At the close of the 2014/15 Australian Drifting Grand Prix Season, it’s organisers, Track Battle, released another fresh innovative to join next seasons tour with the “State of Origin” competition and in 2017 the Showdown is on!.
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 October 28th in-conjunction with the last instalment of the 2017 Jamboree Sports Compact Drag Racing Tour.
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! It’s going to be a cracker!
