Drifting is an extreme sport involving controlled slides around a series of corners. Big horsepower cars, massive angle, heaps of smoke and door to door racing make for the most exciting motorsport you’ve ever seen!
While the majority of cars partaking in drifting competitions are of Japanese origin, there are no restrictions as to make and model which makes for some very interesting combinations! Generally the vehicles of choice are Nissan Silvia’s and Skylines, but there are massive following of other vehicles as well, with even Commodores and Falcons mixing in.
The lower technical regulations and vehicle restrictions mean drifting is a very affordable sport to get started in, with many people starting out with a sub $5000 car and working their way up. While still a relatively new category to the country, the sport is growing year by year as is the competitor field, which enables a more spectacular event each time!
