Drifting

A Pontiac GTO drifting.

Drifting is a flamboyant driving style which focuses more on visually impressive feats rather than speed. It occurs when the rear wheels start to slide away from the inside of the turn (like what happens during oversteer) but the driver maintains control. Sometimes all four wheels can slide, but it is important for the car to be sideways when this happens in order for it to count as drifting.
