In 2023 we were organising the highly acclaimed GATEBIL SCANDINAVIAN DRIFT SERIES PRESENTED BY MEGUIAR’S 2023 which becameI an incredible journey for both organisers and drivers. We achieved our goals we had set for the season which was to be the greatest drift series in Nordics with the best drivers from countries such as Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, among others. We aim to create a professional series where the drivers fought on track and kept a good fellowship off the track.

What to expect in 2024?

Gatebil Scandinavian Drift Series Presented by Meguiar’s aim to be the greatest drift series in Nordics with the best drivers from countries such as Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, among others. We aim to create a professional series where the drivers fight on track and keep a good fellowship off the track.

The goal is to become the largest drifting series in the Nordics and the drivers from all over the world are welcome to participate in the series. We want to create a series where the drivers fight on the track and help each other off the track. Gatebil Swedish Drift Series considers the atmosphere among the teams a crucial part for a good series.

The greatest achievement was that 3 out of four 4 rounds happened under Gatebil Festivals, which meant high event attendance by spectators, brands, sponsors, partners and also greater exposure for drivers, their own teams and sponsors.

Gatebil Scandinavian Series Presented by Meguiar’s

Season 2023 marked a change for Gatebil Festivals, as the new Scandinavian Drift Series replaced Gatebil Drift Series and Swedish Drift Series, and became more prestigious by gathering not only drivers from one country but combining drivers from all over Scandinavia in one drift series. Also, we saw some exciting wildcards from other regions of the world.
