BDC championship hopefuls will have to overcome their bitter overseas rivals and the rest of the BDC roster in order to claim their £20,000 championship prize fund.

“In preparing for the future, it is important to not forget our past. The sport has evolved a great deal in the past 10 years and is now in a very positive position to now advance beyond previous limitations.

We are encouraging all UK drift fans to come experience the new British Drift Championship in person and support your national series. The atmosphere and excitement at each event are indescribable and we believe 2018 will further showcase the potential of this unorthodox motorsport. We constantly aim to improve every aspect of the series and break through each glass ceiling, but we cannot do it alone.

It’s time for all automotive enthusiasts to believe in this anti-establishment form of motorsport and prove that people-power can achieve great things. The rising talent within the BDC needs your encouragement and in return, they are ready, willing and able to accept any challenge or danger thrown at them this year.

The fuse is now lit, so let’s fan the flames. I will see you all at the start line.”
