Any event that attracts a team called “Super Loud Noise Problematic Racing,” was clearly made for us. Mobaru Twin Circuit’s Baridori event—“bari” from the “baribari” sound of loud bikes, and “dori” from “dorifto”—is a special place for Japan’s rowdiest grassroots racers to compete, and one man can do it all thanks to…
Mi Drift, an organization that puts on drift events in the Detroit area, is only about a year old, but you wouldn’t know if you’d attended the group’s Halloween Bash this past weekend, like I did. It was an epic display of tire-scorching Full Opposite Lock madness.
When the Ford Focus RS came to the United States, it captured our hearts not only because of its awesome hot-hatchiness, but also because it entertained the little drift demon that lives inside all of us with its Drift Mode.
Automotive proving grounds have all manner of delightful car torture tests that regular, non-industry folks salivate over. Rough roads! Steep inclines! Skidpads! Alpine courses! Pro drifter Fredric Aasbø finally did what we’ve all wanted to do at the UK’s Millbrook Proving Ground: drifted the Alpine Driving Course.
Drifting. You know, that thing where drivers get cars to go sideways and make lots of noise and smoke, destroying tires along the way. It’s spawned a whole sub-culture of modified cars around the world, and it’s now gotten a very fancy and legit FIA-backed competition.
Junkyards are heaven on earth to most of us, but pro drifter Chris Forsberg took his junkyard run a step further by setting up a few choice obstacles and drifting the whole thing in his new “Proximity” video. Let’s reminisce about all the once-good beaters in the background and watch some sweet drifts!
If you ever want to feel like you’ve wasted your entire life, look no further than drifter Nikolass Bertans. Bertans is only 12 and he’s already better at sliding around his car than I can ever hope to be.
If you’ve heard the name “Gridlife” but aren’t sure what exactly it entails, think of it as the Forza Horizon Festival in real life. On track you can see some seriously competitive time attack cars, a full three days of HPDE-style track experience, and most of the big names from the world of drifting getting sideways…
Few things are happier than a man and his dog. If that man happens to drift cars, naturally, he’s got to figure out a way to take his dog along for a ride. Behold, pure happiness in video form.
There’s no greater joy than taking a race car out on normal roads. Your car has the power to instantly make someone’s day—well, except the person who calls the cops because it’s too loud. But hey, it’s street legal, right? Pro drifter Ryan Tuerck went out for the day in his hood-less Ferrari 458 V8-powered Toyota GT86…
Irishman James Deane is currently sitting as the top qualifier for this weekend’s round of Formula Drift in Seattle, in a Nissan S15 Silvia. Back in 2013, he was wheeling a Mazda RX-7 on one of the tiniest tracks I have ever seen.
Everyone has that one road they drove over and over again as they learned how to drive and love cars. Formula Drift’s Matt Field made the pilgrimage back to his boyhood road and took his thousand-horsepower pro car with him.
Enjoy some of the most aggressive driving you will ever see, particularly in a car intended to slowly drive middle managers from home to office and back.
For as many drift videos I post on here, I have never learned how to drift. I’ve done donuts. I’ve gotten sideways on ice and dirt. But making a car turn tires into noise and smoke with style and grace in a lovely sequence of drifts? Nope. Now I’m being upstaged by a seven-year-old kid, and I’m ridiculously jealous.
Vaughn Gittin Jr.’s Mustang is an oddity in professional drifting; his RTR team sets his car up like a dirt track car, though he runs in Formula Drift. It’s called weight jacking and it produces what you see here. The car basically wants to lift a front wheel. Then it wants to wheelie.
Formula Drift is in Canada this weekend, running one of the most big angle, technical tracks of the season. This is what it looks like when you overcook one of the corners halfway off the ground.
The W211-generation Mercedes E55 is one of those cars you’d like to be chauffeured in. It’s a big behemoth of a comfortable automatic sedan. It’s not a car you usually associate with sweet dorifto action. So, drift it anyway! I’ve never heard tires scream in terror quite like this before.
If your drift car doesn’t come with a stereo system, never fear! Just give a musician a ride.
The idle thoughts of every young driver turns any old industrial part of town into an imagined race track, fully lit sideways in some sports car you can’t afford. Well, here are those dreams made real.
