Rookie is ready for final test
3:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in Sport
BEN Fisher has taken to the sport of drifting after only 12 months with a UK Open Championship final place.
The 30-year-old from Shipston- on-Stour won five consecutive meetings at Birmingham Wheels in his BMW 328 to ensure at least joint first position in the table.
Fisher, who runs Station Road Garage in Chipping Campden, has guaranteed a spot in the grand final involving the top 32 at Welsh circuit Pembrey on Sunday, October 27.
Qualification is based on the season's best four performances.
Drifting involves oversteering but maintaining control while tackling corners and drivers are judged on speed, angle, showmanship and the line taken.
Fisher said: “It’s fairly aggressive but the emphasis is on fun. When it comes to motorsport, it’s as cheap as it gets to compete.”
