The only traffic that I am usually dealing with are the cars that I am lapping & the Marshalls(who are paid to put up with us!).Oh I forgot about the white E93 digging himself out or red E92 mowing grass

Drifting?

I just don't get this - what are they trying to do?
I have spent my entire driving career trying to perfect the smooth is fast technique - obviously not well enough. But abusing equipment like these guys for what???? This is why we all get bad reputations!
