Catherine Coleiro a.k.a Driftcat was Australia’s first professional female drifter starting in 2003. She still holds the highest placing of any female in Australia’s PRO series… 4th in the 2005 National Pro Championship. That same year she came 1st in the NSW State Championship.
She was the only female competitor for the first 6 years of Australia’s professional drifting series and the only female to have top 4 finishes in 4 states, VIC, NSW, SA, QLD.
In 2013, she made her international debute… she was invited to Chile and placed 3rd in the DriftChile GrandPrix 2013. As a result from that, she was also invited to join Sweden’s Team Raidopower Motorsport at Gatebil, Norway. Then another great opportunity came up, Driftcat was invited to drift a demo and take passengers for GT Drift in Beijing, China. One of those passengers was Olivier Bouley, a world class automotive designer.
Driftcat is based in Australia and she now drift’s, the first of its kind, a purpose built Australian made Holden Commodore VK-L V8 LS1 Twin Turbo 610HP drift car.
Her aim is to take this car oversea’s and drift around the world!
