Round 1 will take place in the massive lot of SGMP. This track will be one of the longest we have made in a parking lot. This track will include a very fast 3rd/4th gear entry to a tight, technical and LONG track! We will also have a skidpad setup to scrub tires and warm up.
Competition: The ExciteGP battles will take place over two days. The track will open for qualifying on Saturday with an open format. Meaning no set laps. Just drive and have fun. 16 drivers for both classes will be selected. Drivers will battle in a standard Top 16 comp to find the winner.
Open Track Drifting:
While many drivers will be fighting for a top 16 spot, that is not the primary point of ExciteGP. All drivers of all skill level are welcome to join. With the event designed around seat time, even the driver who wins the comp will only get 8 more laps over someone who did not compete at all.
Trophies & Prizes: ExciteGP will award both class winners an event round trophy and collect points for the year. The driver with the most points over all 4 rounds will receive a cash prize TBD. Just as important as the driving awards, ExciteGP will be giving trophies for best drift car styling, interior tuning, and engine bay tuning.
