Action-packed competitive drifting returns to Lynn’s Adrian Flux Arena to please the petrol heads on Saturday (May 9), with the first round of 2015 Driftcup.
Drifting continues to grow at an alarming rate in the UK and the national series, the British Drift Championship (BDC), has grown beyond all recognition since being introduced in 2008. Grids of 100 drivers across two classes are now the norm.
Interest from drivers wishing to take part has also increased. New drifters can go through the BDC feeder series Driftcup, which takes place at the Adrian Flux Arena.
The series began in 2014 with three events across the UK, at Driftland, near Fife in Scotland; at Teesside Autodrome in Middlesbrough; and at Lydden Hill Race Circuit in Kent.
In 2015 the series has expanded into a five-round championship, starting at Adrian Flux Arena. A course is laid out to challenge each driver to the limit, and three judges will scrutinise every run until 32 drivers make it into the finals.
The top 32 drifters will go head to head to see who the best is. Each driver takes their turn to lead in two runs - the winner goes through to the next round.
Fifty drivers will head to the Adrian Flux Arena in the hope of making a top four place. That will earn them a place in the BDC at Knockhill Circuit in Scotland on June 13 and 14.
The event takes place all day with practice and qualifying from 9.30am. The twin battles will start at 6pm and go on until a winner is crowned.
