Entries for the 2021 edition of the FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup, the first to be held in Europe, have opened, with the event scheduled for the June 11 to 13 in Riga, Latvia.
Drivers wanting to compete for the highest honours in drifting have until 12:00 CET on May 21 to submit their registration.
For the first time, competitors are able to register entries and compete for both an individual and a team title during the event at Biķernieki Sport Complex, a venue known as the home of the Latvian round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship.
Launched in 2017, the FIA IDC is the first-ever FIA-regulated drifting competition. The first three editions were held in the spiritual home of the sport – Japan, initially at a non-permanent venue in the Odaiba district of Tokyo, before relocating in 2019 to the renowned Tsukuba Circuit. The inaugural edition of the FIA IDC was won by local ace Masato Kawabata, with Georgy Chivchyan taking back-to-back victories in 2018 and '19. After a one-year sabbatical in 2020, the return of the FIA IDC also marks the first time the competition will be held outside Japan.
