Organisers ESPN STAR Sports (ESS) and DriftPac announced the event’s return on Thursday.
Spectators can expect a hair-raising experience as finalists burn up the course two-at-a-time, often only inches apart, featuring aggressive side-by-side action, nail-biting power slides and spectacular speed along a series of tight corners as powerful engines roar while tires bellow smoke.
The event has become a sporting calendar highlight, attracting regional interest and talent, as well as a record number of 45 drivers hailing from Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Japan and New Zealand.
Japanese Champion and Top Formula DRIFT USA Pro Ryuji Miki will also be in town to add to the competitive edge of the drivers.
Having secured second placing in the Thailand and Las Vegas editions of Formula Drift, Miki will be a top contender for the title here.
Said an excited Miki, “Formula Drift Singapore 2010 will be my first race of the season, and I am very excited to return to Singapore to battle against some of the region’s most promising and talented drifters.”
“I have fond memories competing in the country, having clinched the Formula Drift Singapore title in 2008.”
