Drift Allstars – Round 2 Sturup

dard

Drifting is starting to get very popular in Denmark but with a non-motorsport friendly country like ours we don’t get a lot of big events. When we heard that Drift Allstars was coming to Sturup Raceway only 40 kilometers from Copenhagen we were on it. Sadly we couldn’t be there Saturday due to some family businesses.

Drift Allstars is one of few large drifting series in Europe with 6 rounds all over Europe and Baltic countries. It’s well organised and have some of the best drifters competing. If you are lucky and have show nearby don’t hesitate, go for it. It’s a lot of great action!

We made a gallery in the end of this post with high res photos.

Our time is a bit limited at the moment. Lot’s of work going on and weekend was full of Gatebil. Therefore we will just give you the results and a lot of stunning actionshots. I hope you will return for more posts. We have some in the makings.

Results:
1.Juha Rintanen – Nexentire Tire Europe
2.Dawid Karkosik – Budmat Auto
3.Janis Elgite – Wisefab

Our good friend Martin “Pyramiden” Poorhamidi did not qualify for the finals due some misunderstanding in one the runs and scored therefore a zero point. Some might say that wasn’t fair.

We did not get any chance to shoot video so we lent our equipment to Thomas from Niceride Production.
He made this actionpacked video. Go and check his videos out at facebook.com
