Organizers of a sporting event in November hope crowds will get the drift and put a local motor challenge in the same international popularity league as the city’s marathon and the Hong Kong Sevens.
The Motor Sports Club of Hong Kong is planning to hold the city’s biggest-ever car drift challenge at AsiaWorld-Expo in late November, Apple Daily reported Friday.
A total of 14 drivers from eight countries will go up against Hong Kong’s James Tang to compete for style, angle and speed points as they oversteer their cars around a course.
The challengers include Formula Drift 2013 champion Michael Essa, from the United States, and Japan’s Saori Ishikawa, champion of Drift Muscles Ladies.
The event will run alongside the city’s first large-scale international Auto Salon show of modified cars and super sports cars.
