Young Blood, Lwi Price Edwards podium finish at King of the Ring
16yr old Lwi Price Edwards aka Young Blood, finishes 3rd at the very last King of the Ring Drift competition in Essex Arena against experienced top class drivers.
In only his third visit to the competition and only 9 months behind the wheel of a drift car he qualified 7th before battling through drift battles to the top 8.
This the where the driving becomes fast and furious, with very close battles against experienced drivers but youngster, Lwi kept his cool and made it through to top 4 by 1 point.
His final drift battle again had to run ‘one more time’ for the judges to pick a winner but he finally finished an amazing 3rd place.
The BMW 2.8 Compact fitted with sassa roll-bar srl was faultless all day, supported by Allitalia Ltd and choosing to run West Lake tyres for the competition worked well in the wet conditions.
With the BDC in his sights for the future, this talented 16yr old will be the name to watch out for in 2019
