Wikipedia defines the sport of drifting as…
…a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels or all tires, while maintaining control for the entirety of a corner. To get technical, a car is drifting when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle, to such an extent that often the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn…professional drifting competitions are held throughout the world and drifters are judged based on speed, angle, showmanship and link taken through corners.
Matthieu Currie hails from Montreal and drifts throughout Quebec and parts of Ontario as part of the Formula Drift Canada Series. And, as an AMSOIL Preferred Racer, Currie purchases AMSOIL products at a discounted price for his 1986 Toyota Sprinter Trueno (AE86). Heel-Toe Media recently caught up with Currie at his latest round this season.
