If you don’t know what drift shifting is, you’re missing a treat. In a nutshell, it’s manoeuvring round features on a track at speed to demonstrate skill, precision and speed.
And this year, British Drift Champion and Berkhamsted boy Matt Carter represented the UK, taking on the two world leaders in an exhilarating race through the streets of Liverpool at the Red Bull Drift Shifters event.
The speed and precision of 12 drivers were put to the test on Sunday 19 August in front of Liverpool’s iconic Royal Liver Building, as they tore through the streets of Liverpool in front of ten thousand spectators.
At the time of going to press, we didn’t know whether Matt had made it. We hope we’re not premature in saying congratulations Matt, whatever the outcome!
