The past weekend saw Baggsy and the #LSXR35 bring the smoke to Odense, Denmark.

With an amazing mix of cars from show to performance, and 20k people in attendance. It’s the perfect place for any petrolhead.
The outside live action arena was bringing the entertainment to the crowds all weekend. The drift demos were packed out with people waiting to see the smoke show action. The fire breathing #LSXR35 proved to be a definite crowd favourite. Continue reading Baggsy Boosted Magazine Auto Show Denmark
Drift Masters GP Round 3

Baggsy was excited to debut his new LSX-R 454 V8 powered PS13 at Round 3.

Last weekend celebrated the 25th anniversary of Goodwood’s Festival Of Speed. Possibly the biggest highlight on the automotive calendar for manufacturers, drivers, enthusiasts and petrol heads alike. The Goodwood estate, situated in West Sussex and the seat of the Duke of Richmond, plays host to a 300,000 plus crowd across four days of motorsport and car culture celebrations. Not to mention the whole event is live streamed worldwide to millions of viewers.
Baggsy returned for his third consecutive year at Festival Of Speed. His weapon of choice, the fire breathing 1200hp #LSXR35. Baggsy was also joined in his rig by fellow Monster Energy athletes, Nicolas Hamilton, Vaughn Gittin JR and Liam Doran.
Baggsy would pilot his V8 swapped R35 up the famous Goodwood hillclimb a total of seven times across the four days. The drift group is a sure favourite of the crowds at FOS, a constant roar of cheers and clapping can be heard throughout the demos. Once the smoke settles the fans surround the cars for pictures and autographs. There is only a handful of drift cars amongst the high end/luxury sports and hyper cars scattered across the lawns of Goodwood, and the crowds love every bit of them.
If you love cars, engines, motorsport and everything in between. Then Festival Of Speed is a must. Every year it gets bigger and better, and even after 25 years it still impresses even the FOS veterans. There is never a quite moment, and we love it!
Baggsy: Goodwood Festival Of Speed is always a highlight of the year for me. To be invited back to take on the hill and celebrate their 25th anniversary is a real honour. The fans and crowds are absolutely amazing, and its great to showcase drifting in such a prestigious environment. It was great to see the #LSXR35 get so much attention in amongst so many super cars and hyper cars, it still makes me laugh seeing the shock on peoples face when they see the size of the Garrett turbo. We had previously made some changes to the GTR, and I’m really happy with how it performed across the event. It certainly ate some rubber and made a lot of smoke during the demos! I would just like to give a big thank you to all my sponsors and the SB Motorsport team for keeping the car running so smoothly. Also a massive thank you to the Duke of Richmond and all the marshals and staff at Goodwood. Without them none of this awesome automotive celebration would be possible. We can’t wait to come back for more!
