The Maxxis British Drift Championship Dinner Dance has become an annual tradition over the years, with the drivers, teams, friends and family all gathering at the end of the season to congratulate the winners, hand out the year’s awards and enjoy a good night with great people. This year’s dinner dance took place at the Marriott hotel in Peterborough and was a fantastic night to remember for all involved!
The British Drift Championship kicked off in style at the weekend with the first round of the championship held at Lydden Hill in Kent, England. (more…)
Here is the first instalment, a preview of the coverage from round one of the championship at Lydden Hill!

With the start of the 2013 British Drift Championship just around the corner, we thought that now would be the perfect time to take a look at this year’s line up. From the stalwarts to the newbies, the movers and shakers to the long time protagonists, this season looks set to the best ever for both the drivers and the spectators.
With the weather in the UK being terrible with snow and freezing conditions, there was always a doubt to whether this event would take place at all!
The venue had been cleared of snow on Friday evening, but arrival at the track we found a coating of 75mm of snow covering the track! Not the best start to the day, how ever due to the fantastic work from the ground crew at Norfolk Arena by 1000 the track was cleared, marked out and ready for the drifting to begin!
With the track tested by judge Rich Newton and Mark Buckle the action began at 1015, a little later than planned but the normal relaxed BDC atmosphere and banter meant smiles all round.
Conditions were tricky to start with as the remainder of the snow melted under the spinning rubber of the 35+ cars that were attending.
Some regulars could be seen around the arena, Lewis Cracknell‘s car was present but not for Lewis, but his dad Phil was getting in on the action hoping to achieve a licence. Keeping it in the family! (more…)
We’re pleased to announce that The British Drift Championship will be in attendance at Trax 2013, which is being held once again at Silverstone on Sunday 8th September.
With lots of thrilling action you can be sure it will be a day not worth missing. We’ll be releasing more details soon, but pencil the date into your diary for one of the hottest shows of the year.
2013 marks the sixth year of the British Drift Championship, now with the support of some of the largest motorsport companies in the world! This year’s championship will be held over five rounds at some of the best tracks in the UK, including the BDC’s long-awaited return to one particular venue.
Support from Cosworth, K&N, Samco, Lucas Oils and many others is proof that the sport of drifting (and the British Drift Championship in particular) is now the place to be seen and is well-recognised as the pinnacle of drifting in the UK and Ireland.
It’s all confirmed now! The Maxxis British Drift Championship team will be at the popular Autosport International Show in January. The Autosport show at Birmingham’s NEC sets the industry standard! It brings together every aspect of motorsport all under one roof! Playing host to everything from Karting to F1 and now, British Drifting!
The 2012 season of the Maxxis British Drift Championship saw the sport and organisation boom! The level of attention received pushed things to the very edge of manic. Drifting fans just couldn’t get enough of the action that the BDC promises, and delivers! The teams and drivers all stepped it up a notch and we were rewarded with a season that surely has to go down into the history books as a landmark for British Drifting!
