For the past couple of years I have had some fascination towards the art of drifting. I’ve always wondered what really goes on inside of the car and whats going through these guys heads when they are behind the wheel. The closest I’ve ever been to anything drifting was when my friends would try to do it in parking lots when I was 15 or ten feet behind a movie screen watching the cast of Fast and Furious drastically pull e-brakes and shift gears for no reason.
Thanks to our good friends Ceso and John over at Formula Drift, my requests were made into reality! I got the chance to head out to Irwindale for Media Day and Ride alongs with a couple of the drivers. As we proceeded closer to the track the anticipation of getting into one of the cars started to get pretty intense especially because every car sound like a dinosaur with a jet engine inside of its throat.
Thats not fog that’s the smoke from the tires.
For those of you who have never seen a unicorn, here is one in the flesh
