    I'll start.... this is the best drift video on the internet. Ever.

    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

      What track are those guys drifting? They have a South Australian defect notice on them, is it Malalla?

      Another Bathurst one. Some impressive spatial awareness and racecraft from the whole field.

        Not sure, but I just love the whole attitude. Car is a piece of shit (mechanically it has like 350hp though or so I hear), but the guy has skills

              I agree, best vid ever. Just the I dont give a fuck attitude and skills displayed is amazing. Wish I had the finiacial backing and skills and a missus who would condone such behaviour

                Undoubtedly some brilliant skill & spatial awareness on show, but surely some of that is a little bit of blind luck... Great reactions and all that, but some of that late braking coming into turns on throttle and just not hitting cars in front is crazy. That cant all be skill! Car certainly handles though!

                He sure does... Great vid!
                The backing track definitely helps it though.

                What a race! There is a DVD on that whole season and everything leading into that race and indeed, that lap. Its called 'I, Superbiker'. Definitely worth a watch, if you can grab a copy. Watching that last lap has me sitting here literally grinning like a chesire cat. Big balls!


                Surely some of the Ken Block 'Gymkhana' stuff has to be up there...?!

                  The parts with all the trees certainly isn't. Mac Park near Mount Gambier possibly but never seen the track so not sure.

                    I'd watch the shit out of that if it was televised.

                        Aaaannnnddddd the answer is...... It's several tracks. There might be some footage from Mac Park in there although a lot of it seems to have come from Tailem Bend of all places. And that cool section where the pit complex is set into the forest isn't even Australia. It's the Ebisu circuit in Japan.

                        Another impressive video: Ari Vatanen in an Opel Manta at the 1983 Manx rally.

                        Impressive speed on narrow roads, impressive save at 1.55, impressive speed on a flat tyre.

                            Some of it is at Malalla and some at Ebisu in Japan.

                            I've drifted with these guys over a week in Japan and it's a lot of fun and not as expensive as you would think.

                            To also keep with the thread here's one of my edits from Ebisu ^_^ (I'm in the dark blue 180 with led helmet.
