2019 Formula DRIFT Pro Championship Media Applications



Welcome to the Media Application page for the 2019 Formula DRIFT season. Before you get started, we wanted to fill you in on a couple rule changes/additions/reminders for 2019.



  1. If you're shooting EDITORIAL for a recognized media outlet (not a team), please skip down to EDITORIAL ACCESS
  2. If you're shooting for a team/brand then you will need a hardcard for EACH team/driver you are shooting for.
    • The first hardcard will cost the traditional $400 (Pro) or $300 (Pro2), and subsequent hardcards are $100 (Pro) or $75 (Pro2) per team/driver.
  3. As seen in #1, Pro2 hardcard for cost for media has been reduced from $400 to $300 in consideration of the amount of Pro2 events as compared to Pro.
  4. If you are not strictly editorial, you WILL need a hardcard.
  5. Agencies (as seen below) will need to submit plans for the season in advance so Formula DRIFT may apply a licensing fee.
  6. Pro2 media will be restricted to Pro2 activities. You will not be able to shoot the main Pro competition as years past.
    • This is an effort to give Pro and editorial media the room to do their thing.
  7. Media briefings will have a strict "lock out" policy in which people who show up late will not be allowed to enter the media center.
  8. We will have XL vests available this year.
  9. We will be hosting a Media Track Walk on Friday AM of each event, immediately following the media briefing, to allow media a close-up look at where you can (and can't) shoot from.
  10. Only Formula DRIFT remote cameras will be permitted.
  11. If you are found in violation of any rule or guideline as outlined by Formula DRIFT and/or communicated in the media briefing, you will be immediately removed for the day with a review following in the evening.
