Here's a reason to dislike drifting - mass carnage of beloved vintage or near-vintage RWD Japanese cars, many of them coupes. There's lots of AE86 Toyota two doors, I lost count of Nissan 240SXs, and when a 3rd generation RX-7 did its impression of an empty soda can, I nearly shed a tear. Were it not for the carnage, I'm finally starting to come around on the thrills that drifting can provide. It's still juvenile, but racing as a broad category will always have some level of direct communication with our inner 12-year-old. That's how racing works; it's what turns perfectly good 35 year old men into giggling schoolboys in short pants. It is impressive to watch the drivers float the cars through long sweepers, tail askew, and it almost (almost) makes me want to try it. Maybe with a media car. Check out the crack-up action after the jump.

      Whew...That was hard to watch. Now I get why D1 competitions only do two cars at a time.

        I totally, totally agree. Whoever thinks this is a sport is messed up. Fanboys: come to Winnipeg, where this is known as 'driving in the winter', not drifting. Talent? As if.

      If they hadn't shown that one shot of the announcers, I would've sworn that it was Gilbert Gottfried swearing in Japanese on that vid.

      Its almost like dance with cars.
      More akin to X games competition than auto racing.
      Drifting is what Freestyle Moto is to Motocross for cars.

      Drifting=utterly stupid.

        NASCAR is nearly as useless. Give me F1, SCCA, or WTCC any day of the week.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Wow, you must think NASCAR is Spectacularly Smart!
      • 7 Years Ago

      I was pretty disappointed in the video. I was expecting all the cars to get crushed into a cube at the end. Maybe with the drivers still in them.

      All I think about when watching this is Homer Simpson dancing around saying, "I am so smart, I am so smart, S-M-R-T. I mean, S-M-A-R-T." While his house catches on fire.
