KMS Drift has 2 Competition Classes - Street (STR) and Professional (PRO).

KMS Drift classes each driver on overall skills and vehicle set up. Street Drivers gain the skills to move on to the PRO class. KMS Drift advances drivers to the next class above as the driver demonstrate the skills and control needed to compete with the more advance drivers.
