At the close of the 2014/15 Just Car Insurance Australian Drifting Grand Prix Season, it’s organisers, Track Battle, released another fresh innovative to join the next seasons tour with the “State of Origin” competition. The event was put on the back burner until after the championship season had come to a close to allow the drivers to stay focused on their own campaign, but now the 2016 champ has been crowned it’s time for the states to go to war.
Just like the famous NRL match ups, ADGP has created an event that instills the interstate rivalry hardcore fans thrive on. Teams from QLD, VIC, SA, NSW and WA will battle it out at the Calder Park Thunder Dome on November 12th in conjunction with the last instalment of the 2016 Just Car Insurance Jamboree Sports Compact Drag Racing Tour.
Team captains for the State of Origin have been confirmed and will be announced in coming weeks. The event is set to be one of the biggest on the Australian motorsport calendar with the Calder Park venue coming alive for Drag Racing, Drifting and a Show ‘n’ Shine not to mention all the off track action that’s in store! It’s one not to be missed.
Each State will present a team consisting of 5 drivers and up to two reserve drivers in a showdown where the winner takes all. Like most team sports the competition will run on a fixture style format with each team having a ballot draw to determine who battles who in the Prelim rounds! Full Rules and Regulations can be found on the website, australiandriftinggp.com.au.
Stay tuned for more info, it’s going to be a cracker!
