    Car drifting is both a pastime and profession. For hobbyists and professionals, the basic principles of drifting are the same. Toss the car sideways and hang on. We wanted to take a deeper look into the activity. We asked Leona Chin, a professional motorsports athlete, physics-afficianado, and "The Queen of Drift" for a break down of the science concepts behind getting a car to slide sideways on the track.

    Even more stupid than doing handbrake turns. An idiot in a big, ugly black 4x4 nearly demolished a house at the local shops car park by showing of ( a bit like Mr Clarkson ).
