Ryan Sage Co-Founder and Vice President of Formula Drift said "We are really ecstatic to be involved in this project with USAF and Ubiquity. The project, Drift into the Blue, showcases two of our most integral partners and the result is a huge life experience for an airmen and a Formula DRIFT driver. How can you go wrong with that?"
"United States Air Force and Formula Drift have a lot in common in doing what they do; technology, teamwork and a great deal of speed. Drift into the Blue is a truly amazing series featuring some of the brightest and most talented individuals from the USAF and the expert Formula drift drivers doing what they do best-drifting. The series features footage which immerses you into the moment and makes you feel like you are driving in the car with them", said CEO of Ubiquity Chris Carmichael.
"The Air Force needs to fill over 9,000 mechanical related jobs each year and we know drifting fans are mechanically inclined. We view our Formula Drift sponsorship as a means of connecting with the millions of fans nationwide and creating brand awareness and loyalty towards the Air Force. Formula Drift will continue to be a valuable partner for the Air Force in showcasing some of the many careers the Air Force has to offer young Americans interested in speed, power, precision and teamwork. It was a truly great experience working with Ubiquity and Formula Drift on this project. The team at Ubiquity was able to tell our story while showcasing some fun driving footage. This was a great experience for all involved and we hope the Drift fans enjoy the show while learning more about what the Air Force does every day." Devin M.
