BMW drift gone bad bends a bit of tin

Published October 17, 2012

While attempting to drift his BMW on an oval track, the guy in the video below appears to have attempted more of a Scandinavian Flick rather than a drift. Either way, he misjudged a number of his actions and ended up backing the Beemer into a wall.

It would be so easy to make fun of the guy, but the reality is that he was doing exactly the right thing. He was learning how to drift on a track, and not on the street. As anyone who has spent time on a race track knows, there is a very fine line between success and failure when you are learning and the results of failure can be ugly. At least his oops didn’t happen on the street like this guy.
