Drift Kings 2015

The awesome Drift Kings competition is back for 2015 and is sponsored by Toyo Tyre. Drift Kings is a drifting competition with some of Europe’s top drift cars and drivers competing on the car killing Castle Combe circuit for a ‘winner takes all’ prize of £1000, a trophy and the glory of winning Drift Kings 2015 in front of over 16,000 people. 

The Competition

The competition will be run over three dedicated drift sessions and will be judged on style, smoke, skill and entry speed. This is a no-holds-barred competition that will not be for the faint hearted. Expect to see balls out drifting from the best as they compete to impress the judges and take home the prize!
