THE HILL – Maxxis Tyres BDC Round 4

I’m a sucker for HD drift video clips, I would have to say I’m guilty of using at least 60% of my monthly ADSL cap on watching HD motorsport video clips. Last night I came across this video clip on the Driftworks website. This is a short film from the 4th round of the British Drift Championships at The Hill. The Sound Track in the HD film just makes the clip that much more dramatic as well! Check it out if you want to be inspired.

Drifting on the go

I was sent this video clip over the weekend of some buddy in Asia drifting while having a bit of a meal. Come to think of it, this brings a whole new meaning to “Meals on wheels”.
The Car he is drifting is a Toyota AE86 the food he is chowing looks like a Big Mac and Medium Coke, I couldn’t help laughing. You need to watch at least a little bit. What do you reckon could be more entertaining than this?

Drift Build – Nissan powered Hilux Drift Pickup

What makes this build completely different to others that you see posted all over the internet is that Nigel has built the drift machine from literally the ground up. He has built his own space frame to …
