2019/20 SEASON CHAMPIONS

Congratulations to Glen Pupich for becoming a 3 time Drift South champion, and to Ashton Anderson for being the first official Development Series champion.
Unfortunately due to the virus we had to cut the season one round short and couldn't get south to Teretonga. But we'll be back in around September for the next season

 

ROUND 4

Levels really shook the championships up this year with a huge amount of rain during the day meaning the slippery track tested the drivers.
Mechanical difficulties meant Glen Pupich could not progress past qualifying allowing the chasing drivers to close the gap.
Daniel Scott took the win, from Ben O'Brien and Guy Graham-Bagrie.
Development Series saw Peter Sarchett just pip Ashton Anderson, with Isaac Porter 3rd in his first event.

DRIFT SOUTH DEVELOPMENT SERIES

New to the format is the Drift South Development Series.

Basically the same as the old Street Legal, open to almost anyone who wants to come out and compete. You get 2 practice sessions and then a session of judged laps to give you a final score. Top 3 placings get the trophies

You must have some track drift experience, preferably from a Drift School

Requirements: Road cars and track cars are able to compete if they meet a few basic requirements: 

Road cars must have a WOF, bolted down battery and an approved fire extinguisher - bolted through the floor. They will be scrutineered to make sure everything is safe.

Competition cars may be used and must meet the same requirements as Pro Drift.

Personal safety requirements include a minimum of clean 100% cotton overalls and an approved helmet. (See Schedule A to find the regulations for helmets and all other requirements)
