DRIFT SHIFTERS GOES INTERNATIONAL

NZ Performance Car - - Line -

You al­ready know the yarn be­hind the wildly suc­cess­ful and out­right wild cel­e­bra­tion of all things smoky and side­ways: the Drift Shifters for­mat, dreamt up by our own ‘Mad Mike’ Whid­dett to re­move the un­cer­tainty around judges’ de­ci­sions in drift­ing and first seen on our very own shores when Red Bull Drift Shifters lit up Auck­land’s wa­ter­front back in 2012 along with a gag­gle of the world’s big­gest drift­ing names.

Back then, Quay Street was shut down and packed with 20,000 fans, all to watch the world’s best drifters come and put on a show. It was an am­bi­tious propo­si­tion by any­one’s stan­dards, but as the NZ Per­for­mance­Car team stood look­ing down at the packed-to-ca­pac­ity course back then, it was clear that Red Bull and Mad Mike had pulled off per­fec­tion.

Now, the party is head­ing overseas to UK shores and is set to take place in the iconic dock­side city of Liver­pool. The event will be go­ing down on Au­gust 19, 2018, and the team be­hind it is promis­ing a se­lec­tion of the world’s top drifters, in­clud­ing Mad Mike him­self and two-time D1NZ cham­pion, ‘Fanga Dan’ Woolhouse.
