THE FAST AND THE FURRYOUS:
What’s better than drifting? Not much else other than furry animals like dogs and cats! Which is why we are throwing an event that caters to all 3. We’re hosting this event the day after Formula DRIFT Road Atlanta to raise money for an animal shelter (currently being determined) in the Atlanta Metro Area in an effort to help out any local dogs and cats in need.
Admission tickets for spectators may be purchased in advance online for $15 or at the front gate for $20 on the day of the event. Kids 12 and under are free with a paid adult admission. Parking is free.
A portion of the money generated from all of the ride-alongs will be donated to a local animal shelter (currently being determined) in the Atlanta Metro Area. Passengers must be 18 years of age or older and bring a valid state or government issued photo ID. Attire for ride-alongs must be long pants and closed toed shoes (no sandals, flip flops, or similar footwear is permitted). If you have your own helmet, you are welcome to wear it provided it is rated Snell M2010 or newer. If you do not have a helmet, we will have a limited number of loaner helmets available onsite for you to use. You may purchase your ride-along wristband at the information booth located at the event. There will be two types of ride-along options; ‘Regular’ and ‘Pro’:
- ‘Regular’ ride-alongs are designed more for friends, family, and crew by allowing them to be able to ride with drivers they are aquainted with. Passengers will need to verify with the driver(s) they are planning to ride with*. ‘Regular’ wristbands will be available at this event for $25 and are valid for the entirety of the event (multi-use). *NOTE: Please ensure you have verified with a driver in advance that they are willing to allow you as a passenger. Purchase of a ‘regular’ ride-along pass does not guarantee a ride-along, and as such, no refunds will be given.
- ‘Pro’ ride-alongs are designed for anyone that would like to go for a ride with a Formula DRIFT professional driver. ‘Pro’ ride-alongs are $60/each and only valid one-time. NOTE: Due to the nature of the event and to ensure we stay on schedule and give rides to everyone who signs up, we will try our best, however we can not guarantee which professional driver you will receive a ride from. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but assure you that all drivers are professionals, equally talented, and that you will have the utmost fun in any of their vehicles.
