I can remember 7 years ago when I first got into drifting, pretty much nobody in New Zealand had heard of it. Back in 2004, we were ridiculed by the usual circuit and grip racing drivers: “that’s not racing” and “you punks looks silly out there” were a common thing to hear at Pukekohe open days or on the old Taupo Racetrack. It’s been this way up until the last couple years, where D1NZ is now recognised as a sanctioned national championship, and a proper motorsport. Support from around the globe with international companies getting involved in drifting has solidified this.
