Sanctioned drifting in the US is held on racetracks and closed airport pavement. There's another way: hillclimb drifting, and it's everything you really want. Now it looks like Ryan Tuerck is going for it.
Tuerck is no stranger to sliding up hillclimb courses, as that's exactly what he did in his last big video, Off Seasons 2. That was at Vermont's Okemo hillclimb.
But all that is light compared to how they do hillclimb drifting in the Polish Drift Championship. They do sanctioned events over there, running two cars up the hill at a time. It's so popular that crowds line the guardrails and sometimes go into the road itself. The only way it could be less safe is if the cars were set on fire at the start of their runs.
Still, there's something about hillclimb drifting, and everyone would like to see more of it. So long as it was a bit safer than what's going on in Poland.
