To celebrate the imminent start of the 2016 Irish Drift Championship, IDC have decided to release their documentary movie Heroes For The Weekend for free, for the next few days.
The 84-minute film below focuses on the 2015 Irish championship and just some of the drivers who played their part. Rather than being a highlight reel of each event, the film offers a unique perspective of the drivers, families and friends, and tells their own individual stories including the sacrifices that need to be made to compete.
This film originally launched late last year on IDC’s new IDC Nation website, the only place that IDC will be available to watch live in 2016. The subscription-based website is a bold move, but one which is required in a country where it’s difficult to raise revenue to run a series. The proceeds from IDC Nation are promised to be injected directly back into the sport.
The video will return behind a pay wall after this weekend, so don’t wait too long to watch it.
