Go carts, that weird Australian racing on ESPN 9, that awful Fast and Furious movie and Japanese street racing crap - there I see lots of drifting.
Is this drifting craze because of that stupid Top Gear show or something?
HOW CAN YOU BE HERE AND NOT LIKE TOP GEAR. HEATHEN
There hasn't been a "sudden obsession with drifting". Maybe you just recently noticed/discovered it, but it's been around for forever. Hell, rallying has always involved drifting/sliding around gravely bends.
American movie/media makers just decided to throw more of it into their films because lets be honest, seeing a car go sideways is more exciting than seeing it go straight... go straight... go straight... turn slight left... go straight...
