Spread by the young Japonese drivers, that would spend most of their nights in mountain roads, drifting quickly spread all over different cultures, being nowadays known as a transversal way from the USA to Europe.
In practice, drifting is the art of producing controlled majestic drifts with long duration, existing a wide range of competitions of this kind in which the drivers and the machines challenge each other to show off the beautiful effect of drifting.
The rear-wheel cars predominate in this chapter, since skidding is more easily controlled with these. One of the most popular is the Toyota Corolla AE86 (known in Japan as ‘hachi roku’, translation of 86), but others such as Nissan Skyline, GT-R and Silvia, or BMW are also widely used.
In this list you will find seven drift videos that seem to challenge the laws of physics, but in which the goal is to escape from the obvious and usually starred by Ken Block.
