We take motorsport very seriously. From full factory works teams to grass roots motorsport, each brings a unique and important aspect to the BILSTEIN brand ethos. Each form of motorsport presents its own unique challenge and from these challenges competitors rise up and make their own mark on the competitive scene.
Luka Marko Grošelj is one such character and his chosen discipline is Drifting. He’s heralded among his peers as a pioneer of the Drifting movement in Europe and one of the most successful competitors. He’s been involved in the sport for the last 19 years and competed at the top level for 12 of them. His trophy cabinet includes silverware from all around Europe during his career. These include three consecutive Austrian Driftchallenge titles, two Driftcup championships plus both Italian and German competition cups to name but a few. This year we’re welcoming him as the latest driver to join the BILSTEIN team and we cant wait to see what 2018 has in store for him.
But there is more to Luka’s skills besides this; he was also a Mercedes-Benz-AMG drift taxi demo driver and as a precision drift/stunt driver too. But that is not all, Luka shares his vast experience with young drift stars at his own LMG Drift Academy. His passion for driving extends beyond Drifting and you can also often see him in Slovenian and international hill climb events, time attack rounds and rally stages.
One thing is for sure however, and that’s that Luka has an affinity for the BMW brand. Most of his completion builds so far have been highly modified BMWs. From an E36 GTR to an E92 M3 with a Liberty Walk body kit, it’s clear that a widened 3 series is Luka’s favorite formula. His latest car will come as no surprise then; also on the 3 series platform, but this time an E46 M3.
