Red Bull Drift Shifters will be bringing 12 of the world’s best drifters together on a custom track on the streets of Liverpool, rigged with advanced proximity and speed sensors.

Drivers must show their skill, speed and precision as they manoeuvre their way around the features. The closer – the better.

Dreamt up by drifting legend Mad Mike Whiddett to remove the uncertainty around judges’ decisions in drifting, Red Bull Drift Shifters first hit the streets of Auckland in Mad Mike’s native New Zealand back in 2012. Now, it’s going international, arriving on the UK’s shores – and the iconic dockside city of Liverpool – for the first time in 2018.

On Sunday August 19, a selection of the world’s top drifters, including Mad Mike Whiddett himself, will compete in the shadow of the city’s famous Royal Liver Building to see who is the slickest of them all.
