This short covers the British Drift Championship, shot throughout the 2010 season. I particularly like the use of Al Pacino’s speech from ‘Any Given Sunday’.
Heavy attended the Octane Academy Invitational and got to ride along with and learn from some of the best drivers in the business: Vaughn Gittin Jr., Ken Block, Tanner Foust and Brian Deegan.
See Vaughn Gittin Jr., Ken Block, Tanner Foust and Brian Deegan in action at Ford’s Octane Academy.
You could say that firing automatic weapons and doing 360 degree spins at 80 mph in front of school buses and gas tanker trucks was reckless, and well, you’d be close. It’s insane.
Squeezing into a parking space in New York can be a bit of a hassle unless you’re Tanner Foust. Catch my drift?
Want hands-on driving instruction from Ken Block, Tanner Foust, Brian Deegan and Vaughn Gittin Jr.? Although it sounds too good to be true, the Octane Academy was created for that very reason.
2010 Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. is given complete access to the Al Reem Circuit in the Kingdom of Saudia Arabia.
Although this video is a little light on substance, it’s heavy on style showing the $375,000 Lexus LFA supercar in action.
Drifting a high horsepower 3,000 pound sports car…easy. Try it in a 10,000 pound purpose built Semi Truck….not so easy. Mike Ryan shows his skills on the original Gymkhana location at El Toro Marine Base.
This vintage racing footage shows drivers throwing race prepped Ford Escorts all over rally courses in the 80′s and 90′s. It reminds us that drifting has been around for a while…
Apparently, you can strap a long swingarm on a super bike and start drift racing. Who knew? But now that you’re drift racing, can you beat a car?
In some ways, well, very few ways, synchronized swimming was cooler than drift racing. That is true no longer.
