Ford invests in Formula Drift
Ford is helping to expand one of the most exciting motorsports there is, Formula DRIFT.
As well as competing in the sport for a ninth year running, Ford will be sponsoring the race series which is, as you can probably guess, all about going sideways.
The sport emerged out of the drifting scene in Japan and has been rapidly gaining popularity, for obvious reasons.
Forumla DRIFT is based in America and features the very best professional drifters in the world (that’s right, drifting is a job now).
Ford field two tuned up Mustang GTs, one of which took the championship in 2010 in the hands of drifter, Vaughn Gittin Jr.
Although this year’s championship has just finished you can still watch it all on You Tube and next season will all be live, online fo anyone to watch, anywhere.
Check out this little promo from Ford for a little taste of Formula DRIFT.
