DRIFTCUP ROUND 4
Saturday, September 12, 2015 at 12:00 am
Drifting has always been about having fun, having a laugh with your mates and driving your car as hard as possible. As the sport has entered the mainstream over the past decade some of these core factors have fallen by the wayside with crazy builds, big name sponsors and high stakes taking their place. Costs have spiralled out of control in recent years, with cars boasting monster horsepower figures and specialist fabrication work taking pride and place at the top of the podium at competitions around the world, with the UK being no exception.
There is an ever-increasing void between those at the sharp end of UK competitions and those that simply enjoy having a good thrash with their friends at practice days around the country. Many of these grassroots drivers would love to try their hand at competition drifting but the cost and time involved is simply too much.
Enter DriftCup – a championship conceived and organised by the British Drift Championship for those grassroots drivers. A series designed for street-driven and every-day drift cars, we aim to bring the soul and spirit of Japanese amateur drift events to the UK, where having a good time and pushing yourself and your car takes precedence over egos and glory.
The series will consist of three one-day championship rounds held at venues around the country that boast a strong grassroots following and track layouts that reward a committed, close-quarters style of drifting with the aim introducing drivers to competitive drifting.
The championship is open to all drivers (except those that have competed in either the 2013 or 2014 BDC series) and focuses on those that want to better their skills in a relaxed environment.
With DriftCup we aim to put the fun back into drift competitions, taking inspiration from the likes of Ikaten and Drift Muscle events in Japan where drivers focus not on victory, but on having fun and putting on a good show.
