Sport car automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

Although the origin of drifting is not known, Japan was one of the earliest to have drivers engage in a drifting competition. It was most popular in the All Japan Touring Car Championship races. Motorcycling legend turned driver, Kunimitsu Takahashi, was the foremost creator of drifting techniques in the 1970s. This earned him several championships and a legion of fans who enjoyed the spectacle of smoking tires. The bias ply racing tires of the 1960s-1980s lent themselves to driving styles with a high slip angle. As professional racers in Japan drove this way, so did the street racers.

It's the opposite of the traditional racing and what cars are actually designed for. But it offers great thrills and oh joy of joys when you successfully connect two or more consecutive drifts ! Drifting has become more and more popular and many fans want to try it on their own.
