NEWS: Official King of Europe Media Partner 2014

02/10/201410th February, 2014

We went to Budapest for the 2014 King of Europe Winter Party 2014; as you can imagine it was really hard work.

Budapest - Chain Bridge

It was my second time in this beautiful city; sadly the weather was even worse than last year. Saying that, I would strongly recommend the city as a travel destination. It has survived the wars without great damage, meaning the city if full of beautiful architecture. Above you can see the Chain Bridge, the emblem of the city.


Despite the fantastic city, the reason for our trip was the King of Europe press conference and Winter Party. The first part of the press conference was a review of the past season with some nice videos capturing the action. 

After the Review Party, the tracks were announced for the upcoming King of Europe season:

King of Europe Street Legal & Queen of Europe:


12 – 13 April : Round 1 – Tököl, Hungary


19 – 20 July : Round 2 – Constantia, Romania


30 – 31 August : Round 3 – Osijek, Croatia


06 – 07 September : Round 4 – Thessalonikki, Greece

A new series was then unveiled: the King of Touge. It’s a series dedicated to the roots of drifting – the mountain roads. With only four stops it might be a good alternative for the regular KoE drivers who can´t afford to compete at all eight Pro Races.

King of Touge

First stop in the King of Touge series is a well known spot for French drifters; the location of last year’s Touge Slide Challenge in the French Alps.


31 May – 1 June: Round 1 – Les sept Laux, France

The return of the crazy Karpacz Touge event, which has been a highlight of the Polish Drift Championship. This was a big surprise and we are already looking forward to it. The following clip of the last Karpacz event will explain why we love it so much.

But that’s not the end of the season! Celebrating the 10th anniversary of King of Europe, there will be a King of the Kings race in St. Pauls Bay, Malta on 4th-5th October. At the King of the Kings race, only winners of King of Europe events are allowed (and selected international guests). This sets the stage for an epic showdown of the best drivers from all over Europe.

We’ll be bringing you the best of the KoE series coverage throughout the season. It looks set to be a hell of a year!
