Drift fans starved of sideways action during the winter months, now have a new event to look forward to during the Christmas break.
Mondello Park will host the first ever Drift-Jam Matsuri, a single day Drift festival on Sunday December 29th. The event will feature Pro and Street Drift Cars on two separate Drift Tracks, and a Drifting demonstration by some of the best drivers from the Irish Drift Championship.
Cars will run on the National Track and on a separate circuit on the International Loop. The event will run in two sections. The morning will see two groups of 'Street' Cars drifting on the National Track while two groups of 'Pro' Cars will alternate on the International Loop. In the afternoon the groups will swap, with the Pro's now providing the entertainment on the main track. As the climax of the afternoon, Ireland's top Drifters will be invited to Drift past the Grandstand and through Ford corner, with the driver getting the biggest cheer of the day receiving a special award.
Entries to Drift-Jam Matsuri are open to Amateur and Pro Drifters, with both competition and non-competition cars accepted. Cars will run in groups, alternating on track in 15 or 20 minute sessions and all drivers should get five sessions during the day. Spectators are welcome and those attending will be treated to the most intense days Drifting ever to take place at Mondello Park.
