Ben Hobson, a self-confessed  motorhead since birth, started shredding on his first dirt bike at just four-years-old. His passion for dirt bikes drove him to compete in the AMA series for many years, but it would be in 2012 when he discovered drifting that his love affair with motorsports kicked into high gear - it was like love at first slide!

In 2014 Ben sold his beloved Ford Mustang to help fund the launch of his drift career, but 10 years later it has come full circle piloting the 2024 Pennzoil  Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5-FD in his rookie season of the Formula Drift PRO series. Ben was crowned 2018’s Lonestar Drift pro-am series champion, a victory that not only validated Ben’s talent but secured him a Formula Drift PROSPEC license. For three-years, Ben honed his craft cumulating into an outstanding PROSPEC season last year with three pole positions and two race wins in the four round season, earning the series championship.

Ben was awarded with his Formula Drift PRO license with his championship and now makes the leap to the world’s premiere drift series joining the RTR Vehicles’ Drift Team for his rookie season in the Formula Drift PRO series.
