Virtual Drifting

Drifting is a relatively new motorsport that's sort of a combination of reckless abandon, ballet and road racing. Anyone who's ever run out in the snow just to go do donuts in the mall parking lot or drove the minivan around the back of Wal-mart with the kids while the wife was picking up milk to do some 4 wheel drifts with the parking brake in the snow … What, no one else does that?

Anyway, anyone ever done a donut in the snow and smiled can understand the appeal of piloting a car around a track mostly sideways. Of course, if you're good you still end up chewing up some expensive tires and throwing stones on your paint. If you're not good? Well, it could get decidedly more expensive.

This is the cheaper way. All you need is a Playstation 2 and Grand Turismo 4. Then you can practice your drifting in a whole variety of cars, most of which you'll never be able to afford, and replay the video of yourself. If you practice a lot, you might be as good as this guy. Very cool and fun to watch, check it out.

This my friend is a guy thing for sure.

I woke up this morning with that song in my head. :-P

Come on Milly, fess up. You're the one in the back of Wal-Mart (or is it Home Depot) doin' donuts with the kids while Hubby's inside, right?

The wildest was doing a 180 in an empty tractor trailer in the snow. Young, stupid and lucky I didn't wrap the trailer around a lamp pole. :-)

That's pretty neat, thanks!
