This is it guys. The title fight for the 2012 Lateral Drift Championship will go down to the wire at Round 6 this December 8 at the Clark Expo Grounds in Pampanga.
 
After the melee at Round 5's night drift, Alex Perez of Team Yellowcab bumps up to the championship ladder and now leads 17 points ahead of closest rival and 2011 Champion, Audel Sison from Autocraft Drift. Meanwhile, Boodie Dabasol from Team Turbo Cafe still has a shot in third place, but a 51 point deficit from Perez would be hard to claw up.
 
Last time the series visited Clark Expo was back in September for Round 2 in this year's championship. It was Dabasol who took the win then with Sison coming in a close second, while Perez's car problems pushed him out of the Top 4. So who will in the championship in 2012? Will it be a 6th title for Perez, a 2nd title for Sison, or a 1st time for Boodie.

Now on its half-way-point, the 2012 Lateral Drift Championship is shaping up to be one of the most highly-contested seasons in its history. With only 72 points separating the top four pro drivers in the title race, catch the high-flying sideways action as they head to Round 4 this Saturday, September 29 at the shoe capital of the Philippines in Marikina City.
 
This is not the series' first time to visit the venue. It hosted the last two rounds of last year's championship, where Audel Sison of Team Autocraft Drift clinched the title. Situated right behind the Marikina Sports Complex in Parang, Marikina, every last inch was packed with spectators in 2011 as they all enjoyed the new adrenaline-pumping sport of drifting. So, to make the show even better, the City of Marikina offered a bigger venue in front of the City Hall this year that will not only allow for a bigger track, but also accommodate even more spectators.

After an action-packed Round 1 saw reigning champion Audel Sison defend his title, the 2012 Lateral Drift Championship is shaping up for an even more exciting Round 2. But instead of just burning rubber, they're out to prove that drifters too have a heart, on August 18, 2012 at the Clark Expo open parking grounds
 
Dubbed as “Drift for a Cause”, Round 2 will be a fund raising event for the benefit of our countrymen in Pampanga, who were affected by the non-stop rain between August 6 to 8, 2012 that flooded most of Central Luzon. 
 
Organized by the Lateral Drift Production and Creator Studio, this leg will be held in conjunction with a Car Show and Sound Off. Entry fee for the Car Show and Sound Off is P1,500/car. And exclusive for this round, they'll be offering Drift Rides at P250/person and even Drift Lessons for those who want to get a grip on drifting. There'll also be an on-site Carwash for a fee. All the proceeds gathered from this event will be donated to flood relief operation in Pampanga.
