There are two ways of approaching a British Drift Championship round: you can either be very serious and focus on nothing but achieving a result, or you could just try your best, have fun with your team and spend the evenings camping trackside, having a few beers, drift triking and having a laugh with the other teams that share the same values. I’m glad to say that this weekend’s round at Teesside was very much the latter for myself…and that Teesside’s West Course also makes for a cracking drift triking track.
Also, the team triple drift competition today opened a lot of eyes and proved that there are plenty of willing and capable drivers out there in the UK. Big shout out to the Slide Motorsport boys (Adam, Matt & Ben) plus the appropriately titled “Team Reprobate” (Rich Grindrod, Phil Morrison and Smiffy) for knocking out a couple of door on door six car trains to finish off the weekend. Happy days. Stay tuned for all my pics and full report.
