King of Europe Kragujevac 2011

Remember that Making of a drift car article a few months back? Well that same car is finally in some good fashion drifting action! With the KOE (King of Europe) being held in Kragujevac, Serbia. The owner of the car was amongst the competing drivers, alongside with a couple of other drivers from Croatia, namely Marko Brkljačić, Josip Žagar, Miro Zrnčević, Goran Šorak i Dario Skoko to conclude a drivers list of 45 participants from 17 countries.

Marko (the owner of the BMW E36 drift project) placed in the top eight alongside Josip Žagar, before qualifying as 22nd in the event. His first race was against Miro Zrnčević in the Nissan Skyline, which he won 2:0 to advance in the top 16!

After that he took an Italian driver in an BMW E30 with an M5 engine, who he also defeated with the same result, 2:0 for Marko! That win advanced him to the final eight of this competition, which is pretty much a great result for a young driver like him. After that win, the battle for the semifinals took place, where he was defeated by a Slovenian Gregor Sedlar in his BMW M3.

KOE Kragujevac is one of the most attractive drifting events in Europe! The location of the city where it’s held, the track itself, the crowd who is fired up from the beginning, it all adds to the popularity of this event.

But also the prologue is held on the city streets, where drifters drive and do donuts, spins, burnouts, all to the excitement of the home crowd. The event is also broadcasted by Motors TV, giving the proper exposure to the sport.
