Xtreme Driver Beau Yates win ADGP!

Beau Yates has capped off a successful weekend winning Round 1 of the Australian Drifting Grand Prix (ADGP) Series at the Calder Park Thunderdome in Melbourne.

In one of the toughest and most competitive fields since its inception, ADGP Round 1 was highly anticipated with fresh liveries and revised cars for the 2015/2016 Season being debuted.

Xtreme drivers Michael Prosenik, Jake "Driftsquid" Jones and Beau Yates were also sporting new liveries for the weekend.

Saturday gave the drivers a chance to practice and adapt to the layout in readiness for Qualifying and Battles on the Sunday. Michael qualified 5th, Beau qualified 7th and Jake qualified in 22nd spot.

All 3 drivers successfully won their Top 32 and Top 16 battles making it through to the Top 8. Jake was up against QLD driver Josh Boettcher taking him to a re-run before getting knocked out in a close battle. Michael was up against WA driver Brent Gordon where he narrowly lost his battle. Beau came up against fellow Achilles-sponsored driver Rob Whyte knocking him out and advancing through to the Top 4. Beau then came up against Josh Boettcher taking the win progressing into the final battle against Brent Gordon. Beau took the win crowning him the Round winner.

Be sure to head to Round 2 of the ADGP Series at Adelaide International Raceway on November 28th - 29th.

Competition drifting pushes cars to their absolute limits mechanically so reliability is key. I’ve been using an Xtreme 230mm twin plate clutch for two seasons now and it’s proven to be stronger than many other brands used previously. We inspected it after the first season and it looked brand new!
