Fredrik Øksnevad from Norway was the top qualifier in his V8-powered Toyota Soarer. In the end, local driver Benjamin Boulbes defeated Steve “Baggsy Biagioni to take the event win, which received a loud roar from the crowd when announced. The next round of the DriftGP series will take place at the National Exhibition Center in Birmingham, UK on June 24th and 25th.

2016 Drift Allstars – Round 1 Yas Marina [RESULTS]

DriftAllstarsRound1-YasMarina

While the Formula Drift boys were qualifying practicing in Long Beach, the first round of Drift Allstars was taking place as the historic Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi. The event at Yas Marina was missing a few of the top names including James Deane and Janis Eglite, but the competition was still quite competitive. Similar to Formula Drift, Drift Allstars will crown a European Champion alongside a World Champion, with this round counting towards the “World Championship” title.

Monster Energy driver “Baggsy” Biagioni had a newly-installed Nitrous-fed Chevy LS3 motor shipped over from the US just in time for the event, and the engine would prove to be a winning combination with his Nissan S13 chassis. Baggsy qualified first on Friday, and eliminated all drivers on Saturday in tandem competition to take the early lead in the championship chase.

Here’s how the podium shook out:

1st – Steve “Baggsy” Biagioni – Monster Energy / Westlake Tyre Nissan S13

2nd – Ahmad Daham – Nitto Tire / Tensai Tuning Nissan S13

3rd – Nigel Colfer – Tri-Ace Tyre Nissan S13
