Save Drifting In Atlanta!!!

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 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: Just wanted to thank everyone who has signed the petition, we are fighting the good fight, there is close to 5000 signatures on the petition at the time and over 7000 people in the group. For a movement that started 2 days ago that's damn impressive!!! The numbers on this site have even jumped a little from people googleing it, which has brought us over 30,000 views since we started racefriv a little over a year ago. FD is this weekend, has us shooting under them now which gives us the amazing opportunity to shoot the event on track this time. THANKS FittedLife! Its been a crazy week, KDF movie tommorrow night, FD Thursday and Friday, AMS drifting on Sunday for us and since this whole Turner Field thing came out where going to cut our drift day in half to go show support!!!Thats 4 strait days of drifting and I cant wait!.

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.

  1. So some tire squeal in the middle of the day is somehow worse than fireworks, drunks, traffic and rowdiness following 80+ Braves games right next to the tire squeal. Which by the way the Games don't get out until later at night.
