The event is open to the public with free entrance.  

Around 20 amateur drivers will prove their unique drifting skills on the track in a showcase of exciting speed and smoking tires. A panel of experts in motorsports will judge the competition and will reward points for the loudest engine, the hottest cars, the smokiest tires, and the best skill in hitting the box.
