Ladies and gents

We are proud to announce the 2010 calendar for the British Drift Championship. The 5 Round 2010 Championship has been put together with great care and detail to ensure that the BDC continues to evolve in a positive direction and represent the best multi-class drifting championship in the UK. 2010 will see BDC run over 6 venues and include Norfolk as the team event.

Central to the 2010 BDC calendar are events which offer our competitors maximum seat time in a relaxed yet professional environment. The unique atmosphere that our teams and drivers enjoyed during 2008 & 2009 will continue to define the BDC as we work to involve a larger international field of drivers across both classes.

The BDC 2010 is structured to take in both demanding 100mph tracks and smaller more technical venues. As a result, BDC 2010 drivers will be tested, challenged and judged across all aspects of drifting competition.

BDC 2010 venues are also chosen with our spectators in mind. This year’s venues will offer a safe yet close-up view of all of the action and the 2010 BDC paddock will be arranged in order to invite our spectators to interact with drivers, teams and sponsors.

It is with great pleasure that we can now reveal the dates of the BDC season 2010 and we look forward to seeing all of our drivers at Round 1 to kick-start another historic year for British drifting.

Round 1 – 10th/11th April Silverstone – Stowe Circuit
Going to the home of British Motorsport for Round 1 of the championship is seen as a massive step forward for the BDC. As one of the main attractions of the ISTS (International Styling & Tuning Show) the BDC will be staging our first event on Stowe Circuit and will witness a drifting competition unlike anything previously staged at this historic circuit.

Round 2 – 22nd May Llandow Circuit - South Wales
The BDC makes a welcome return to one the regular BDC tracks of 2008/2009. With a tight section followed by fast flowing curves this venue has everything to test to our drivers. With big name upsets in the past, will there be another David versus Galieth event?

Round 3 - 19th June Lydden Hill - Kent
The drivers' favourite is once again on the 2010 calendar as the BDC returns to the fantastic venue of Lydden Hill in Kent. The BDC hosted the first ever drift competition at this venue in 2008 and made a triumphant return in 2009. The spectators will witness drivers battling for top honours on the fast hills of Lydden and the drivers will require every ounce of power and skill to master this demanding course.

Round 4 – 17th July
This venue is exclusive to the BDC in 2010 and has never been used for drifting in its history. The stakes will be high to be the first ever victor on this track in front of an expectant crowd.
The location of this event will be announced in due course.

Individual Top 32 Competition & Team Event 6/7/8th August (3 day drift extravaganza) Norfolk Arena - Kings Lynn
After an amazing 3 day event in 2009 the BDC returns for the most fun packed weekend of drifting. The smallest but most technical track on the BDC calendar will see drivers given more practice than has ever been known at a UK drift event. Battling inside the purpose built oval will generate an electric atmosphere with enthusiastic crowds just metres from the action. This event will offer three days of drift action. Friday will see the track open to all competing drivers as a full day of practice. Saturday will see the BDC run a Top 32 for ANY BDC Licensed driver from either class to see drivers battling it out in front of the always excitable audience. The Sunday will play host to the world famous BDC Team Championship - with close battles and team triple drifting, it will be another fantastic day! Can Team Green hold their crown for a second year?

Round 5 The Final – 25/26th September Knockhill - Scotland
The BDC makes it’s first visit to the world famous Knockhill circuit in Scotland. This 2 day event will see qualification for both classes take place on Saturday followed by the Semi Pro final. The Pro final will be on the Sunday with the top 16 taking on the mighty 100MPH entries on the blind entry to Seat Curve. This event will bring the 2010 BDC season to a fantastic climax and will determine who will be crowned as the British Drift Champions in both Semi Professional and Professional classes.

Details of driver licence renewals and driver eligibility will be announced in due course. In the meantime the BDC wishes everybody an enjoyable and relaxing Christmas.

Many thanks

The BDC Team




Looks like an epic year, I gotta get my car back! :D
