2012 Ebisu Drift Matsuri and G1 Grand Prix Dates

2012 Ebisu Drift Matsuri and G1 Grand Prix Dates

Hey guys and gals. Long time no write! Disco Stu here with some dates and info about Drift Matsuri and G1 competitions for this year, 2012.


G1 News!

In 2012, they’re going to be running the G1 competition in two separate classes– Super Class and Regular Class.

Super Class entrants are those drivers who have previously won G1 rounds or a series.

Current Super Class drivers are as follows:

1. Christian Pickering (SC), Australia, RPS13 (2011 champion)
2. Chris Dejager (SC), Australia, R32 (2010 champion)
3. Andrew Gray, (SC), Scotland, JZX90 (round winner)

With the pro drivers in the Super Class, it makes it a lot fairer for amateur drivers to get a shot at winning a round and proving your worthiness to move up and compete in Super Class.

Below is the 2012 G1 and Matsuri schedule:

(if you are new to G1 and Matsuri, G1 is a drift comp for foreigners the day before Matsuri, a 38 hour non stop drift carnival!)
