Sunday, December 22, 2013 New Orleans, Louisiana a.k.a “the Big Easy”; however, drifting is not quite that easy. If you find yourself in the New Orleans area, Nola Motorsports Park is definitely the place to elevate your drifting skills. The 600+ acre compound features an 8 acre skid/autocross pad, two international standard race tracks, world class kart facility and a ton more. If you become bored here, you are not living life to its full potential.

“Since 2003, we were just a bunch of good friends and fellow enthusiasts who came together to start drifting. Most of us met because we owned a Nissan 240sx. Fresh out of high school/college, obsessed and overly excited being exposed to option/drift tengoku vids, superstreet/import tuner mags, car forum/local meets, and being hooked on initial d anime; we were just a bunch of kids trying to have fun drifting. Being introduced to fictional drifting led us to seek events that provided the real thing. Our experience and countless attendance at drift events are very thorough and ranges from pro level Formula D, Pro-Am Qualifiers, to grass-roots events. We are New Orleans based and have traveled to TX, AL, MISS, TN, GA, and FL for many events in the past and look forward to attending future events in areas new to us!
As of today, we host drift events in Southeast LA and provide a safe, fun learning environment for drivers of all levels.”
