Drifting in Poland is huge!

Drifting is quickly catching on around the world at an incredible rate. It started in Japan, then it came to America. Soon to follow were the Saudis with their insane "Saudi Drift". Now drifting has fully infiltrated Poland! Just as popular as rally once was, drifting is said to be the new "people's sport". The following video does a great job at capturing the essence of drifting's global saturation. People of all ages love the sport, but who wouldn't? Watching a car slide around is quite spectacular, coupled with the loud sounds of an engine bouncing off the rev limiter is totally euphoric.

According to wikipedia, "Drifting is refers to a driving technique and to a motorsport where the driver intentionally over steers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels through turns, while maintaining vehicle control and a high exit speed." Although it sounds easy, drifting is actually quite difficult and requires a lot of practice, dedication, and patience. You can't just jump in any car and drift it either; you need a rear-wheel drive vehicle that is well balanced and nimble. Sure you can technically drift anything, but most drifters choose RWD sedans as they are cheap, capable, and easily modified.

The most iconic drift cars are actually from the middle to early 1990's. Most drifters prefer the Mazda RX-7, Nissan 240, and the BMW 3-Series. Why? The short chassis and well-balanced attitude of these vehicles coupled with an easily modified engine with a vast supply of aftermarket performance parts create a perfect template for any drifting enthusiast. Tighten the suspension, beef up the motor, and adjust your camber; you are ready to drift!
