World Class Drifting!

by Kevin (kaiv)

This was at Autoclub Speedway on this past Sunday (05/06/2012).

After he got black flagged by corner workers, he goes "I see your black flag and I raise you one sideways lol" and proceeded to tear things up, lulz.

Enjoy.

LOL, nicely done! Can they permanently ban you from the track for a stunt like that?

I suppose... But, the event organizer knows that kaiv is an accomplished driver. Corner workers are hired by the organizer, and they sometimes change from event to event.

I do not understand why he would have been black flagged for that if he was in the advanced group.He looked like he had good car control.He really did not have very much yaw angle.

Sounded like he pulled the drift after being black flagged.

And yes track organizers get upset here on the east coast when you do this. It scares the crap out of the corner workers and the other drivers. Even if you are in 100% control.

I have heard #666 on the radio more than once

We had some zombies working the corners that weekend. Debris/Cones were a regular sight.

Kaiv, you're a madman behind the wheel.

Agree 100%. Although I must say, the M3 is going to give you the best shot at it in factory form. Assuming you have some decent skills/experience of course.

Oh yes! The car really wants to straighten up...it almost does it for you. You have to trust the car. My problem was I didn't trust the car and basically wrestled with the wheel until I spun.

It is amazing!

Yah it is really interesting. Even MDM will let you play a bit if you are abrupt with it. Throw it into a slide with sport plus throttle and it will let you counter steer...at least in low traction conditions like the wet. : )
