Hyundai Asia Resources recently signed with the organizers of the Lateral Drift racing series, making the Korean carmaker the title sponsor of the eighth season of the long-running drift competition.
The first two rounds of the 2013 Hyundai Lateral Drift Pro-Am Championship Series will kick off on August 31 and September 1 at the Megatent in Libis, Quezon City. Serving as guest judges for all six rounds of the series are international drift drivers (and couple) Hiromi Kajikuma and Kimihiro Obata from Japan.
One of the highlights this weekend will be a drift exhibition by Pilipinas Got Talent Season 4 finalists Gio Rodriguez and Ralph Tan on-board the 2013 Genesis Coupe.
If you'll be dropping by the venue to see the tire-smoking action, the morning practice sessions will start at 9am, with the amateur qualifying and final rounds set for 1pm followed by the professional qualifying and final rounds at 3pm.
Admission is free.
