The kings of drift start the 2020 season at SLOVAKIA RING
The predecessor of the series - King of Europe has been a regular fixture here since 2012. This year the championship changed its name, but the essence remains equally interesting and spectacular: parallel duels of two "supertuned" cars, drifting at speeds exceeding 180 kmh... This is no small thing and the viewers are often entertained by failed maneuvers - i.e. contacts, or skidding into the gravel traps.
The track is short, with a long start straight and a subsequent series of two esses. The sound of tuned engines, the endless smoke of burnt tires and the acrobatic rides of Europe's best drifters will be something to watch. The judges compare a number of factors that will decide the winner in the knockout races: the accuracy of the riding line, maximum speed and angle, tire smoke, overall show and telemetry.
Drift Kings will also start their 16th season here. The racers will compete in the Pro, Pro2 and Queen Series classes, the latter designated for ladies. The European offshoot of this international series later continues to Hungary, Germany, Greece and Cyprus.
In addition to the Drift Kings, other interesting international events await the SLOVAKIA RING circuit soon, headlined by the OMV MaxxMotion WTCR - FIA World Touring Car Cup, which will share our track on the weekend of June 6-7 together with the FIA ETCR - European Truck Racing Championship.
