Drift Academy and Techspan presents MSC Challenge NZ Championship 2023 in conjunction with Formula Drift Japan.


MSC Challenge was started back in 2006 in Japan by Kazuhiko Iwata who also founded Formula Drift Japan series. MSC Challenge focuses on the "Fun Comp" for drifters with all skill levels, very soon it has become very popular among the drifters in Japan. Through MSC challenge, drivers progress their skills in a fun and fairly level playfield.

MSC Challenge is a feeder series to the top tier competition Formula Drift Japan, where top drivers will be awarded with Formula Drift Japan driver licences.

At MSC NZ we will be awarding the series champion the Formula Drift Japan 2 Licence.

It's our pleasure to have the founder Iwata-san and Formula Drift Japan judge Robbie Nishida fully behind our events. The event will be livestreamed online so this is a great opportunity to showcase your skills to them and the world!!!

For the double final Round 3&4 we will also have Formula Drift Japan bossman Iwata-san, and Robbie Nishida FD and FDJ judge coming over to New Zealand and judge the events.
