Monster Energy Drift Show: The Drivers

Baggsey

Steve "Baggsy" Biagioni

With competition in his blood, and a lifetime of experience behind the wheel, it’s no surprise that 30 year old Steve "Baggsy" Biagioni, shreds the tread around the clock.

 

Hailing from Essex in the south of the UK, Baggsy has been in the driving seat since he could reach the pedals.

 

Over a professional career spanning a decade, he has won the British championship, bossed the King of Europe Drift Championship, gone door-to-door in D1, and repped the claw in drift demos around the world. This year will be his biggest season yet, hitting demos and competitions from Dubai to Dublin in his epic foot to the floor flat out style.

Luke Woodham

If ever there was an example of how hard work pays off, then surely Luke Woodham is it.

 

While some drivers are born into race teams, others have to work hard just to jump behind the wheel once. This is why when we saw Luke tearing up the competition on track at Gymkhana GRiD in the same car he drove to the event in, we had to support him.

 

It’s been a tough journey for 29-year-old Luke, to go from fixing broken motorcycles as a full time mechanic, to turning pro. In just four years, Luke’s talent behind the wheel has taken him from relative obscurity to scoring four world titles in the Gymkhana GRiD Series, as well as podiums in the British Drift Championship. All this, in a car that he cut, welded, painted and prepared in his own back yard. Not bad right?

Rick van Goethem

Ironically Dutch drifting prodigy Rick Van Goethem’s first experience of burning rubber wasn’t at the wheel of his own car. In 2007, Rick was wielding the wrenches for Falken drift team pilot Lars Verbraeken.

 

After five long seasons in the paddock though, Rick decided enough was enough; and bought a car for himself. Arguably the rest is history. After getting to grips with his BMW E36 missile car, the young Dutch driver stepped things up to a purpose built BMW E30, and then the 590bhp Nissan Skyline R33, which he races today.

 

Signed to Monster Energy in 2016, Rick is a regular in the King of Europe Pro Series Championship, as well having scored numerous podiums in the Nürburgring Drift Cup and Skylimit Driftcup. Be sure to watch out for him gunning for championship glory this season.
