Gautam Singhania wins All Stars Drift European series
Gautam Singhania, chairman and managing director of Raymond Limited and founding chairman of Super Car Club (SCC), has won the All Stars European Drift Championship held at Malta in September this year.
A super car enthusiast, Singhania bagged the top spot at the All Stars Drift European series, which saw over 30 participants competing in this intense final.
Singhania, who was driving a modified Nissan Sylvia S13 at the competition, managed to narrowly edge past the second best by the point difference f 2.5. The other racers hailed from all across Europe, making Singhania the only Asian and Indian to have participated.
While unveiling India's first and only exclusive drifting car here last evening, Singhania said "Drifting, as a motorsport, has always attracted and intrigued me. I always wanted to learn this form of motorsport. It was great experience while competing at the All Star series. It feels like a great honour to be the champion in one of the most premier professional drifting competitions in Europe. The competition was intense but I managed to win. I will definitely pursue this sport further.
The drifting car is testimony to that and I have been practising in it to hone my drifting skills." At the event, Singhania unveiled a short film on his winning striker at the All Stars Drift European series. The video captures his performance at the series, uncovering his passion for the sport. It also offered a glimpse into drifting as a motorsport and how he managed to win the title.
This win follows close on the heels of SCC's adventurous Leh Ladakh Expedition 2012 held in August.
