Burning up New Jersey, Formula Drift Style
There are few spectator motor sports that are as much fun to watch as Formula Drift, as cars smoke their tires and go sideways around a short arena circuit for ultimate hooning dominance. In this clip posted by GoPro, we get to ride up close and personal with drifters Fredric Aasbo and Chris Forsberg as they battle in the Formula Drift Round 4 finals at New Jersey’s Wall Speedway.
It’s an incredible demonstration of man and machine as the cars drift so closely to one another without losing control. The only thing that would make the video better would be to remove the music and commentators and focus on the engine noise and tire squeal of the cars themselves.
