As 2019 is nearing its finale, it would not be an exaggeration to say that it was indeed a great year for Malaysian drifting fans as we had the opportunity to witness events like the recently concluded Drift Kings Asia International Series (Malaysian round) in Malaysia.
The event, which was brought to you by Exquisite Motorsports Club, Monster Energy, Drift Factory, Dronsta, Ra2 Socialusion, Sudu & Knife, MyCar Malaysia, as well as Carlist.my, took place over two days on the 16th and 17th of December 2019 at the Elite Plus Speedway in USJ.
The series, which originated in Europe and has been dropping by Malaysia every year, saw close to 40 professional drifters from China, Brazil, Japan, Kuwait, Singapore, and Malaysia battling it out for glory.
With cars ranging from Nissan Sylvias, 2JZ-swapped 1000hp BMWS, Toyota Supras, and a whole lot more, it was indeed a feast for all senses for motorsports fans that were present over the weekend.
Besides the action on track, there were many activities for visitors and their families, such as food trucks, a Carnival Zone, meet and greet sessions with the drifters, exhibition booths by automotive aftermarket brands, as well as a huge Monster Energy booth with games and activities for those who stopped by.
“The Drift Kings Asia International Series Malaysian round did not only turn out to be an ideal platform to nurture and explore local talent in the drifting scene, but also to promote the drifting scene among Malaysians. Besides that, the event also played a part in promoting and boosting Malaysia as a popular tourist destination,” said Bullzai, the president of Exquisite Motorsports Club.
He also added that the theme for this year was “Kids Off The Streets”, aiming to increase the awareness of the art of drifting among the youth, encouraging them to take part in it and other healthy activities alike.
That being said, the images and videos of all the action which took place during the event is available for your viewing pleasure in the Drift King International Series, Adrenaline Impact, Drift Factory, and Exquisite Motorsports Club Facebook pages.
