Its not about Motor Racing its about the ability to control your car with STYLE, timing accuracy and consistency all put together to achieve the greatest angle and highest speed in attempt to “out-driftâ€￾ your opponent. After all any one can do a burnout or a power slide though a turn since a lot a people still don’t know what drifting REALLY is.

Drifting is not for everyone and was never meant to be. Its all about having fun with your car, in a safe environment (off-street) while encouraging excellent car maintenance and modifications to achieve a neutral weight balance of the car to give a steady ride thus enabling the drive demonstrate his skills to the judges.

I say rock on DRIFT! :lol:

Drifting is good to watch if it is done by pro's - its the only good thing for a rice car to do - cause they can all do it so well - there was an episode on Rides - which is on the discovery channel - and it was unreal - it takes some real skill like any type of competitive racing!!
