Plock, Poland – Wednesday, 15th December, 2021
Today, the Drift Masters European Championship (DMEC) are proud to announce that VALINO TIRES has joined forces with DMEC, where VALINO TIRES will now act as the official tire partner of the Drift Masters European Championship from 2022.
With a proven winning formula in worldwide drifting, including propelling Polish driver Piotr Wiecek to the top of the DMEC 2021 championship standings, VALINO TIRES will become the official Tire partner of DMEC starting in 2022 and will offer incredible support to the entire DMEC grid of drivers.
In announcing the partnership, DMEC President Arkadiusz Dudko had the following to say:
“I have now been associated with drifting for over 17 years and during this time, I have watched how much the tire market in this motorsport has changed. Currently, in professional drifting, a good tire plays one of the most critical roles and one of the best tires currently on the market are the products of the Japanese company VALINO TIRES. Today, I am delighted to announce that we have managed to acquire a tire partner who will help us develop our league and Professional Drifting. Alongside that, the fact that VALINO TIRES hails from Japan, where drifting truly originated, makes me very happy and proud to see our European championship and a Japanese company as strong as theirs coming together for the greater good of drifting.”
Equally as delighted to announce the partnership was Ian Andresen, President of VALINO TIRES Co., Ltd. who went on to say:
“We are very excited to announce our new Partnership with DMEC from the 2022 season! DMEC has taken the form to become one of the most competitive drifting series in the World. It is with great pride that VALINO TIRES will be represented and given the opportunity to enhance the drifting experience in Europe. We can ensure you that 2022 will be an epic year full of World-class battles … if you can see through the smoke!”
From all of us here at the Drift Masters European Championship, we are delighted to welcome VALINO TIRES to the DMEC family and we cannot wait to see how the support they provide to our DMEC 2022 driver grid helps further the level of competition in the series when our 2022 championship gets underway.
