    That's not drifting. That's entering the turn a bit spicey.

    Yup. That's not really a drift.

    but it is as close as you can get in a fwd car. None the less, it is a bad ass vid.

    looked more like a rear brake bias when entering a turn caused the ass end to get squirly

    No, actually it sucked. If someone was on his ass, he would have been passed right then and there.

    Very true. A good run would have followed the perfect line with apex against the inside curb somewhere, all at maximum speed without losing traction.

    Yup. Watching it again, he went in too much on the inside, and apexed too early... if you can call that an apex.

    the turn would've been ok had there been a turn right after though.. but with a straight afterwards a more subtle entrance/higher speed exit would've been better right?

    Depending on the direction of the second turn, yes. That turn looks like a normal 90 degree turn, so entering on the outside and apexing right in the middle would have been ideal, although you can change up your apex a bit to suit your driving style... but going as early as he did just makes you look like you forgot there was a turn there.

    That guy is the national champ for his class, he has pants of steal. If he would have let up off the gas, he would end up spinning out.
