The elusive question of how fast a Ferrari can get around the Nurburgring isn't going to be answered with this video, but hey, there's plenty of drifting!

BMW is challenging technological progress against human skill in a new video. The company wants to know if a drift champion can hold a slide more consistently than its own autonomous M235i.

Autoblog Heads To Englishtown For a Crash Course in Drifting Culture

Car Club USA travels to Englishtown Raceway Park to document a wild Friday Night Drift Party at Club Loose. We hear how Club Loose co-founder Matt Petty brought drifting to the northeast U.S. from Japan decades ago, and how this small New Jersey car club has produced international drifting champions like Chris Forsberg.

The Porsche 918 Spyder was never intended to go drifting around the snow and ice in Finland. However, with the aid of a set of studded snow tires, the supercar looks fantastic doing it.

Three guys from Finland's Stunt Freaks Team drift in the snow with a Triumph Daytona on snow tires, a Porsche 911 GT3 rally car and a Polaris snowmobile. Because Finland.

In July, Harald Müller notched a Guinness World Record by drifting longer than any lone tire-burner ever had: 89.55 miles. This month, Nissan Middle East broke the Guinness World Record for the longest twin drift when two drivers slithered through a figure eight for 17.7 miles. The feat came about to commemorate the opening of the Nissan 370Z Drift Experience in Dubai, which will teach eager punters how to abuse slip angle, but the actual drifting was done with two 350Zs.

We've seen the diminutive Mazda MX-5 Miata swallow plenty of big engines, but New Zealand drifting ace "Mad Mike" Whiddett is roaring into where-no-man-has-gone-before territory. Wanting to replace his 515-horsepower "MADBUL" RX-7 and its twin-turbocharged, three-rotor 20B engine, his new ride is an NC-series Miata with four rotors and twin Garrett turbochargers courtesy of Pulse Performance Race Engineering. It is called "RADBUL," and expected power at standard boost is 1,200 hp, but the builde

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Ken Block must spend a lot of time blushing. At this point, the videos online that parody or take inspiration from the drifter's Gymkhana series vastly outnumber his authentic output. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though, as some of the clips are nearly as good as the original in their own way. Case in point: last year's Ken Box Gymkhana had a guy on a Razor Crazy Cart covered in a cardboard box with dubbed-in sound drifting through a wa

There are many reasons why an XJ-generation (or really any other) Jeep Cherokee doesn't make for a good drift machine. It's tall, it's four-wheel-drive... it's a Jeep, okay? But someone apparently forgot to tell that to this guy.

Meet the Ford Mustang RTR Spec 5 Concept, a fully functional drift car that, according to our team in Sin City, has been doling out demo drifts in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Many people tolerate a lot of distractions while doing their jobs and still get things done. Chris Forsberg is a veteran drifter who is very accomplished at his profession, but the question is: just how good? Forsberg's stripped car doesn't have any incoming texts, but there is a guy next to him putting a Taser to his chest.

We have entered a drifting arms race. Last year, BMW smashed the Guinness World Record for the longest drift by hanging the tail out for 51.3 miles around a wet skid pad in an M5 at the BMW Performance Driving School in South Carolina. That beat the previous milestone of nearly seven miles. Now, Bimmer's record is up in smoke as well and is in the possession of a Toyota.

A Nimitz-class American aircraft carrier is big. Really, really big. After all, it has to be, in order to launch and recover a wide array of military aircraft. But when it's not catapulting F/A-18 Super Hornets and E-2 Hawkeyes into the wild blue yonder, what exactly can you use its 1,040-foot long flight deck for? Well, BMW seems to have an idea.

After spending four days practicing about a dozen drift stunt moves in a parking lot for an upcoming BMW "Drift Mob" internet mini-film, Rhys Millen, Sam Hübinette, Dai Yoshihara, Rich Rutherford, and Conrad Grunewald are finally ready for show time. We are brought to the huge urban traffic circle to see the stunts performed midway through the day to observe for a couple of hours.

Generally speaking, marketing and journalism don't mix, but every now and then, what goes into the marketing of a car – the 2015 BMW M235i, in this case – is worth documenting. In that spirit, we took BMW up on its offer to bring us behind the scenes of its upcoming "drift mob" video, starring five red M235i coupes frolicking around a traffic circle in a major world city (BMW has asked us to be coy about which one so as not to blow its cover before the shoot).

Okay kids, here's your lesson for the day. When you go to a motorsports event (that isn't a rally), there are these things called walls. They're big and hard. There might be stacks of tires in front of them. There are also these things called barriers, catch fences and run-off areas. They exist to protect you, the spectator, when something inevitably goes wrong on the track.

Normally in our Crowdfunding Combat series we pick two similar Kickstarter projects and pit them head to head against one another in a winner-takes-all combat to the death (minus the whole death part), but not this week. In this edition of Crowdfunding Combat we will take a look at three new-age tricycles, the urban mobility-inspired Me-Mover and Halfbike, as well as the showier Verrado Electric Drift Trike by Local Motors.

Well, it looks like Local Motors has blown by its fundraising goal for its Verrado Electric Drift Bike by a cool $6,000 so far. Riding sideways, of course. As it should be.

Here are just a few great drift cars: Toyota AE86, Mazda RX-7, Nissan Z, Nissan Silvia, and Ford Mustang. One vehicle you won't find on that list, however, is the Infiniti M, because it's a big, heavy luxury car.

So, it's a safe bet that the following video is the craziest thing you'll see all day. Maybe this week, and quite possibly, this month. It stars, in no particular order, a drifting Freightliner semi driven by Pikes Peak champ Mike Ryan, a dock worker/stuntman being pulled behind said semi, a Ford Crown Victoria driving on two wheels, a drifting Nissan 240SX Coupe, two ramps, a row of Smart Fortwo minicarsand the Long Beach harbor. Yes, this is the sequel to the original "Size Matters."
