With equally exciting off track entertainment and displays, Drift Atlanta has become the epicenter of car culture in Georgia.

The Global Time Attack represents the ultimate expression of automotive technology. This innovative racing series is quickly taking the motorsport world by storm, testing the drivers, teams and cars to their limits on a wide variety of dedicated race circuits with the singular goal of setting record lap times. We set the stage for the fastest timed laps in racing where drivers compete against the clock, allowing teams to focus solely on achieving the fastest lap times against other drivers and machines on a given circuit. Global Time Attack teams can showcase their fabrication, tuning and set-up skills in order to create the fastest car possible. Global Time Attack car classes include Unlimited, Limited, Street, and Enthusiast determined by the amount of allowable modifications and separated by drivetrain configuration All Wheel Drive, Rear Wheel Drive and Front Wheel Drive.

The F4 U.S. Championship returns to Road Atlanta during the Formula DRIFT weekend for its second event of the season with more than 30 F4 U.S. cars slated to compete. Each F4 U.S. Ligier JS F4 chassis is equipped with a production-based Honda Civic® Type R, tuned to meet FIA-mandated output of approximately 160 hp, and a set of Pirelli P Zero tires developed specifically for the series.
