CELEBRATING THE 20th ANNIVERSARY OF PROFESSIONAL DRIFTING IN IRELAND

The announcement of the Irish Drift Championship (IDC) celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2024 is truly a momentous occasion for the drifting community in Ireland. Over the past two decades, Irish drifting has not only showcased the immense talent within the country but has also played a significant role in elevating the sport's recognition on a global scale.





Since its inception in 2004, Irish drifting has undergone remarkable growth and transformation, evolving through various iterations from the D1 Drift Series to Prodrift, Drift Games, and finally, the IDC. Each stage of this evolution reflects the unwavering passion and dedication of both drivers and fans alike. From grassroots beginnings to the grand stage of international competitions, Irish drifting has left an indelible mark on the global drift scene, garnering respect and admiration worldwide. The achievements of numerous drivers emerging from the IDC and making their mark on the international stage further solidify Ireland's reputation as a fertile ground for drifting talent.


As the IDC gears up to commemorate 20 years of professional Irish drifting, a journey down memory lane awaits, with a series of retrospective posts across our media channels. From honoring past champions and pivotal events to recognizing influential figures who have shaped the sport's trajectory, this reflective journey offers fans and participants a chance to delve into the rich tapestry that defines Irish drifting. Many of these stories and personalities, though integral to the sport's history, may have faded from the forefront of collective memory over the years, making this rediscovery all the more meaningful.


In tribute to this shared journey, the introduction of a special edition 20th-anniversary wreath to adorn banners, stickers, and merchandise is a fitting homage to the pioneers of the Irish drifting scene and a testament to the sport's enduring legacy. This unique design serves as a visual representation of the longevity and success of Irish drifting, fostering a sense of national pride and camaraderie among fans, drivers, and organizers alike. It serves to reinforce the shared journey and accomplishments of the Irish drift community, while also signaling the beginning of an exciting new chapter in the championship's storied history.
