Round 4 of the 2015 King of Europe Drift ProSeries took me back to where everything began for me. Just a few years ago I was on the sidelines at Lydden Hill practicing away with my camera and shooting the motorsport that I loved. Little did I know that a few years later I would be returning to be able to see both my home circuit and the competition that I have been following so closely this year combine.
As always with Lydden, you can guarantee it’ll deliver close battles combined with a high-speed yet challenging layout. This time, King of Europe decided to mix things up even more. With the clipping point on the extremely fast final turn normally being placed on the inside, KOE opted to have the clipping point on the outside, this would mean that if you get it wrong, you’re likely to end up in the gravel.
Drivers struggled to get used to the new layout, but with lots of seat time available they adjusted and started nailing it with pin-point accuracy.
This was one of my favourite events to date, with one of the best atmospheres that I’ve experienced during my countless times at the circuit. Great vibes and driving and I can’t wait to return next year.
