Drifting, a sport born in the hills of Japan has become the world's newest and fastest growing form of motorsport.
This spectacular extreme sport involves keeping your car in a constant over steer slide through a section of corners while achieving maximum speed, style and angle in front of drift judges.
More recent movies such as "Fast N Furious Tokoyo Drift" have helped make the sport popular around the world
The first Drift South series began in July 2006.
With huge support from the Canterbury Car Club, 5 drivers got together and formed the "Drift Committee". The club backed the idea of the series and Drift South was born. Still part of the Canterbury Car Club championship, Drift South has developed into one of the most entertaining and enjoyable Motor racing series in the South Island.
