With the 2012 BDC season over and the 2013 season on the horizon the time had come for us to hold one of our ever-popular Licensing Days. The British Drift Championship Licensing Days give drivers the chance to wow the judges with their car control, technique and all round ability with the hope of gaining a license to compete in the upcoming season. The days are also very popular with drivers who already have licenses but who are hoping to impress the judges all over again with the hope of moving up a rank in the BDC licensing structure (Semi-Pro, Pro and Super-Pro are the licenses available).
We have had 6 events at 5 venues over the course of the season and have had drivers from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, Holland, Germany, Portugal, Belgium and Norway. In the end there can be only 1 winner per class.
Semi Professional class champion taking the crown at the final round is Team Rampstyle driver Owen Taylor
The Professional class champion driving his trusty Nissan Skyline R33 is Team Dorihero driver Christian Lewis.
In the toughest championship class in Europe and after 8 years of competitive drifting we can officially announce the 2012 Super Professional champion is Team Japspeed driver Paul “Smokey” Smith.
The team/constructors championship went down to the wire with eventual winners being Team Japspeed.
After the perfect end to an amazing season we can now officially announce the winners from round 6.
The Semi Pro class was won by Jay Green
