Drifting Goodwood

Drifting Goodwood

Much of the year, Goodwood is a idyllic and luxurious UK Estate. But once a year, it’s transformed into the home of one of the greatest car shows in the world. While it’s best known for its Hillclimb event, these drivers want to get us excited about this year’s new drifting circuit.

Ken Block’s Climbkhana

Ken Block’s Climbkhana

Stunt and rallycross driver Ken Block tears up Pikes Peak in the latest build of his Hoonicorn RTR – a 1965 Ford Mustang kitted out with a 1400hp engine, and shod in sticky Toyo Proxes R888R tires. He doesn’t take the fastest route, but he burns plenty of rubber on the way.

Tanner Foust: Quantum Drift

Tanner Foust: Quantum Drift

You might have to travel back in time to 1992 to find a parody of Quantum Leap relevant, but that takes nothing away from Tanner Foust’s mad drifting skills, the insane exhaust notes, and lung-filling dose of tire smoke and dust you’re in store for in the next six minutes.

Ken Block Drifts London

Ken Block Drifts London

With May, Hammond, and Clarkson gone, we’d much rather watch The Grand Tour than the new Top Gear, but we just had to share this extended footage in which Ken Block tore up the streets of London with his 1400 hp Hoonicorn Mustang, with Matt LeBlanc riding shotgun.

Mustang Drifts F1 Track

Mustang Drifts F1 Track

Get your daily dose of carporn with this clip from Ford Performance, as Vaughn Gittin Jr. takes his Formula Drift Mustang RTR through a bit of the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, linking two of the course’s awesome turns, and leaving behind an epic trail of tire smoke.

World’s Fastest Drift

World’s Fastest Drift

Nissan’s NISMO performance division teamed up with the tuners at GReddy to push a GT-R up to 1380hp, set all of its power to go to the rear wheels, then turned it over to the able hands and feet of drift champ Kawabata Masato, who managed to pull off a 30º drift at 189mph.

Ferrari F40 GT Farmkhana

Ferrari F40 GT Farmkhana

Serial supercar abuser TaxTheRich100 takes a break from hooning about in the dirt in street legal cars, and whips a tracked-out Ferrari F40 GT around the farm, doing donuts and drifts across the wet tarmac. Though he wisely avoids taking this car off road.

2015 Motorhead Hakone Hill Climb

2015 Motorhead Hakone Hill Climb

Motorhead magazine’s second parade at Japan’s famous drifting spot features Lotus and Benetton Formula One racers, a Toyota GT84, an Evora 400 and of course a handful of Nissan GT-R R35s. We think last year’s video was better, but we really can’t complain.

Mustang vs. Murcielago Drift Battle

Mustang vs. Murcielago Drift Battle

Vaughn Gittin Jr. and his 550hp 5.0L V8 Mustang RTR challenged fellow drifting vet Daigo Saito and his 650hp V12 Drift Lambo on the winding roads in and around an abandoned village in Niigata, Japan. Another awesome video from Luke Huxham.

Tow Rope Drifting

Tow Rope Drifting

From the “don’t try this at home” file, watch what happens when this car is tethered to the rear of a moving vehicle, while its occupants swerve recklessly across the road. Fortunately, the car they’re torturing is Russia’s abysmal Lada Samara.

Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 4

Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 4

(PG-13 Language) It’s been a while since ICON Motorsports tore up the roads for our enjoyment. ICON riders Ernie and Nick find themselves stuck in a rut, until Officer Dan sends them on a mission to get them back up on their mighty steeds. (Thanks Matt!)

Burnouts, Stunts, and Sh*t

Burnouts, Stunts, and Sh*t

Finland’s StuntFreaksTeam tears up dirt, dust and gravel as they perform burnouts, spins, wheelies, and more on their motorcycles. If that weren’t enough, there’s a drift car that wants in on the action too.

Helicopter vs. Drift Car

Helicopter vs. Drift Car

Daredevil Felix Baumgartner’s latest stunt has him behind the controls of an aerobatic helicopter, hovering dangerously close to drift racer Jakub Przygoński and his 1000hp Toyota GT 86, playing a game of vehicular cat and mouse.

Father and Son Drifting

Father and Son Drifting

Driver Anton Avdeyev likes to take his son Timofey for thrill rides in his Toyota JZ86 drift car, pulling mad G-forces and burning massive amounts of rubber. It’s an annual tradition, in which Timofey’s expressions keep getting better.

Real Car, Virtual Course

Real Car, Virtual Course

To promote its EDGE product line, Castrol enlisted Matt Powers to drift his 650hp Ford Mustang while wearing an Oculus Rift that simulated a course filled with daunting obstacles. Watch the 360° version here. BTS video here.

The Armless Drifter

The Armless Drifter

Bartosz Ostałowski lost both of his arms in a traffic collision in 2006. But that didn’t stop him from becoming a professional drift racer. He has a custom setup in his race car, but his daily drivers are unmodified.

Drifting a Tesla

Drifting a Tesla

Despite its tremendous torque, it’s not exactly easy to make a Tesla Model S go sideways, Japanese pro drifter Nobuteru Taniguchi proves that it’s at least sort of possible as he burns rubber in the electric executive sedan.

Driving Instructor Prank

Driving Instructor Prank

We’re not buying Leona Chin’s schoolgirl makeover, but when this professional drift racer gets behind the wheel with driving instructors pretending to be a newbie, the results are hilarious.

R/C Drifting in Japan

R/C Drifting in Japan

Kuma Films caught up with a group of talented drift racers going sideways around Yokohama, Japan’s WARU Circuit. But these guys can’t fit inside their cars, instead they hoon around the scale track using remote controls. (Thanks Todd!)

Motorhead Hakone Hill Climb

Motorhead Hakone Hill Climb

Motorhead Magazine assembled cars and drivers from various motorsports on the Mazda Turnpike in Hakone, Japan, where drifters and enthusiasts hone their craft. Masato Kawabata and his Nissan GT-R paid homage pretty damn well.

12-Car Drift Mob

12-Car Drift Mob

Formula Drift racer Ryan Tuerck and 11 other talented drivers took their cars into a syncronized drift around the track at Pat’s Acres Racing Complex in Oregon. While there was a little fender rubbing, the overall feat is spectacular.

Tractor Gymkhana

Tractor Gymkhana

Driver Rickard Nilsson and his racing team took another old tractor and turned it into a 225 horsepower driftmobile. Watch as Rickard hoons around, burning rubber, and only flipping the top-heavy vehicle once. We love roll cages!

BMW Driftmob

BMW Driftmob

BMW may be late to the flash mob fad, but they make up for it in execution. The carmaker had five Hollywood stunt drivers conjure a cacophony of squeals and screeches all over a roundabout in South Africa using the nimble M235i.

Semi Truck Gymkhana 2

Semi Truck Gymkhana 2

Behind the wheel of this powerful 2500hp Peterbilt semi is stunt driver Mike Ryan, as he does his best Ken Block impression hooning around between freight containers and evading capture. Ignore the acting. Enjoy the driving.

Sno*Drift 2014: Bonfire Alley

Sno*Drift 2014: Bonfire Alley

What could possibly be more exciting than rally racing? Rally racing through snow and ice! In this clip, we get a mix of exterior and POV footage and a little background on the traditions and community surrounding Sno*Drift. (Thanks Alex!)

Micro Gymkhana Six

Micro Gymkhana Six

A fun remake of Ken Block’s Gymkhana Six, driven with an 1/18th scale HPI Micro RS4 racer wrapped in Block’s Ford Fiesta body. Though there a few more consequences to hitting real life Lambos or Segway riders. Buy the car here.

Lexus Drift Roulette

Lexus Drift Roulette

We were recently in Vegas checking out the Lexus F-Sport line when this happened. Yes, that’s champion rally car driver Ken Gushi playing a little game of roulette by drifting in a Lexus IS F. It was even more fun inside the car.

Motorcycle v. Car Drift Battle 3

Motorcycle v. Car Drift Battle 3

Matt Sanders captures the release of Monster Energy’s Ernie Vigil and Nick Brocha after three long years in the pokey on 204 hp Triumph Daytona sportbikes – hotly pursued by a two lawmen in a road buggy and custom ride.

Semi Truck Gymkhana

Semi Truck Gymkhana

It’s not as nimble as a Ford Fiesta, but we’re still impressed with the tight turns, donuts and drifts pulled off by Michiel Becx in his semi. Those tire squeals are like music to our ears. Now who’s gonna clean up all that broken glass?

Car vs. Plane Drift Battle

Car vs. Plane Drift Battle

Pro drifter Dominic Tiroch and former Red Bull World Air Race champ Hannes Arch engage in a death-defying gymkhana match. Even better, they’re actually playing two games at once. Arch is one heck of a daredevil.
