I’m a bit confused by the UK drift scene at the moment. There are now 4 different drift series running events across the UK: Prodrift (who also organize events in Ireland), European Drift Championship, British Drift Championship and JDM Allstars. Each are competing for drivers, sponsors, media coverage, and fan interest. Each has their own strengths and unique qualities, and several have conflicting dates. Personally, I question how long this scenario can be sustained, especially given the economic problems currently hitting the UK.
At any rate, we do need to pay our respects to the Prodrift crew. They are innovators in European drifting, and certainly have some very cool cars running in their series. Have a look at the video to see what I mean. From their Irish base, they’ll have one of the best European drift championships going in 2009.
