King of Nations drifting series slides to PH racing

FILIPINOS are gaga over cars that race sideways, tires smoking, engines at full throttle. Thus it is not wonder that organizers of the biggest and most highly anticipated international drifting championship event in the world—the King of Nations drift series—is coming to the Philippines in May. 

The Federal Tyres King of Nations ProSeries Philippines 2018 (KONAPH2018) was launched at the opening day of the Manila International Auto Show (MIAS), which was held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. KONPH2018 run at the Clark International Raceway on May 25 to 27, 2018.

 KONPH2018 is the last round of the King of Nations Asia ProSeries 2018 and the 12th of 24 events on this year’s international drift racing calendar. The first event was held in Verona, Italy, in January while the first round of the Asia ProSeries was held in Thailand in March. 

“The Automobile Association of the Philippines looks forward to the staging of the King of Nations drifting event on May 25 to 27. This will be the first drifting event in the country to be sanctioned by AAP since the FIA accepted Drifting as an accredited motor sport event only last year,” said AAP Motorsports Chairman Mandy Eduque at the press conference, which was held on April 5 at MIAS.

“Created in 2012, our association now has 25 members representing their countries from all over the world. We also participate in the FIA Drifting Workgroup and act as relay between FIA and World Drift Association. Drifting is growing across the world and we want to continue to grow the right way and this is why King of Europe is the founder of the World Drifting Association. Networking is the key to our worldwide evolution,” Michael Procureur, King of Nations ProSeries founder and CEO said. 

The Federal Tyres King of Nations ProSeries will showcase foreign drifters such as Daigo Saito of Japan; Davide Daevil Dorigo of Thailand; Hirohide Tanaka of Japan; Nasser Almutairi of Kuwait; Zai “BullZai” Hamdan of Malaysia; Keiichiro Kadekaru of Japan and Toni “HalfBreeds” Arakaki of Japan who will compete against some of the finest professional Filipino drift racing heroes led by Luis Gono, David Feliciano, Alex Perez, Atoy Llave, Jason Chuachoy, Audel Sison, Alvan Fowlerr, Patrick Ng, Boodie Dabasol, Luis Sayson, John Boban, Norman Wycoco, Mark Bernardo, John Lazaga, Norman Agojo and Ralph Tan.

“I’m so excited to be here in the Philippines. I’ve seen some talented Filipino drivers abroad but I can’t wait to see the local drifters who I heard are young and skilled as well,” Vernon Zwaneveld, King of Nations Head Judge said at the KONPH2018 Press Conference. Zwaneveld, who just arrived from Thailand for the second round of the King of Nations Asia ProSeries at the time of the press conference said that KONPH2018 will surely be the most anticipated drifting event of the year.

Born in the Japanese mountains, drifting is the world’s fastest growing motorsport, which was established as a sport by Keiichi Tsuchiya in the eighties. It has evolved into a worldwide competitive sport that challenges the drivers’ ability to control their vehicles. Drivers are scrutinized by judges according to their technique, speed, angle, line and showmanship as they drive through a set of corners in cars powered by engines that are rated from 600 to 1,000 bhp.

“The Federal Tyres King of Asia ProSeries was our first series outside of Europe, which was established in 2015,” Stephen “Stiggy” Evans, King of Nations Philippine Round Technical Consultant explained. 

“This year, in its fourth season, we will return for an intense three-round competition as some of the world’s best will go head-to-head on some of the most well-known circuits. This is undoubtedly the hottest region when it comes to drifting—talent and also temperature,” he shared.

 “Federal Tyres King of Nations promises to deliver an exclusive experience, combined with noise, smell of smoke and an action full of thrilling entertainment,” Evans also stated.

KONPH2018, which is sponsored by Federal Tyres, ST Suspensions, Remus, Autophile, Autoplus, Motul and Fontana Leisure Park, and sanctioned by the Automobile Association of the Philippines (AAP), is organized by BackStage Events. It is supported by Rota, Brembo, Kiss Juice, Clark Speedway, Voda Pure, 10inch Lights and Sounds, NPPA Images, MAD Films and Dole with media partners AutoCar, BusinessMirror, Malaya Business Insight Motoring, Manila Times, driven2ride and 9tro Group Philippines.
