Balance & Control!

D1 RX-7 & Skyline Twin DriftingDon’t know what drifting is? You’re not the only one. Most people never even heard about it. Still though, bit-by-bit it’s becoming more and more mainstream every day now.

It doesn’t matter how big of a petrolhead you are, we’ve all seen the car chases on TV where cars overspeed in corners and go sideways.

They lose the back-end and spectacularly manage to speed through the corner with the car completely sideways. (or not)

Remember those car chases on TV? Drifting is just that! The term refers to the car being in a condition of oversteer.

Rather than just simply losing the back end and correcting it to save yourself from crashing, like on TV, it's all about trying to remain in a state of oversteer, sliding the car throughout the whole corner. By taking the most exciting elements from motorsports a complete new type of sport took off!

After the history of drifting of 30+ years or so, it has become tremendously popular across the whole world.

It’s most definitely the most exciting way to express yourself in motorsports, because it demands just so much car control from the driver! Going through a corner sideways just fills you with adrenaline and gives you an incredibly rewarded feeling. Unless you mess up of course!
