Irish Amateur Drift Championship announce 2016/2017 calendar

by David Egan 28th November 2016

Welcome to the future of Irish Drifting. Welcome to the 2017 MicksGarage Irish Amateur Drift Championship.

Focusing on driver development and the equalisation of machinery, this 4 round championship gives new drivers a platform to improve their talent.

The top 10 finishers in the championship will gain IDC Pro-Am licenses and earn their place in the 2017 Link Engine Management Irish Drift Championship. With rules and regulations designed to level the playing-field, the IADC has become the ultimate proving-ground for future Irish drift superstars.

Here is the full calendar for the 2017 season:

Round 1 – Proving Ground – Mondello Park – December 11th

Our aptly-titled season opener will utilise the infamous Mondello Park national circuit and give our 70-strong grid of up-and-coming drivers their first taste of competitive drifting. Watch the next rising IDC stars emerge in front of the grandstand on December 11th.

Round 2 – Backlash – Mondello Park – January 15th

The championship and IDC Pro-Am license chase hots up as we alternate the Mondello Park layout and increase the difficulty for IADC Backlash.

Round 3 – Carpark Carnage – Mondello Park – February 12th

The Mondello Park paddock plays host to a brand-new custom circuit designed specifically to prepare our grid for the crazy layouts IDC will throw at them in the future. Varying grip levels and surface conditions will prove a unique challenge on February 12th

Round 4 – Judgement Day – Mondello Park – March 12th

The championship race comes to a dramatic conclusion on March 12th as every driver will risk it all to make those final 10 positions. Utilising a Pro-Class Mondello Park layout, this will be the biggest challenge our IDC hopefuls have ever faced. Who will survive Judgement Day?
