  • What is it?
    Drifting started in Japan, over 30 years ago
    Drifting is were a driver purposely put the car into a Oversteer.
    Drifting is controlled by Throttle and Counter-Steer (If your technique is good you can control a drift by near throttle only (using the cars balance to drift))
    Drifting started on the Touge of Japan (Mountain Passes) by just some people trying to find the fastest way down the mountain
    Drifting is now an extremely popular motorsport and is also used in Rally Racing combined with power slides.
