While you were undoubtedly grilling and chilling over Independence Day weekend, the guys at Clubloose were celebrating independence in their own way.
Messing up on the notorious Nürburgring at high speeds is not easy to recover from. That’s what makes this “taxi” driver in a BMW 2-series MPV tackling some critical oversteer so damn impressive.
Alex Goy of Carfection got his mom in a Ford Focus RS with the intention to prove that anyone could drift the super-hot hatch. Luckily for us, she played along.
You may have heard the drifting mega-event East Coast Bash described as the “spirit of modern hot rodding.” Think cheap thrills and greasy fingernails. This video captures the rambunctiousness of drifting, while making the whole affair look downright pretty.
Please enjoy the following 40 seconds of American celebration including: AC/DC, drift mode, tire smoke, a V8, and red, (white) and blue between a Ford Mustang GT and a Ford Focus RS at Silverstone Circuit.
Nissan put the Japanese drift champion behind the wheel of a tuned, rear-wheel drive 2016 Nissan GT-R to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest drift ever recorded. The result: a 30-degree drift at insane 190 miles an hour.
I know that’s not what literally happened here, but it’s been so long since we’ve had an American in Formula One — indulge me, okay? Look at this pass and tell me that the Statue of Liberty herself isn’t weeping as we speak. It’s beautiful.
Ever wonder what would happen if you and your best friend moved to Mexico to put on motorcycle stunt shows and were then approached to run drugs for a Russian maniac, but had to prove your drifting skills first?
The StuntFreaksTeam guys from Finland are absolute mayhem on wheels. The only time they’re willing to ride with any of that whole “traction” thing is when they’re up on one wheel. Start your Monday off right, by wishing your week was over so you could go ride.
Two NASCAR El Spec Ute-aminos lighting up their rear tires to stay out of the wall is by far the coolest save of the year. Why eat wall when you can eat tires instead and keep going?
If nothing else, this video proves that pretty much any car looks pretty good mid-drift. I’ve heard the hard plastic wheels make the Cozy Coupe an ideal drift car, and pros will sometimes have 30 or more dads tethered on bicycles.
With turbo rotaries or without, Mike and his friends know how to put on a show.
Skip all the corny “It’s A Boy”/”It’s A Girl” stuff. What you really need to announce the impending arrival of your little one are the appropriately hued tires for your drift car and a massive smoky burnout. LongbowMkII brings us the best gender reveal ever on OppositeLock.
NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Jimmie Johnson claims he was trying to adjust the track bar in his car because it was too loose, but I know he secretly wanted more of that sweet, sweet oversteer. Johnson once again showed that he is a master of opposite lock in a situation that would’ve sent many other drivers into the wall.
Formula D driver Vaughn Gittin's dog seems pretty remarkable. He's amazing at pushing buttons, and, by implication, reading the labels on dashboard buttons. That's a hell of a dog. He also seems to like drifting.
German drifter Harald Müller just set a new Guinness record in Turkey after driving a Toyota GT86 sideways for 2 hours and 25 minutes.
Yes. Yes you can.
Touge is a Japanese thing that's easier to understand than tentacle porn or eyeball sushi. It's exactly what Norwegian mountain roads were made for.
It's simple. First, learn the Kiwi accent. Second, convince a certain Austrian energy drink mogul to give you tons of money for a crazy drift car, lots of tires and lots of expensive cameras. And that's it. It's just two easy steps.
