Baggsy – Drift GP Championship Round One France – 2017

Straight off the back of his return from D1GP China Series, Baggsy was back on the road again this past weekend. This time headed for the Tours Speedway in France. This famous half mile oval track built for the Nascar Whelen Series in 2012 would play host to the first round of the Drift GP European Championship. A demanding track layout featuring a 9 degree banking and destructive walls really would push the drivers to the max.
A true heavy weight final was on the cards. Baggsy and top ranked French driver Benjamin Boulbes would go head to head for the top step of the podium. With little time Baggsy and the team would have to make repairs to the car due to damage picked up from the previous battle. The team pulled out all the stops and Baggsy was sitting on the start line ready to do business. Baggsy would take the lead on the first run, laying down a perfect line. The second run would see Baggsy take chase against Boulbes. Baggsy took close proximity from the start, but Boulbes would take a very shallow line on the banked section of the course forcing Baggsy to correct. Coming into turn 4 Boulbes drastically dropped speed forcing Baggsy to make contact. The judges would decide this was a disadvantage to Baggsy giving him the 2nd Place finish.
