Russian Drift Series

Drift Allstars Round 1. Yas Marina Circuit

Motor sport fans from across the GCC descended on Yas Marina Circuit this weekend to watch the world’s biggest Drift AllStars in action.
For the first time, a star studded line-up of 10 international drifters as well as the best drifters from across the Middle East battled it out on the North Circuit of the world-famous F1® track in the hopes of taking the coveted top spot in what proved to be a spectacular first round of the 2016 Drift AllStars GP Series – Abu Dhabi Drift GP
 
In the main event it was Steve Baggsy Biagioni from the UK dominated qualification, unbelievably this was the first outing for his newly revised Nissan S13, built specifically for his international competition campaign in 2016 and equipped with a freshly American built LSV8.
 
Embracing the power and laying down the right lines, he was joined in P2 by Andrius Vasilkiaus(Lithuania), with Ali Makhseed (Kuwait)in his Toyota Supra leading the middle east representation in P3. 
Seasoned championship contender Nigel Colfer(Ireland) locked in P4 in the Tri-Ace tyres S13 with a run that looked like he'd been here a hundred times before.
 
Our Top 16 throw up some great battles and some drama at the same time. Reigning UAE champion Ahmed Alamri would battle Abdulhadi Alqatani, but a mechanical problem caused an engine fire and that put the Toyota GT86 pilot out of the running.

This is another huge Japanese driver coming to America to battle it out with the best in the world. He will be a nice replacement since Yokoi isn’t going to return this year.

Formula DRIFT Round 3: Unchartered Territory Results

Long Beach, Calif. – June 6, 2015 – Formula DRIFT presented by GoPro entered Orlando Speed World for the first time for Round 3: Unchartered Territory. Ryan Tuerck in the Retaks / Maxxis Scion FR-S takes the event victory and moves into second place in the standings.

Round 3: Unchartered Territory lived up to its moniker as the Series entered Orlando Speed World for the first time. 637,000 viewers tuned into the Driftstream during the weekend and were not disappointed. Despite the inclement weather, the action on track was very competitive. The new track would prove to be challenging even for the most seasoned of veterans.

“We were happily surprised with the at capacity crowd attendance for our first time at Orlando Speed World,” says Jim Liaw, President of Formula DRIFT. “Florida has always been a key demographic for the Series and now I think we have found a sweet spot in Central Florida.”

Podar Alexandru Calin #7. Overall

  • Name: Podar Alexandru Calin
  • Born: 29.03.1988, Romania
  • Car: Nissan Skyline R33
  • Team: Motonik Drift

1. Meet Podar Alexandru - How did you get into drifting?

A couple of years ago I've attended a local drift event where one of my friends was part of it. He took me for ride and it blow my mind. I was always into cars and motosport , it's my passion.
From the beginning I knew if I wanted to start this, I have to look for the best and not keep the passion just for myself and a group of friends.  So in 2012 I took the decision to buy a Nissan Skyline which was brought from UK and from that point all started to take a shape.

2. So you were not new to motorsport, right?

No, I've been part of a few competitions in drag race and offroad but drifting it's a complete new experience for me; I've decided to stay on and grow as drift racer.

3. How did you develop your drift car for this year competitions?

"I wasn’t logging speed over the week but I can say with confidence he was one of the fastest cars around the Long Beach course this weekend. Teams doing certain data logging even told me he was in the top percentages of consistency around the course. The amount of grip this car has at full lock blew my mind away. Sadly, he went home early during Top 32 with a broken axle. I cannot wait for these guys to be in action at Road Atlanta!"
