The final round of the inaugural Super D Cup Technical Drift Tournament took place on November 26th 2017. Once again the Thunderhill skidpad saw top competitors travel from around the country to do battle on a narrow circuit. The course was a tribute to Sekia Hills (R.I.P.) which featured a high speed sweeping entry into a chicane followed by a tight hairpin. As usual the spectators and judges were treated to a healthy supply of exciting driving!
The morning started off wet and slippery conditions, but over time the course dried and the drivers were able to show what they were made of. The judges were looking for high speed entries and full commitment throughout the run. The 16 overall best drivers would advance to the tandem elimiations.
We have limited photo coverage from this round, but as always the full bracket is available at the bottom of the report!
