What is drifting ?

Drifting is a driving style in which the driver uses throttle, brakes, clutch, gear shifting and steering input to keep the car in a condition of oversteer while manoeuvring from turn to turn. The whole concept of  drifting started in Japan over 10 Years ago and now is the fastest growing motorsport in the world. Considered more of an extreme sport by some, drifting is scored by a team of judges on speed, style ,angle and line.It is common place to see two 650bhp plus cars side by side, swapping paint over 100mph sideways.Due to the compact nature of drift events, spectators can view the entire event from one vantage point, meaning they never miss a  second of all the action, unlike any other motorsports.
