Check out this video of the SATS Cosworth Supra, along with its sponsors, including Titan Motorsports, tearing it up during round 1 of the British Drift Championships. The team has been working really hard to get the car prepared this season, and so far, the car is looking very strong. Below is the press release of the events prepared by SATS Cosworth:

The weekend of the 22nd and 23rd April saw the SATS Cosworth Supra sponsored by Titan Motorsports make its competitive debut at the Maxxis British Drift Championship, which was held at Donington Park.

The pressure was definitely on for the team after months of development work on the car, and with huge build up and publicity campaign for the car’s first outing, the team didn’t want to disappoint and they didn’t, the whole team delivered with a magnificent performance, coming 1st in the qualification on the Saturday Morning with a score of 93 points.

In the Afternoon it was on to the main Top 16 competition and after some hard fought battles against some of the country’s best drivers and machinery Mark Luney and Team SATS Cosworth went on to take top spot on the podium and go top of the Super Pro class in the Championship.

This was helped massively by the all the SATS Cosworth sponsors and partners who have been behind the team all winter helping develop the car to what it is today and without their constant support the win would not have been possible.

Speaking afterwards, team driver Mark Luney said,
“For the past six months, the team and I have been working on, and developing, the car alongside Cosworth, Maxxis and our many partners, the pressure was definitely on to take a top 3 spot. To take top spot in both qualifying and the competition is an endorsement of all that effort.”

“Last year, we used Maxxis Tyres at all of the events, and they helped us immensely to get to the podium on several occasions and now with Maxxis behind us as a partner supplying us with their MAZ1 Drift Tyre we have repeated last year’s success at the Donnigton Track. However, it was the first competitive event where we were using our new Meister-R brakes suspension and brake setup, Titan Motorsports stage 4 Head setup, as well as the VP Racing Fuel, so I am sure you can imagine the team and I were slightly tentative. After our first run though, all of our worries went out of the window, as the car delivered everything we expected, plus more!”

He continued,
“We’re not going to stop here though, and will continue to put 100% into the car in preparation for round 2 of the championship, where once again we will be aiming for the podium spot.”
