Prodrift Super Series 2009
Today Prodrift have announced a new and exciting schedule for international drifting in 2009.In addition to the Prodrift Ireland & European Series, Prodrift will introduce a new UK and Ireland championship; The Prodrift Super Series.
Across 5 events staged in both the UK and Ireland, Prodrift, in partnership with the British Drift Championship (BDC), will re-ignite events which have historically seen the most fiercely contested drifting battles in Europe.The Prodrift Super Series will incorporate a traditional Pro Class Top16 format and accept entries from Prodrift and BDC pro class competitors.
Kicking off on a custom high speed drift circuit at Donnington Park, UK, the Prodrift Super Series will test the abilities of the best UK & Irish drift teams at locations on both sides of the Irish Sea. Commenting on the launch of the Prodrift Super Series, Prodrift Managing Director Graham McNamara said, “Prodrift have always maintained an open minded approach to collaborations with international drifting organisations and our new partnership with the BDC is without doubt our strongest to date. From the beginnings of European drifting with what was once the D1 IRL Drift Series and the Autoglym UK Drifting championships, Irish and UK competitors have always enjoyed healthy competition. With the new Prodrift Super Series, Prodrift & BDC aim to re-ignite that rivalry and deliver a competition that is rewarding to competitors and teams across what is often a common commercial market for sponsors. The Prodrift Super Series will also offer new Pro Class license holders a first step in international competition, without special invitation or elitism, but based on merit and determination”.
Mark Buckle of BDC echoed McNamara’s sentiments by stating “the BDC has worked hard to earn the trust of the British drifting community and in 2009 will introduce a Pro Class Competition. Our new partnership with Prodrift will ensure that the introduction of a BDC Pro Class License is supported by the experience of the Prodrift team who’s input and assistance will be instrumental. The Prodrift Super Series offers our Pro Class competitors immediate access to battle in what promises to be the most exciting drift competition in the UK or Ireland and a competition that will test the limits of the best BDC drivers”. The Prodrift Super Series will enjoy media coverage from both the UK and Ireland and feature a dedicated website as part of a forthcoming Prodrift online portal at www.prodriftseries.com. Further information regarding sponsors and additional promotional activities will be announced in due course.
