SINGAPORE : Singapore will host its first-ever Formula Drift race in April.

However, the excitement is already building up for the sport which involves cars moving sideways.

More Singaporeans are taking to drifting as motor sports gets more mainstream here.

Ivan Lim, Drift Driver, said, "(It's about) losing control of the vehicle (while) still (being) in control, which is different from track racing, because track racing is grip driving, so you are actually just gripping the road."

The organisers said that even a beginner can learn how a drift.

The drifting clinic at the new Changi Exhibition Centre is just a sampling of the real stuff to hit Singapore in April.

Marcus Lim, Organiser, Formula Drift Singapore, said, "We have 40 drivers coming down and racing and we have about three of them from the USA. Basically what is happening is we are bringing the management crew and the judges and the track marshals from Formula Drift USA. And they are coming to Singapore to manage and run the race."

Five Singaporeans, including the three conducting the clinic, will take part in the April event - which will also see drivers from the region competing.

About 10,000 people are expected to witness the adrenalin pumping action, which is very popular in the United States. - CNA/ms

PS: looks like it'll exciting, but kinda far as it seems that the venue is same location at the Singapore Air Show :eek:

wa syc77... i dun think u need to do that. I do have genuine reasons to postpone the deal. If you do not trust me its ok. But anyway even if i do not meetup with u guys at expo u will still be able to get the tics at the door only it is $15. Anyway its ok.

So for pple who decided to get the tics from me u will save $6. Just drop me an sms. The final CONFIRMED meeting place is at expo mrt on the actual day. As for the timing i will tell u by sms.

The place will be open at 9am but i think the actual drifting will only start in the afternoon. Anyone can confirm what time will the actual drift start? Don't want to get burnt with the harmful UV.
