Tyres screeching, smoking, burning and melting as your car exceeds the confines of lateral adhesion…if you wanna take a corner with speed and style then the only way to do it is to DRIFT!
The black art of Drifting started in Japan, where drivers would take their tuned-up sports saloons to the winding roads of the mountains and take corner after corner at high speeds – without any traction! Recently however, its popularity has soared in Europe as petrolheads meet up under the cloak of darkness to get their hi-octane drifting kicks.
A legend in his own country, the Japanese ‘Drift King’ Keiichi Tsuchiya takes you on a clear and precise tutorial of how to e-brake, shift lock, power over, brake, feint and lift off. He’ll also tell you the correct tyres to use, and how to drift cars with different characteristics. A foot pedal cam and pressure indicators enables you to see exactly what he does, so that you’ll be drifting within days!
Once you’ve tried drifting, it will become your religion, and Tsuchiya will become your God. You’ll need this video then – it’s the bible.
