STEVE ‘BAGGSY’ BIAGIONI

Steve ‘Baggsy’ Biagioni has been in the driving seat since he could reach the pedals. Hailing from Upminster in Essex, Baggsy has come a long way since helping his dad fix karts in the British Championship, and is currently one of the hottest prospects in Drifting to come from UK shores.

Having learnt his craft at a young age on two wheels and four – Karting and Motocross – Baggsy has achieved success in every series he has raced in. In the eight years he has been competitively drifting, Baggsy has won the British Drift Championship, and become a force to be reckoned with in the UK and European drift scene.

Last season was his biggest yet. As well as making demo appearances at the FIA World Rallycross Championship, Gymkhana GRiD Series, and Monza Rally Show alongside Lewis Hamilton and Valentino Rossi, Baggsy achieved notable success in the acclaimed ‘King of Europe Drift Pro Series’.

Baggsy and Idris struck up a unique friendship while filming for King of Speed, and Idris asked him personally to help out during this series.
