Competitors from five countries slid into the top 16, vying for bragging rights in the International Drifting Cup 2019 presented by Garrett Advancing Motion. Those 16 became eight, and from there a clear winner emerged.
With blistering pace off the line, the nitrous-fed D-Max S15 2JZ Silvia looked unbeatable in the hands of reigning Japanese D1GP champion Masashi Yokoi, but an uncharacteristic mistake saw him leave the track in the very last battle while chasing the GT Radial S15 of Josh Boettcher.
Boettcher drove throughout all his battles with controlled aggression, putting pressure on his opponents and forcing his way to the pointy end of the field.
Congratulations to all competitors! Here are the results for the International Drifting Cup 2019 presented by Garrett Advancing Motion, from the Top 16 to the winner!
