drifting....That's of course when I'm not doing a smoky burnout while street racing. What a waste of good rubber and a good car.

Factory driver for DaimlerChrysler in a Viper Competition Coupe. Along with being a Skip Barber instructor, he's won numerous Swedish ice racing championships & a Touring Car championship. He's also instructed at the BMW M school in S. Carolina. You may not like drifting, but it takes a ton of talent to do it right.

Drifting is pretty hard on the tires, isn't it?

But in general it does teach you a lot about car control. During BMWCC schools at Mosport they use part of the parking lot for skidpad exercises. Most of the time it is taught by an experienced racer. You should see what he can do in our car. Then try the same and realise that you are not worthy of this great car.

that's the problem I have with drifting... looks fun and everything but how do you say one person is better than another?

Ice racing is pretty damn cool though. Saw Andros Trophy on TV a while back (pretty neat, Alain Prost was in there). Difference is, on ice, drifting is fast...

When I went to the Performance Center for my 2 day M5 school, we did lots of high speed drifting with DSC on and off....it was all done on a wet skid pad and it didn't kill the tires. There is a lot to be learned from drifting but not down to the tire's cords on dry pavement.

too subjective. I'm just defending the fact that it takes a ton of skill to do it well (not to mention doing it at the highest level).
Anyone can disable their DSC & slide around corners in second gear all day long. But to drift through a corner in third or fourth, at speeds approaching triple digits..... that takes commitment & skill. To do it over an entire course.........

Nobody I know of runs a dry skidpad if the cars are expected to slide a lot.

at a BMW school last October. Real nice guy and very talented. Good instructor too. He used to be a factory driver for Volvo in Swedish touring cars. Ran into him at Octoberfest, and got a couple hot laps from him at CA Speedway. We were sideways all through the infield. It was a riot.

As far as I can tell, he's a very fast driver. He happens to be very good at drifting and makes money doing it, so that's what he's doing.
