For 2009 we have expanded the series to host one more rounds, while still running the Triple
Crown series. 2009 will also mark the first year that drifting will be combined in an action sports
weekend bringing the drift culture and lifestyle to new areas of the UK, and raise the profile of
drifting in the UK to new levels that have not been reached before.
We now have the best tracks,best drivers coupled together with the best spectator accessible
venues for street courses, this will be a huge year for for JDM Allstars.
Round 1-Newcastle City-April 4th/5th
The first round will be held at a secret location inside Newcastle city. In a partnership with
Newcastle City council we will be bringing drifting to the forefront and exposing it to masses, in
this two day street festival. This will also kick of leg 1 of the JDM Allstars Action sports series
and also kicking of for the third year in a row in the north east.
Round 2- Lydden Hill/Lydd Raceway May 2nd-May 4th
JDM teams up with Driftracing LTD/BHP promotions .This three day festival with series of events in the south east with a two day drift competition at lydd raceway and finish with JDM Allstars Round 3 at Lydden Hill for the BHP Show. With the 2008 finals being so successful Lydden Hill still proves to be one of the most demanding tracks on the calendar.
Round 3- Wembley August 15th/16th
JDM Allstars will return to this prestigious and now World famous venue with our purpose built
street circuit, which will be expanded for 2009. After the huge success of the 2008 event this
historic venue will host a great festival brought to the capital like never before. Two day event
this year. Also this will be leg 2 of the JDM All stars action sports series.
Round 4-Silverstone September 5th/6th
JDM All stars teams up with Redline Events at there UK renowned Trax event. Here JDM Allstars
will be showcased in front of the biggest capacity crowds at one of the UK’s most famous car
shows. This world renowned track will test drivers to the absolute limit with its high speed
entries. This will be a fitting end to the 2009 series giving the capacity crowds and Drift fans a
day out they will really remember.
The 2009 series will still end up as a triple crown series as in 2008, as drivers will be able to drop
there worst score or miss a round. This should make for an interesting ending to the season will
lots of drivers going for the 2009 title. With 2-3 day events at each venue there should be lots
more action involved.
