So I don't normal do this kind of stuff here on racefriv, but this effects all of the racefriv community so I thought it needed to be posted. A local group condo owners have somehow convinced the Atlanta city council to ban drifting in Atlanta Georgia without even hearing from the many people who support this great sport. They are singling out drifting and trying to cancel any event that would be in the Atlanta region. Of course this will lead to drifters taking to the streets which is exactly what the drifting community doesn't want. So drifting is being cancelled in Atlanta and our fellow drifters are in need, what can I do? Well I'm glad you asked. First go join the facebook group here.Click on docs and email the mayor. Then go sign the petition over at change.org here. Mayor Reed can still veto the amendment, so thats the plan for now. Thanks to everyone for the help. This is a battle that we must not lose.
UPDATE: Now with video!!!!
UPDATE: Sadly the council passed the amendment today and basically killed organized drifting inside the perimeter. Drifting will never die in Atlanta though, it will continue on, we will find new places to drift and give our money to another venue. Its so sad that a small group of people can ruin a good time for 1000's of people. We will carry on, drifting isn't dead, actually its probably stronger now. Turner was awesome, but the next place will be even better.
