For Immediate Release
Wednesday July 15, 2015
As Midwest Drift Union gears up for the 3rd Annual Streets of Detroit (purchase tickets) event in the lovely Roosevelt Park in Downtown Detroit, organizers announce an official date change for the 4th and final round of the series.
Due to an unforeseen scheduling conflict, Round 4 of the 2015 Midwest Drift Union Pro*Am Series will take place on the roadcourse at Gateway Motorsports Park on Sunday, October 11th (moved from the previous date of October 31st). Midwest Drift Union will be hosting its final round for the first time on a spectator friendly Sunday in the wonderful arched city of Saint Louis. Official Round 4 event schedule and news coming soon.
All Midwest Drift Union Pro Am events will have a driver’s cap of 50 drivers per event. If you do not register on time you will not be permitted to compete.
This is the second round of the Midwest Formula D Pro AM Series. All drivers will need to pass the Midwest Drift Union technical inspection and make sure to follow and read the rulebook. If you are not at the morning drivers meeting you will not be able to drive until the second half of the day, no questions asked. Everyone must execute event waiver before entering event venue.
Technical inspections will need to be done at an “authorized” Midwest Drift Union hub prior to a Pro Am round. The Midwest Drift Union staff will be double checking any drivers necessary on day of the event. If the car does not meet tech requirement you will be unable to participate the event and absolutely no refunds will be given back for violation of the technical rules. Safety is our main priority.
Formula D Pro AM Reward:
All competition drivers are expected to drive the complete Midwest Drift Union season. The season has been spread out so that every driver can make each any every event including the final round which will take place at Gateway Motorsports Park. The night of the final round an awards ceremony will take place to award the best drivers of the season. The top three placing driver(s) of the series will be rewarded with a Formula Drift Pro 2 License.
