Conducted like an actual day at the track, there's a practical classroom section with Pobst at a chalkboard, in-car instruction with Pobst at the wheel, and an interview with a professional drifter who explains how drift cars are different than normal cars. Pobst instructs on four different ways to drift: Leadfoot, Race Technique, Extreeeme, and Hooligan, demonstrating the difficulty of the lesson in the best way possible, by committing a blooper during one of them. Of course, Pobst also demonstrates how good he is by sticking his head out the window and talking to the camera during a drift.
This one's for a general audience, so don't expect heeling-and-toeing and a treatise on damper rate. It's only episode one, after all. But Pobst is a lot more fun to watch than we would have guessed, and we look forward to more. Check it out above.
