Drift King retro cup

Following the announcement of the Drift Kings Retro Cup, Vince, our tech inspector, has been inundated with inquiries about the event. This post aims to provide clarity on what the Retro Cup entails.

So welcome to Drift Kings Retro Cup, the newest and most thrilling drift event on the planet! This unique competition showcases drivers behind the wheel of their classic drift cars, emphasizing skill and style in what we proudly name “the first-ever international historic drift race.” Get ready to feel the nostalgia in the air, evoking the drifting vibe of 2005!

The race structure remains familiar, featuring practice, qualification, and Top32 battles like every Drift Kings event. What sets Drift Kings Retro Cup apart are the specific requirements for entry. We welcome all classic drift cars to this event, categorizing them into “Classics” or “Outlaws” categories.

The Drift Kings Retro Cup is exclusively open to classic drift cars produced before 1995, with a maximum tire width of 205. Only street tires are allowed; semi-slick tires are prohibited to maintain the event’s spirit and ensure a level playing field. Participants are encouraged to preserve their vehicles’ original specifications, favoring classic components and technology. Any modifications must align with the event’s spirit and pass approval by the technical inspection team.

Cars meeting all these requirements will be admitted to the “Classics” category. To accommodate all retro fans, an “Outlaw” category is designated for cars not meeting the pure “classic” criterias but still embracing the retro spirit.

All vehicles must adhere to Retro Cup safety standards outlined in the Drift Kings rules E section, a lighter version based on Appendix K (FIA Historic Competitions)

The emphasis in this competition is on drifting skills over power—the man before the machine, and Serres technical layout, promising an event that keeps everyone on the edge of their seats. The Drift Kings Retro Cup promises an unforgettable experience, generating excitement with numerous inquiries already received.

A celebration of drift culture and friendly competition, the Drift Kings Retro Cup invites passionate individuals from all over Europe, let’s see which driver will be crowned the first-ever “Retro King”!

Detailed planning and additional information will be provided in the weeks leading up to the event.
