Round 2 of the Goodyear International Drift Series happens tomorrow (1 August) at the Melaka International Motorsport Circuit (MIMC), which is adjacent to the Ayer Keroh highway exit. Tickets can be purchased on-site and are priced at RM20 for grandstand and RM5 for walkabout passes. Gates are open to the public at 11:30 am when qualifying for the top-16 tandem duels start.
Round 1 of Goodyear IDS took place in Putrajaya last month, where Kiwi drifter Daniel Woolhouse a.k.a Fanga Dan prevailed in the final duel with Malaysia’s Ivan Lau. Fanga Dan and his Holden Commodore should be back, and he will be joined by Team Goodyear Malaysia drifters Michael Gan, Hanizam bin Hamzah, Ariff Johanis and Azrina Jane Abdullah, as well as top local and regional drifters.
Sanctioned by Formula Drift Pro Am, Goodyear IDS is a three-round Malaysian series that’s organised according to Formula Drift standards. By standards, we mean the track layout, rules, judging (Formula Drift USA judge Andy Yen was here to oversee Rd.1) and safety levels – cars that did not meet the strict technical inspection were turned away.
