Red Bull Athlete ‘Mad Mike’ Whiddett has confirmed Red Bull Drift Shifters will return in 2018 following a four-year hiatus.
This year’s event will take place in Liverpool, England for one day on August 19. The electronically judged drift competition will take place on the streets set to the backdrop of the Royal Liver Building.
The location is the same place where parts of the move franchise Fast & Furious 6 were filmed.
With the location announcement comes confirmation of the first international drifter to join the long awaited event. Joachim Waagaard of Norway will contest the one-day event in his 633kW BMW M4.
Joining Whiddett and Waagaard will be New Zealanders Gaz Whiter of Dargaville and Whangarei drifter ‘Fanga’ Dan Woolhouse. Whiter got given the chance to compete this year after he won the last edition of Mad Mike’s Summer Bash.
