My build up to the BDC Round one wasn’t what I could have hoped for after becoming ill at the beginning of the week. Luckily the S13 only needed a few little finishing touches before heading to Rockingham.
Round 1 of the British Drift Championship took place at the Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby with a custom track on their outer paddock.
Round 3 of the British Drift Championship took place at the Birmingham NEC, dubbed the ‘Battle Of Britain’ as the DriftGP drivers would be in the mix for the weekend.
Long Beach, Calif. – August 8, 2017 – Formula DRIFT has aligned with the Irish Drift Championship (IDC) and British Drift Championship (BDC) to form a strategic alliance to develop the future rules and regulations for drifting.
“Drifting, by it’s very nature, has always been geographically segregated and this, in my opinion, naturally restricts global progression,” stated David Egan, CEO, Zigen Promotions – Irish & British Drift Championship. “Those in a position of influence generally work independently, without the additional knowledge gained by fellow organizations. I believe this strategic partnership with Formula Drift opens a positive channel to which we can combine resources and experience, with the betterment of the sport being the prime objective. I think the correct time has come to work together for what has always been a common goal: making the sport of professional drifting as successful as possible for all involved.”
The second round of the 2017 British Drift Championship was held at its spiritual home, Teesside Autodrome.
So with all the hype and changes that were around the British drift championship for this season we were eagerly anticipating BDC Round 1, having had a successful test day with our new Achilles Radial Tires. We were ready to rock! #Syril has had a few minor adjustments in the off season changing up to thicker 5 bolt Nissan Skyline shafts, new decals along with some extra aero namely the front splitter & top rear window spoiler – with thanks to EP Racing for the products & DLR Motorsports for fitting & making Syril look even more aggressive!
