The Lateral Drift Championship Pro-Am Series is making the 2011 season bigger than ever. Nine rounds of adrenaline-pumping, engine-revving, tire-burning sideways action are scheduled this year to tour around drift venues at the Luneta Grandstand in Manila, Venice Piazza in McKinley Hill, Taguig, and the Clark International Speedway (CIS) in Pampanga. 

With the growing popularity of drifting worldwide, the Philippines is set to prove that our drivers, cars, and tracks are ready for the global drifting scene. This year, more drivers are expected to compete in the series with international drivers from Guam, Japan, Malaysia, and Singapore joining in the fray. And to set the bar even higher, judges from around the Asian region will be invited to judge several rounds in this year's series.
