Lighting up the Titanic Quarter at the weekend, the Red Bull Car Park Drift welcomed 5,000 motorsports fans to a custom-built drifting track in the heart of Belfast.

Sunday’s event had sold out in under a week and provided fans with a spectacle of competitive action featuring speed, smoke and screeching tyres.

The event marked the first of the Red Bull Car Park Drift 2022 World Final Qualifiers and with just one qualification place available for the 2022 World Final, the competition was stiff with 30 drifters from across Ireland determined to make their mark on the Irish and International drift scene.

Drivers were marked on the quality and precision of their performance as well as the look and noise of their car and tyre smoke kicked up during the run.

Tyrone’s Kevin Quinn, one of ten wildcards, took the title and qualification to the 2022 Red Bull Car Park Drift World Final.

14-year-old Conor Falvey from Cork, drifting alongside his father, Thomas was one of the stars of the day, alongside Red Bull Athlete Conor Shanahan who took to the track to open the event in a flawless opening run on both days in his 780hp Toyota GT86.
