Drifting is the art of cornering a car using techniques that go beyond the realm of conventional racing line theory. Drifting is often done by professional drivers in specially prepared cars, but it can also be done in standard production cars.
Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing the rear end of the car to slide out. The driver then controls the slide by steering into it and using the throttle to maintain the car's balance.
There are three main types of drifting: power sliding, feint drift, and clutch kicking.
Power sliding is the most basic form of drifting, and is often used by novice drivers. The driver applies the throttle to cause the rear end of the car to slide out, then steers into the slide to control it.
Feint drifting is a more advanced technique where the driver uses braking and steering inputs to make the car's rear end slide out without the use of throttle. This is often used to take corners at higher speeds than power sliding would allow.
Clutch kicking is a technique used to initiate a drift without the use of throttle. The driver presses the clutch pedal, then quickly releases it while simultaneously steering into the turn. This causes the engine to rev up, which in turn causes the rear wheels to lose traction and start sliding.
Drifting is considered by some to be a dangerous driving technique, as it can easily lead to a loss of control and a crash. However, if done correctly, it can be a safe and exciting way to drive and progress your skills.
If you're interested in learning how to drift, there are several ways to get started. You can attend a drifting event or course, watch instructional videos, or practice on your own.
Whichever method you choose, always remember to practice safe driving and be aware of your surroundings. Drifting is a skill that takes time and patience to master, but it can be a fun and rewarding experience.
