I wouldn't go as a driver, I have a grand total of zero practice at drifting, but I might see if I can bum a ride-along or two to see what the madness is all about.
Will they have the new sections of asphalt in by then? I would not want to go off that edge trying to drift.

I know I would not do anyways, I have zero skills in this...but it would be cool to watch.

I've only been to one drift event. Even though I had no idea what I was doing I had fun! After a few laps and a few 360s and 180s I did get a few decent drifts in. I've been practicing here and there in empty parking lots and have managed to get some more decent drifts. It is hard, but very fun!!! The stock tires are my drifting tires, they slide pretty good, and I have 2 sets to tear up! lol

The horizontal look the best, in my opinion.
