The British Drift Championship, is set to make a dramatic return April 2019 with a new owner, new team and new venues. With all this excitement we could not help but get involved and have become one of the main championship sponsors.
Here at obp Motorsport we have been supporting a variety of motorsports for over 10 years; this includes the world of drifting with us supporting drivers such as Steve ‘Baggsy’ Biagioni, Luke Woodham and many others. The BDC has been going for over 10 years, it has a rich history of drivers, teams and events spanning over the whole of the UK. Drivers from all around the globe have come to battle against the best the UK has to offer with the likes of former Champion Matt Carter.
“We are extremely excited to be working alongside the British Drift Championship for 2019! Since the start of obp Motorsport we have been heavily involved with many famous drifters including Baggsy, Both Shanahan Brothers, Nigel Colfer and many more world wide. For 2019 we have decided to go back to our roots and support the highest level of the sport in the UK. Roll on Round 1!” – James Oliver the Group Sales and Marketing Manager at obp Motorsport.
This year the BDC will consist of 6 rounds, with round 1 at Teesside Autodrome where the BDC has been for over 10 year. Round 2 will see us go to Scotland with a return to Driftland, Europe’s only designated drift circuit. Round 3 takes us to a secret location in Sunderland and Round 4 seeing it return to the NEC for only the 2nd time in its history. Round 5 takes us back to Wigan and the 3 Sisters race circuit with the 6th and final round taking us to Buxton Raceway for a 3 day spectacular.
“obp Motorsport are another great company to have on board, I’ve known James a few years now, he knows how good the drifting market is so was keen to get involved this year. They provide a brilliant service to everyone whether its a new customer wanting advice or a established trade customer. I’d highly recommend looking at their product range if you haven’t already!” – Matt Stevenson the Director of BDC.
Both individual round and full season tickets will be available soon, so make sure you check out www.thebritishdriftchampionship.co.uk, but if you are unable to attend any events don’t worry as there is going to be a livestream. The fans wanted livestream so it will be provided, for 2019 we are using a new company with new features; more camera angles and drone footage are just a few new things to expect.
