Yes, this is true for a track, and with drift cars without emissions equipment and suspensions designed for racing/drifting competitions. The drift cars cannot get passed so they have to be reasonably quick while still showboating
It's tougher to drift with high grip tires and a street suspension and without 400ft-lbs of torque at the wheels from some crazy catless turbo setup
In my experience low grip tires are better for this kind of thing on a street car
