To many people, drifting is a skill and delicate artform that is extremely satisfying to perfect. The delicate balance required to sustain power oversteer on a circuit requires exceptional car control and an understanding of both physics and your car.
Since the sport’s inception in the late 1980s, we’ve seen it spread worldwide with giants stars like Ken Block showing us some of the more awe-inspiring examples of the craft.
The Japanese, though, are to many the undisputed masters. Understandable, since they invented it. If you have any doubt about this, watch this video below where drifting is taken to another extreme with the reverse entry.
Corner entry speed is so high and the angle of oversteer is so obtuse that the tail is actually wagging the dog. To achieve this, maintain momentum through the corner and transition to the next without stopping or swapping ends is a whole other level of driving brilliance.
Check out the video below, but don’t get any stupid ideas.
