Due to the current CoVid-19 pandemic, we have been forced into making changes to our 2020 race schedule. We are monitoring the situation closely as it is developing, and additional rescheduling may be required.
We have been busy preparing for the new season from the moment the last visitor left our 2019 season finale - Night Strike at Raceland Krško. As soon as the curtains drew on a successful season, we were already hatching new plans.
The face of the Series, one of its co-founders and the main creative force of the team, Drey Nitrous, has stepped down from his position as a general manager of the series.
We promised everyone a spectacular season finale and that is exactly what was delivered at RD4 - Night Strike at Raceland Krško. 32nd Drift Squadron’s event is perhaps still a little young to call traditional, but the hype and anticipation surrounding it, as well as the great vibe throughout the event are strong indicators that Night Strike is traditionally excellent.
32nd Drift Squadrons Night Strike has become an instant classic, now becoming a traditional event, despite being quite new. As always, it will be held at Raceland Krško and it will also host the season finale of Adria Drift Series. But tradition is one thing and evolution is something different entirely.
The third round of this season, RD3 – Danger Zone took place at the former Soviet airbase in Tököl on Saturday. And what a weekend it was! Located just outside of Hungarian capital Budapest, this fast and treacherous track, paved with grippy Soviet cement and asphalt forced the drivers to really commit to their run. Concrete jerseys and huge tyre walls are not something our drivers encounter too often, but they have become popular in Hungary, so our drivers had to face them all the same.
First half of the season is behind us and as drivers return from their summer break, they know they have to get ready for a high-speed course at an abandoned Soviet airfield. This track requires bravery, precision and complete focus, much like the virtues of army pilots who used to speed down this same patch of tarmac.
The second race of the series took place at Karting center Blažon in Belica, where the starting grid contained 26 drivers of 7 nationalities. Quite a few of them were new names, making their debut in Adria Drift Series, however all the best-ranked drivers from Round 1 were also there.
After the first round of Adria Drift Series's adrenaline rush at Slovenian House of Drift, the RD2 – SHOWDOWN is next at a totally new venue in Croatia!
A very special location was chosen for the 2019 season opener - Blagomix Logatec, the Slovenian House of Drift. We deemed it only right to bring high-profile international drifting. The starting grid was incredibly diverse with drivers coming from 6 different countries, but even more so car-wise. Among the predominant BMWs and Nissans, as well as some Toyotas to complete the standard marques-list, one could even spot an Audi and an Alfa-Romeo flying sideways past them.
