Just for grins

We are racing in Atlanta this week with Trans-Am and Formula Drift. I had to post a quick video of an E46 I saw running practice today. Fun to watch them get together twice.

Must just be me, but I don't understand drifting. I'd rather watch a straightaway and some turns at Road America than watch somebody burn off tires just because they can.

Yep. I don't get it either. We try to actually get through the corner without scrubbing speed. It must be a Gen X thing... ***128513;

Our Trans-am C7 was hitting the 8600 RPM limiter at 189 MPH on the back straight leading into this very same corner these drifters are using during their "performance". Turns 10a and 10b at Road Atlanta.

I am not a huge fan of drifting, but, I can appreciate the skill level involved. Anything that gets the younger generation into motorsports, even if it is not my style, is ok with me.

It sure looks like a zombie apocalypse happened in San Francisco to be so vacant.
