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…)
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!

With Round 2 of the exciting Maxxis British Drift Championship only days away, we thought we’d relive some of the previous action shot by the talented Stephen Brooks. There needs to be little words here, just simply sit back, turn the volume up and get fired up for a night at the Arena!
Ladies and gents
We head to Norfolk Arena or round 2 of the Maxxis British Drift Championship next weekend.
Friday 1st and Saturday 2nd June!
Here are the times you need for all the action from the UK’s premier drift championship.
0900 the track will open for practice, the Semi Pro’s out first, Professional class up next followed by the Super Professional class.
Practice will finish at 1330, we then go in to single run qualifying from 1400. The drivers go in the zone to show the crowd and more importantly the judges exactly who should be in the all important top 16 positions.
The drivers get the chance to chill out before we open the track for more practice from 1130. Practice will run until 1500.
The cars will then be lined up on track and the crowd will be invited to meet the drivers and have an up close and personnel view of the cars.
Then at 1630 we start the main event, the finals!
The Semi Professional class
The Professional class
The Super Professional class
In that order, none stop action guaranteed all the way until we have 3 winners and a Team/constructors winner for round 2!
The event will finish under the floodlights of the Arena at approximately 2100 so no excuses to get your self to the event.
We look forward to seeing you there next weekend!
The BDC team.
