Since several years Hungarian Adam Kerenyi has been one of the top drifters in Europe. The Dotz teamrider is considered the best strategist on the track
Racing comes naturally to Kerenyi. The 35-year-old has taken the first full-throttle attempts on motorcycles at the tender age of five. Later he has learned the best racing strategies from Hungarian motorsport legend Janos Kesjar. After car slaloms and Streetfighter races he changed to drifting in 2006 and thus laid the foundation for an unprecedented series of successes in this trendsport.
His strategic access to drifting also made him one of the best sideway riders far beyond Hungary. The trophies he has accumulated at King of Europe PRO Series represent an impressive proof: He was the winner of the series 2009 and 2012, second in 2010 and 2011 and third just last season.
One of the most important tools in this incredible success story is the constancy of Kerenyi’s racing car: the Tomi Workshop-serviced, around 700hp strong BMW E36 with E46 front. The numerous motor adaptations include a M5 compressor, Wiseco racing pistons and modified cylinder heads. The engine has been set back by 40cm in order of a better barycentre. The racer is more reliable than any other car in the top class of European drifting.
