    Video: Watch Hoonigan thank us all for doing what we do best
    1340052960

    Say what you will about Ken Block. The guy knows how to have some fun. He's also pretty good at selling clothing. The hotshoe's latest move to sling t-shirts flies under the Hoonigan banner, where vehicular antics of every sort can safely gather. The crew has worked up a best of compilation video ...

    Video: Scion gets sideways with first FR-S commercial
    1339086660

    So there we were last night, quietly minding our own middle-class American business in a middle-class American restaurant chain when the first 2013 Scion FR-S commercial stormed in on one of the establishment's many televisions. And we do mean stormed in – the audio was noticeably louder ...

    1339070400

    We shouldn't have to wait much longer to officially declare that the Ken Block Gymkhana franchise has gone from viral to pandemic. With more than 134 million views for the four videos in the series, it feeds off itself now and has ejected its spores into fashion, toys and an entity called ...

    Video: NOS energy drink presents the mini-doc Keep Drifting Fun
    1337299080

    Drifting's been off the front pages for a while, the latest reports having more to do with turmoil than tire shredding. As with most things, though, just because it's not headlining doesn't mean it's disappeared. NOS energy drink sent one of our favorite filmic chroniclers, Will Roegge, across ...

    Video: Well That Didn't Take Long: V8-powered Toyota GT 86 drift car undergoes testing
    1333151760

    Cash-strapped enthusiasts may not have had much to get all sticky over from Camp Toyota in recent years, but the automaker's new GT 86 / Scion FR-S coupe promises to mine a rich paystreak of driving enjoyment. And while we're big (okay, huge) fans of the car's low-speed dynamic thrills, not every ...

    Video: Drifting returns to its mountain roots... in Poland
    1329509640

    We'll be honest: We miss drifting. Not the polished, sponsor-laden, energy-drink soaked Formula D. We miss the seedy internet shaky-hand cam videos of Japanese drivers slinging their hand-built machines up the mountain side in the middle of the night. Poland, of all places, has sought to marry ...

    Report: Irwindale Speedway cancels all 2012 events, will likely be shut down
    1329236940

    For the past decade, Irwindale Speedway has played host to a variety of events including Formula Drift, the Global RallyCross Championship and NASCAR's K&N Pro Series West.

    Video: Watch this Nissan 240SX roll during a drifting exhibition
    1327607880

    Probably the less said about this video, the better. According to the video uploader, the event takes place during the "Still Ballin' Car Club Nite Out" (yes, really), but we aren't sure if it's a proper race or just for show. Heck, we can't even figure out where the event took place. At any ...

    Video: Nissan-wielding Bloodmasters wreak havoc on Raceway Park
    1327105740

    At some point, drifting made the shift from counterculture revolution to the sponsor-laden vehicular equivalent of figure skating. We're not sure when it happened, but we certainly miss the days of watching grainy videos of mountain pass heroes piped over from Japan. The Bloodmasters crew seem to ...

    Video: Rhys Millen hoons it up in Hyundai's old headquarters
    1323979080

    "Wouldn't it be cool to do something outrageous inside [our old headquarters] before all the walls finally came down?" Why yes, Hyundai, it would. "Why not put Rhys Millen, his Genesis Coupe drift car, and our abandoned HQ together for a unique drift demonstration in a unique ...

    Video: Will it drift? Yes, the 2013 Scion FR-S will drift [UPDATE]
    1323705600

    The Scion FR-S may not be big on power, but Toyota and Subaru engineers have delivered a lightweight, rear-drive coupe at what should be a palatable price point. That sounds like a recipe for track day fun if you ask us, or you can watch the post-jump video for visual evidence. One drifter as he ...

    Video: Kenneth Moen drifts a hillclimb with his bonkers Toyota Supra turbo
    1318618620

    Nothing incinerates a perfectly good set of tires better than a drift car. And no drift car makes as much smoke as Kenneth Moen's turbocharged Toyota Supra. Yes, Ken Block turns out some great videos with high production values and plenty of tail-wagging craziness... but wait 'til you get a load ...

    1317236280

    Mike Ryan is our kind of insane. Not only did the man fling his Freightliner race truck up the winding side of Mount Washington earlier this year, but the professional stunt and race driver has also joined forces with drifting legend Sam Hubinette for a little exhibition show during round six of ...

    Video: Middle East drifting daredevils go beyond the bounds of sanity... in family sedans
    1316536200

    As a genre, automotive journalists have seen (and done) some pretty stupid things done in some pretty stupid cars. Collectively, we've been airborne in more vehicles than are worth counting, roasted enough tires to make Al Gore weep, and generally made asses of ourselves on closed-course ...

    1316188620

    Drifting isn't a real sport. So sayeth the peanut gallery that thinks drifting is just a bunch of wheel-spinning youngsters who've watched way too many selections from the Fast and Furious library. I'm here to tell you that it's very much a sport, and the men and women behind the wheels of their ...

    Video: Camaro airbag spontaneously deploys while drifting
    1313359140

    Having a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS stuffed with a 426-horsepower V8, six gears and the rear wheels doing the pushing is reason enough for anyone to want to get a little sideways. Trouble is, letting the tail hang in your 5th-gen Camaro could get pretty uncomfortable. During a drifting session in ...

    Video: Motor Trend gets sideways with Lexus LFA
    1311202620

    We can always rely on the good people at Motor Trend to stir up some genuine jealousy thanks to their excellently crafted videos. The team recently got their hands on the Lexus LFA and took the V10 monster out to an abandoned Marine base for a little frolicking in the wide-open spaces. They were ...

    1309389900

    We're suckers for well-shot automotive videos, and our friends at Autoblog Canada (eh?) came across a good one. Filmmaker Stephen Brooks spent time at New Jersey's Wall Speedway to take in a Formula Drift event, and left with plenty of good stuff. His lens work is sharp, his footage is ...
