Aussie Jake Jones Crowned 2017 Zhuhai Drift Champion

I’ve just got back from China and we brought home the 2017 Championship. It’s a pretty surreal feeling, and after 3 years competing over in China we finally managed to bring home the Championship.

It wasn’t without drama and plenty of ups and downs though. Mechanical dramas, miscommunication with the Chinese mechanics, crazy weather including Typhoons. You name it and we pretty well had to endure it. What a crazy year it’s been to say the least.

I tried a new avenue of sharing the adventure with all my fans and followers, I took my GoPros and captured as much footage as I could on and off the track. Editing every night and trying to upload the footage before I hopped back in the car each day. It was another challenge I put on myself but the enjoyment I get from sharing it with everyone is priceless.

If you get a moment please watch them, let me know what you think but be prepared, grab a coffee or even a 6 pack. Sit back and watch the series.

I’m now back in Australia and planning a busy year ahead for 2018. My Current RBM3 here in Australia is gearing up for World Time Attack Challenge on OCT 13th and 14th. This is going to be the biggest event on the calendar for myself. I will be bringing in a whole new merchandise range and aiming to put on one of the best Drifting shows seen. If you are in Sydney during these dates please let me know and I look forward to catching up.

For now though I am focusing on my plans for 2018. I’m aiming to get into the Formula Drift series in either Japan or the USA. It’s a huge task to make it happen but I believe I can partner with great companies to not only bring this huge dream to life, but also create maximum benefit for the partners who join my program.

Thanks for your time and for the support throughout my career as a Professional Drifter. Bring on 2018
