I finally setup an Instagram account for the site rather than continuing to hijack my personal one – give streettracklife a follow.
The British Drift Championship have just announced that the series is under new ownership, with Irish Drift Championship foreman David Egan having taken the reigns. As the response to this has been almost universally positive, I wanted to take a look at why this news has been so well-received and, more importantly, what this holds for the upper echelon of drifting in the UK.
If you’ve ever had any involvement in the UK’s drifting scene, you’re probably familiar with Lydden Hill. Host to numerous drift practice days and championships in previous years, the circuit has been a mainstay on the UK drifting calendar for a while now. On December 18th the track announced that they’d be removing drifting from their 2016 calendar, with the exception of British Drift Championship and King of Europe events. I wanted to find out not only why this had happened but what could be done to prevent the loss of grassroots drifting at other venues, so I decided to take a further look into how this situation came about.
