Steve ‘Baggsy’ Biagioni is a professional drift driver from the United Kingdom who won the British Drift Championship in 2009. He started drifting in a Volvo 340 and in 2008 began competing in the Semi Pro class of the BDC in a Nissan 200SX S13. He finished sixth in the championship which allowed him promotion into the main Pro class, he then joined Team Japspeed and ended up winning the Pro championship outright in 2009.

He then switched to a rear wheel drive converted Subaru Impreza. The car was not competitive during the 2010 season with many mechanical failures preventing Baggsy from qualifying. In 2011 the Subaru had a 1JZ engine transplant which helped the car become more competitive, with a second place finish at the final round of the season.

During 2012 Baggsy was a regular podium finisher and ended up 5th in the final championship standings. For 2013 Baggsy left Team Japspeed and joined Acorn Motorsport Division, now back in an S13. His season got off to a bad start with a major crash at Lydden Hill, causing extensive damage to the car.

Baggsy is a Monster Energy athlete and features at Monster demonstrations across Europe. He featured in Idris Elba’s ‘King Of Speed’ show, teaching Idris how to drift in a Toyota GT86.

A passionate audience that continues to grow thanks to the participation in competitions not only the riders but also the biker rally and drivers of other categories.
