Professionals in the Making - ProAm Round One

Location: Evergreen Speedway

Date: April 20, 2013

The season kicks off for Formula Drift ProAm's series at Evergreen Speedway with rain, smoke, and the best drivers of the Northwest.  These series are designed for amateurs to transition to professionals and eventually move into Formula Drift's Pro Championship.  Thus, I present to you the first look at professional drivers in the making.

As things picked up the weather decided to give us some dry time.

and season veterans.

The grassroot drivers were getting silly on the 3/8ths bank.

More grassroots.

Although Formula Drift calls this class amateurs, they have more than demonstrated the skills and techniques to give the seasoned professionals a run for their money.
