifying process, and we end the day watching the top drivers of the day battle it out for a pool of sponsored prizes.
