Beijing Burnouts: Baggsy brings the noise to D1 China opener

May 252017

Setting his sights on nothing short of global Drift domination, Baggsy jumped on a plane and headed east for the inaugural round of the D1 China series last weekend.

With round one hosted in the countries’ bustling capital - Beijing - D1 China is a five event official sister series to the legendary Japanese D1 championship, from which it gets its name.

Jumping out of the airport cab and into the cockpit of his trademark V8 Nissan S13, Baggsy got straight down to business for the first practice session. Unusually it wasn’t just the track layout Baggsy needed to get to grips with though.

After a smoke filled top 16 in which Baggsy faced off against legends such as Daigo Saito and Masato Kawabata Baggsy finished the weekend in 10th. “Round one D1GP in China was a great experience. Having the opportunity to compete in in a new series is always very exciting but always interesting, as you never know what to expect,” Baggsy told us.

 

“Sharing the track with legends like Daigo Saito and Masato Kawabata is a dream come true. The V8 S13 performed perfectly even under the extreme Beijing heat. We got some great qualifying results and made it into the top ten of the main event. I can’t wait to head back to China for the next round on the hunt for that podium finish.”

 

Baggsy will be back in action in the D1 China Series for round two, which is set to drop in Shanghai on the 10th and 11th June.
