Famed Latvian drift team HGK celebrated their tenth anniversary with a shootout that included several top name drivers in the sport who they are proud to call their friends. American drivers Chelsea Denofa, Ryan Tuerck, and Matt Powers all made their way out to Latvia for the shootout, driving in well-equipped cars against some of the best drivers from Eastern Europe. In the end, Polish driver Piotr Wiecek took the top spot, narrowly taking out his Budmat Auto teammate David Karkosik in the final. The consolation round was an All-American affair, where Chelsea Denofa piloted an E92 chassis past Ryan Tuerck’s borrowed E46 chassis for the final podium position at Bikernieki raceway. We’ve been told that some pretty awesome videos will be dropping shortly from Donut Media, so keep an eye out for those.
Final Results from the HGK Challenge are as follows:
1st – Piotr Wiecek
2nd – David Karkosik
3rd – Chelsea DeNofa
4th – Ryan Tuerck
