The ProDrift academy, which was started in Ireland by the same team who founded the Prodrift Irish Championship drifting series, announced this week that they will be expanding their operations to Saudi Arabia. The Prodrift Academy helped train 15 year old Jack Shanahan, who is the 2015 British Drift Championships champion, and several current Irish Drift Championship drivers have been guest instructors during the off season. This year marks the third year that the Prodrift Academy has been in UAE, and sixth overall year of operation. Saudi Arabia’s car culture has been exploding recently, and Vaughn Gittin Jr. has even made a few trips to help promote the Ford Mustang over there.
Prodrift Academy has setup a new Facebook page for the new location, and should be hosting students in the next month or so. Looks like students will be driving a Mustang RTR in Saudi Arabia, which seems like a great car to learn in!
