First time at the Drift Champs in the Uk it’s such a big sport now and the talent from the drivers
The atmosphere that the drift champs brought to wembley Arena was spectacular.

For the first time held in the Uk its was pretty successful, although not as major as seen in the US.
The cars at players were amazing, most of them have been feature cars the quality and variety was phenomenal.
I’m glad the weather held out for the show! the show was so unique being located on a
airstrip with 2 aircraft hangars
