#Sideways Fridays: Bring Back the Touge

14th November 2013 | BY NSNP

Somewhere in Norway a film crew, a professional driver, a Toyota Celica and an attractive passenger all came together to make a film just 4 minutes long of the most perfect car porn we’ve ever seen. If it were an advert we’d already own what they were selling. Hit the jump to watch a finely crafted Japanese classic being threaded through the tarmac needle.

#SidewaysFridays: BMW 325 drifts to the top of a multi-storey car park

20th September 2013 | BY Adam

I remember watching The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift back in 2006 and wishing the scene in the multi-storey parking garage was shot with less CGI and more real talented driving.
Seven years later, my wish has come true as part of the short drift film “The Ugly Duckling”.

Tech: Black Smoke Racing Mercedes

6th September 2013 | BY NSNP

For those of you that have followed Black Smoke Racing via NSNP will know that the diesel Mercedes they have campaigned this year is a unique beast to say the least. Built around a car more suited to carrying the kids than sliding sideways, it would be an understatement to say there aren’t a lot of the standard components left in this antidote to the Jap drift car. Hit the jump for the full story of just what makes this monster move.

#SidewaysFridays: Mike Ryan drifting his Freightliner

16th August 2013 | BY NSNP

A few weeks ago we brought you all the news on Mike Ryan’s record setting Pikes peak Freightliner truck. Well here’s where that mad fusion of power and tyre smoke all started. Mike had been stunt driving and racing for a number of years previously but it was only when he was invited to Las Vegas did he really appeared on the drift scene.  Hit the jump to see the first ever time a truck was driven sideways in a full drift exhibition at the Formula D Championships and the prep it took to get it there.

#SidewaysFridays: Live free or die drifting

9th August 2013 | BY Adam

We’d love to be best friends with Ryan Tuerck…but at the same time, we’d hate for him to be our neighbour!

With more driveway burnouts, 100mph drifts, firecracker melons, topless chicks and cliff diving - watch his latest crazy “Day in the life of…” video after the jump.

#SidewaysFridays: Extreme Drifting

2nd August 2013 | BY NSNP

So we all know getting a car sideways at 90Mph around a race track takes big balls, and the drivers that can get big respect for it. But doing the same on a mountain road with nothing between you and oblivion but the amco takes cahoonahs the size of basket balls. Hit the jump to watch New Zealander Rhys Millen tackle 9 kilometres of the Rio do Rastro. One of the most perfect (and dangerous) pieces of road on the face of the earth.

#SidewaysFridays: Garo Haroutounian makes Falougha Hill Climb more epic than Pikes Peak

12th July 2013 | BY Adam

Whilst this isn’t technically drifting, Armenian hill climb legend Garo Haroutounian does spend a lot of the sprint very sideways in his BMW M3. This video of his insane run up the Falougha hill climb circuit makes Sebastien Loeb’s Pikes Peak run look positively sedate. Attacking the course at times with all four wheels off the ground, tickling the limiter on big slides and high speed sweeping bends make this one of our favourite driving videos this year.

Hit the jump for the madness…
