Saloon Drifting

While full-on professional drift builds can bring about a gazing in awe experience to the crowds, perhaps we should shed a light on what it means to drift! and what really happens behind the steering wheel.

Drifting

a high skill “extreme” sport, only drivers who are committed and constantly practice enhancing their techniques can pull off safely and with style. Drifting is the fastest growing forms of motorsport in the world today.

How drifting works

A car is said to be drifting when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle, and the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g., car is turning left, wheels are pointed right), and the driver is controlling these factors. You may think that drifting is the same thing to a power sliding, but drifting is more complex than that. Instead of a drifter causing a drift and then countering to straighten out, he will over-counter, so his car goes into another drift. A good drifter can take five or six opposing turns without having traction at any point in time.
