Tudor Dunev start as new IDS driver


It was not in his home country where Tudor Dunev discovered his passion for motorsports. In 2000 he started for the first time in the VW Lupo Cup and even in the same season he won the title in the junior class. One year later he took part in the Ford Puma Cup. Here he created a foundation for his racing career and after the season he was ranked fifth.

After his success in Germany Tudor decided to compete in the Bulgarian Touring Car Championship. He also had a lot of success and won four titles in all classes.

But in 2008 he decided to try something new. Drifting fascinated him and so one year later he took part in major drift events. Events like “Drift Wars” and “King of Europe” were some of the most popular competitions. With each race he managed to finish in the Top 3 and in “King of Europe” he finished the complete season with a 3rd place.

As the Bulgarian Drift Federation (BDF) was established, he was selected as a chairman and so Dunev Motorsport was the main organizer of the “King of Bulgaria” drift series.

In 2010 some more victories followed: In the European Drift Championship King of Europe he finished two times with the first place and in the end he became the overall champion. But all his success is due to his father Bontcho, who gave this talent to his son. Also the cohesion under the drivers was also important for his success.

In 2011 he decided to build a new drift car. His team built a Nissan 200SX S13 with a RB25DET engine from a Nissan Skyline. With 600hp he started in the season 2011 and had a lot of victories. In autumn he traveled to England to participate in the JDM Allstars Drift Series. In the famous Wembley Stadium Tudor made it to win against the Formula Drift Champion Daijiro Yoshihara. He came all the way from the States and was very impressed by the high quality of the drifters. Tudor finished in Wembley with a good 4th place.

In October Tudor traveled to Germany to participate in the European Drifting Championship of the IDS. A lot of drifters from all over Europe competed and so for him it was not easy to beat his rivals. Unfortunately the steering failed in the semi-finals and so he just made the 4th place.

The last event in 2011 was the “Drift GP Romania”. In front of the Parliament in Bukarest 45 of the best drifters in Europe and Australia wanted to take the victory. In the end he finished with place 9 of the 16 best drifters.

In this year, Tudor will attack again and he will also participate in some IDS events. So you can be sure that the 2012 season will be more exciting than ever. Above all, the races abroad will offer new challenges. Tudor wants to master the season together with his team and is looking forward to some great events.
