As amateur snow drifting reaches its peak, the professional drift season comes to a close. And while the smoke begins to clear, new rules and regulations for the following season are constantly being composed, concocted, and fabricated. In anticipation of the following season chew chiefs and drifters alike must ensure they adhere to the new implementations while maintaining powerful cars and proficient drivers. In Ireland, Prodrift hosts the professional drifting circuit which may soon be revised and rebranded as the Irish Drift Championship. What will change? This hasn’t been defined yet, it may just be a name, or it could be the steps towards taking drifting in Ireland to bolstering its status abroad. Either way, this may be the last year we hear the name Prodrift tossed around in the pits for some time. Throughout Europe Prodrift has ignited enthusiasm about drifting and has cultivated some of the world’s most successful drivers in the process.
One of the latest changes to Prodrift has been its ability to entice paying consumers to watch the more amateur drivers while anticipating the main events. This has been advantageous for Prodrift and as more spectators turn out for these sorts of events, this should be expected. So in homage to Prodrift, here are some of the pictures from the car show, amateur, semi-pro, and professional drift sessions that our friends at Drifted.com snapped.
