Irish Drift Championship announce 2017 calendar

by David Egan 30th November 2016

New season, new format, new championship.

In 2017 the IDC will pioneer a radical new format, replacing tried and tested with non-stop entertainment value. We have compiled our research, discarded tradition, re-designed the rulebook and are ready to provide a championship for the fans, by the fans. 

The 2017 Link Engine Management Irish Drift Championship Calendar:

Round 1 – Modified Live – Mondello Park – April 22/23:

Witness a new beginning for the most adrenaline-fueled motorsport in the world. A radical format change means anything could happen at this much-anticipated season opener.

We begin our epic journey at the home of Irish Motorsport, Mondello Park. With new rules, new builds and championship scores reset to zero, this event will kick-start the championship chase for many drivers. A faster-paced, re-designed and entertainment-based championship awaits IDC fans.  Who will draw first blood at Modified Live?   

Round 2 – Drift On The Docks – Dun Laoghaire – May 20/21:

The Irish Drift Championship invades the picturesque town of Dun Laoghaire, where the craziest conceivable location meets the most dangerous layout imaginable. 

An event so ambitious, only the Irish Drift Championship would attempt it. Our talented roster will take a big step into the unknown and compete on a layout specifically designed to showcase bravery and resolve. The venue is over-looked by the entire South-Dublin town, meaning this once-in-a-lifetime show will certainly introduce professional drifting to the masses. Expect the unexpected as we create drift history in Dun Laoghaire.

Round 3 – Global Warfare 4 – Mondello – July 1/2:

With Irish drivers remaining 13 years undefeated on home soil, international superstars from across the globe will descended upon Mondello Park attempting to break their streak.

Irish Drift Championship Vs. Drift Allstars

The best from the USA, Japan, Europe and Australia have tried, but the Irish have successfully defended their stronghold. At Global Warfare 4 they will face their biggest challenge yet, as the Drift Allstars roster will numerically match their own. Get ready for an intense battle with national pride at stake. Can the Irish prevail this time around?    

Round 4 – King of The Hill – Watergrasshill – August 12/13:

Drift history will be made as a brand-new Super Series sees the best drivers from both Ireland and the UK go to war on a circuit designed to test ability and bravery.    

Irish Drift Championship Vs. British Drift Championship – Super Series Round 1

This tight, technical track plays host to the first round of the Irish Drift Championship vs. British Drift Championship Super Series and penultimate round of the national championship. With two rival nations going to war and a brand-new championship on the line, this is one event you do not want to miss. Who will be crowned 2017 King of The Hill? 

Round 5 – Japfest – The Final Fight – Mondello Park – September 23/24:

Our final round of the season needs no introduction. Ireland’s biggest and baddest japanese car show never fails to produce heart-stopping moments and define drift careers.

Irish Drift Championship Vs. British Drift Championship – Super Series Round 4 (Final Round)

In 2016 The Final Fight attracted over 10,000 spectators to watch the best drivers in the world do battle. This IDC and Super Series decider will feature international guest appearances, high-speed action and breath-taking battles. Who will be crowned champion? This is the Final Fight.

Drift Games:

With our new faster-paced competition format freeing time on the IDC schedule, we thought we would give IDC fans exactly what they want, on-track insanity. The IDC Team Drift Championship will feature at each round and see four car teams work together to win the crowd vote. Add Backwards Entry, 360 Entry, Parking Drift, Wall-Run and numerous other crowd-voted competitions and you have a recipe for non-stop insanity.

Irish Drift Championship Vs. British Drift Championship Super Series:

Ever wondered what would happen if the best drivers from the Irish Drift Championship faced the best from the British Drift Championship in a stand-alone championship? Wonder no more as 2017 sees the launch of a brand-new four round Super Series combining the best talent and venues from both nations. With a host of international stars also lining up to join the title-hunt, this ground-breaking series will see worlds collide and boundaries broken.
