Drifting is the act of maneuvering a vehicle through corners at speeds and angles that exceed the vehicle’s grip. A drift is when a driver performs a controlled slide through corners while adhering to the racing line. It’s a combination of driving skill, style and showmanship. It’s all about loss of the rear wheel traction while keeping the race car in total control. Points are allocated on 4 main criteria: speed, line, angle and impact.
LINE - Drift within pre-designated zones to get extra points. The line is marked by several clipping zones where the driver must get as close as possible while sideways to increase score.
ANGLE - The more the better. Drift with style and try to get your car as sideways as possible without wiping out to gain more points.
SPEED - Always try to drift as fast as possible while staying in control. If you hit a wall or get off-track, you will lose your current combo score. If you complete the race quickly, you will gain additional points.
IMPACT - This is the show factor! It’s about entertaining the crowd and delivering an exciting performance. Make them cheer; everyone enjoys the smell of burning rubber.
