Super D Cup is a newly announced drifting tournament from the group that brought you the Super D Matsuri at Grange Motor Circuit last October. The events will be focused on driver skill, with a format centered around the driver, maximizing seat time and excitement. Each round of competition will feature a different course layout replicating a technical Japanese circuit that forces the driver to rely on their technique, not their machine. This aspect of Super D Cup will allow anyone with drifting skills to be competitive!

Registration isn’t up yet, but with the first round in just 38 days, I would assume it will open up any day now. In the mean time, you can view their 2017 Rulebook here to make sure you’re ready.

I was first introduced to drifting in 1998 by one of best friends, Mike Schneider. After several years running as Lookout, we stumbled upon Hyperfest, the first sanctioned drifting competition in the United States hosted by USDrift in 2002. Shortly after that we began working alongside USDrift and eventually taking ownership. We then began helping others across the country set up and host their own drifting events. Working with Drift Association in 2005, we helped create the PRO/AM series that continues to develop and progress the next level of drivers to Formula DRIFT.

    I can see there is a lot of interest in this.

    KPA,
    Which sucks is that because they want to keep it technical which is great, but means that they’d almost be stuck solely on the skid pad.

    Sounds fun but not enough “Fanboy” for drivers to make the trek to Thunderhill.
