The organizers said, “We organized this drift battle in order to exchange experiences between Mongolian and Russian racers. Drifting has been developing fast in Mongolia in recent years. Drifting has already developed in Russia. Russian athletes are taking part in international racings events such as D1 and Formula 1. We invited Russian racers because Russia is the closest country to Mongolia.”
