Fun isn't around the corner, fun IS the corner
Drifting isn't my thing, although it looks like fun. I notice it was on a wet track which I imagine helps with tire longevity, otherwise it seems as if you'd go through a rear pair of tires in a few sessions.

Where in Europe is there a high speed oval? I didn't know there were any in Europe.

As for me, I'd rather just go fast through the corners, like this.

This was at Lelystad near Amsterdam, the Netherlands, but there are a few in Europe: Papenburg, North Germany(Mercedes Benz Testtrack) about 45 mins driving from where I live...and even more, but dunno where...

Nice racing movie, that's what I do as well.
