This week we take a look at the R33 Nissan Skyline of Nick ‘The Urban Tiger’ Brady, who has been working on his car over the past few months, albeit with a little help thanks to his self-confessed total lack of mechanical ability!
It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the 2013 British Drift Championship will be broadcast on Motors TV! After successfully broadcasting the 2012 championship to televisions around the world we are glad that Motors TV will once again be providing Europe’s premier drifting championship with the exposure it deserves.
In the run up to the first round in April, we’ll be taking a look at some of the builds that are currently in development for the 2013 season and we start off with Ricky Emery from MB Automotive and his Soarer.
2013 is already shaping up to be the best year of the British Drift Championship so far, and we are very pleased to announce that K&N will be supporting the championship for a consecutive year.
K&N are one of the world’s largest and most prolific air filter manufacturers in the world and are a driving force in the automotive world.
The poster for round 1 of this year’s British Drift Championship has been released! Please share it on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of – we want to make this year’s season the biggest and the best so far!
We have some great news for immediate release.
2012 Prodrift champion Brendan Stone, driver of the MG Crash repairs S15 will be joining the Maxxis Tyres (UK) British Drift Championship for the 2013 season.
Brendan said ‘Its with great pleasure and excitement I can announce Team MG Crash Repairs will take on the full British Drift Championship 2013 Season.’ Myself and team boss Mark Gaffney will take on the epic line up of tracks in the two MG S15′s, this is a huge news for us and has taken a lot of thought and planning but its just been confirmed. Hopefully we can take our success from 2012 across the water for BDC 2013.’
