The first Intercontinental Drifting Cup approved by the FIA is finally happening, will take place in Tokyo on September 30.
The announcement came at a fifth FIA Sport Conference in Geneva, saying that the inaugural event will be promoted by the Sunpros and Saita, with a former being responsible for D1 Grand Prix series since it started in 2001.
FIA President, Jean Todt, said, This is the beginning of the very important category for the FIA.
As we continue to develop motor sport around this world, drifting has the great appeal to young people and has the passionate core following which is only going to get bigger.
With a creation of the FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup, we’re building a framework for the standard format which will help the sport continue to grow and from grass roots level to more professional competitions globally.
We’re setting the standard for what I’m sure will be the hugely successful form of motor sport.
President of SUNPROS, Mr Saita, said, We’re proud to be able to hold a world competition in Japan with the form of motor sport that originated here.
At a same time, I want to contribute to the expansion of the drifting competition all over the world – this is the exciting time for this discipline. Mr. Isao Saita is also the founder of D1.
