The final round of the 2014 Maxxis British Drift Championship season would take place at the picturesque Trac Mon circuit in Wales. Set on the west coast of Anglesey, the circuit’s twists and turns overlook the Irish Sea and reside in the shadow of the Snowdonia mountain range. As far as surroundings go, Anglesey sits head and shoulders above most circuits in the UK without a doubt. This is the first time that the championship has visited Anglesey, resulting in a level playing field. Consensus amongst the drivers was that the judged line was fast, challenging and would certainly test the driver’s skills one final time before the off season.

Going into the event, Team Japspeed’s Shane O’Sullivan had already secured the championship title, but with second place Stephen Biagioni absent, competing in King of Europe in Valencia, the rest of the standings were wide open. Ireland’s O’Sullivan didn’t back down, taking top qualifier spot, followed by young sensation and fellow countryman Jack Shanahan. Matt Carter, fighting for the second podium place nailed third, putting him in good stead for the tandem battles.

Come Sunday it would be Matt Carter’s day. After a difficult route to the finals seeing off three Team Japspeed drivers, he would face Shanahan in a closely fought final. As the champagne hit the floor, Carter would take the final round of the championship, and with it secure second place in the standings to O’Sullivan.

What more could you ask for? A fantastic weekend’s drifting under the unexpected Welsh sunshine. I’ll let the pictures do the talking…
