ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED by street racers in Japan, drifting is one of auto racing’s flashiest disciplines. Drivers powerslide their way around a twisting course, earning points for the speed, style, and precision of their skids.
Tanner Foust, the driver in the video, is a two-time Formula DRIFT champion and an X Games gold medalist in rally. He’s also largely responsible for introducing drifting to the American mainstream through his work as a stunt driver in movies like The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (think of this clip like that, but without the painful acting).
You can watch Foust in the X Games this week, where he’ll be competing in rally and SuperRally.
