There is no rest for the wicked, and certainly no rest for Baggsy. After a successful first round at the Drift GP, the PS13 V6 made a quick trip back to the UK before heading off to Denmark. The next instalment on the calendar would be one of the biggest Scandinavian motorsport events, DHB Show 2017. Held at Padborg Park, an airfield turned race circuit best known for hosting the Danish Touring Car Championship. The event truly has something for every motorsport fan including quarter mile drag racing, drift competition, burnout arena, show cars, trade village and live music.

But Baggsy was here for one reason. Armed with his Turbo VQ35 PS13, Baggsy wanted to throw down with some of the best Danish drifters and other international drivers hunting the DHB silverware. With a whole day of practice in the bag the time for qualifying had arrived, joined by a heavy down poor of rain. The event organisers made the decision to postpone qualifying from Saturday evening to the Sunday morning. Sunday would start with a brief practice session followed by qualifying. After two solid runs, Baggsy found himself sitting in the 5th qualification spot ready for the battles.

First up in the Top 16, Baggsy would take on local driver Martin Hjermitslev in his Dodge Viper V10 powered R34 Skyline. Martin making a mistake in the first run would give the advantage to Baggsy moving him on to the Great 8. Next up was Kenn Egtved aka Mr Grey with his Supercharged LS3 powered Z06 Corvette. A victory against Kenn put Baggsy into the Top 4 battles and another step closer to a podium finish.

The Top 4 would see Baggsy meet with another Danish driver, Mikkel Overgaard. The two drivers went full charge into their battle, but on the second run Baggsy would encounter a sensor failure causing his car to shut down handing the win to Mikkel. Calling a 5 minute rule, Baggsy returned to his pit to resolve the issue and head back out on track for the 3rd/4th place battle. This time Baggsy would battle Danish driver Mads Andreasen in his V8 powered E30 BMW. Baggsy would take the advantage in his two runs against Mads giving him the 3rd place finish.

Baggsy: It was our first time at DHB Show and it is one of the best events I have been to in a long time. The atmosphere in the pits was great. All the other drivers were really friendly and helpful. The track set up was really good fun. Fast 4th gear entries with some challenging clipping points made for some great battles. The driving from everyone was top level and made it a real tough competition. We had a couple of car issues, which the team resolved very quickly. Very happy to take away the 3rd spot on the podium, and with the potential of coming back next year I can’t wait.
