Sweeps AE86 Special Edition T-Shirt

Our AE86 shirt has been produced as a Limited Special Edition for British Drifting Driver, Mark "Sweeps" Buckle.

To celebrate the glory of his upcoming Yellow Peril of a AE86 Drift Weapon, the shirt is produced in a vivid yellow scheme.

Sweeps is a character well known in the UK drifting scene, but if you are not familiar with him, or his Hatchi, then pop over to Driftworks and watch his progress.

Mark is also been key to creating, developing and promoting the British Drifting Championship mentioned in previous blog posts.

Although the Sweeps Hatchi is still undergoing race prep, we do hope to see the car run next season. Until then Mark will be at the forefront of BDC promotion and we also hear tell he may be commentating for the European Drift Championships for this 2007 season.

Watch this space for more BDC and EDC news !

The Sweeps AE86 shirt is a short run, and will not be available again, so please contact us to reserve and order your shirt.

New Drifting Championship Announced !

Putting and end to the rumours at the end of the 07 season, officials have released an press release confirming a new UK feeder series to Eurodrift :British Drift Championship Press Release

Exciting times ahead for the UK's oldest drift series !!

We are very proud to announce our plans for the 2008 season and explain some key changes to our corporate structure that will ensure next year is better than ever.

We felt that we should concentrate on the core part of our company name and from next year the series will be known as the "British drift Championship". This should make people realise that its THE series for up and coming drivers in the UK and the place sponsors and teams will want to be seen competing at as they battle for top honours, this includes chances to progress to full EDC Professional status. The Championship will be fully recognised by the European Drift Championship as a feeder series, more news will be released on some exciting opportunities for our drivers and EDC in the near future.

We have got to our position as the UK's top amateur and pro-am level drift series through the hard work and dedication of our founder Terry Collins and his team, we will still be using alot of the familiar faces. However things progress, next year we aim to run to a higher standard than ever before. With the huge number of drivers we had competing during 2007 it was clear it was time for some new blood to step in and help with the actual running of Drift UK. Terry has been joined by a 5 strong team to help cope with the huge demand such a large and varied championship can bring, This will ensure that 2008 will be the best ever for the UK's amateur and progressive drifters. Terry will continue to provide a service to people interested to learn about drifting via his Drift skool. This will be a separate entity to the championship.

The team will consist of Mark Buckle, Mat Clawley, Paul McCallum, Simon Perry and Keith Hammond

Matt & Mark will be responsible for the day to day running of the events, which they did a very good job during the 2007 season.

The marketing side of the team will include Paul, Simon & Keith who between them have many years experience. They will bring some fresh ideas for exposure and are confident what they will bring to the series for 2008.

I am sure that with Marks experience of this year’s championship and of course his commentating skills we are set to do good things next year. It is also good that we have the help of a spread of driver talent and perspective, so with Marks two seasons of EDC behind him, and Mat who is at the opposite end of the scale, a keen amateur and total car enthusiast, we feel we have a well balanced team to make the events a great success.

We will be working and co-operation with the newly formed Drift Organisation.

A full season calendar and other fantastic news will be released shortly once the last details have been put in place over the next few weeks.
