Adrián Cabanillas is competing in DriftSpain for the 2024 season

EBC Brakes is proud to support a large number of professional drifters across the globe in various series – many of which are performing at the very top of the grids they find themselves in.

For 2024, the company is supporting 16-year-old Adrián Cabanillas as he competes in the fiercely fought DriftSpain series.

Cabanillas, part of Team Find4u, will pilot his E36 BMW at various circuits across Spain throughout the year. His car boasts EBC’s Bluestuff pads and GD discs on both front and rear axles.

You can read how his first round from Jarama Circuit unfolded in Team Find4u’s own words below.

“In mid-April, Jarama Circuit was not only the scene of exciting competitions, but also the impressive debut of Adrián Cabanillas in the Spanish drifting championship, DriftSpain. Adrián, at only 16 years old, demonstrated his skill and mastery driving his BMW E36 with a 220bhp V8 engine, and stood out on a track considered complex for lower-powered vehicles, with more than 25,000 attendees making the stands shake.

“On Saturday, Adrián secured a position among the 16 qualifiers out of a total of 40 drivers, achieving an impressive ninth place in the past qualifiers. Throughout the weekend, Adrián and his car were also a central part of our official event sponsor stand. This presence provided an excellent opportunity to bring the world of competition closer to attendees of all ages and highlight the latest innovations from the brands.”

“On Sunday, the atmosphere was even more electrified with the start of the Spanish Truck Championship, whose engines of more than 1000bhp complemented the excitement of the battles in the Semi Pro and Pro category. Adrián Cabanillas shone throughout the day, showing great skill in each battle, both in chase and lead positions. His excellent performance took him to the final, where he was crowned champion of the Semi Pro category, becoming the youngest driver to win a DriftSpain event.

“As Adrián’s sponsors, at Find4u, we feel deeply proud to support such an exceptional team and to be part of this exciting adventure. We extend our congratulations to all the brave pilots who demonstrated their courage throughout the weekend.

“We hope to continue the excitement at the next Volrace Drift Master, which will be held from May 10 to 12 at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit. See you at the track!”
