Went to a drift day at Pembrey track a few years ago with Ray. Watching the attempts at drifting on one of the bends. A big variation in ability observed! Many Japanese cars there. They apparently have a big drift scene in Japan so parts to convert the car to drift are available.
There was a tyre guy there being kept permanently busy. Strong burning rubber smokescreens with pops as tyres gave up.
A few good drivers consistently creating smokescreens like a WW1 destroyer laying a smokescreen!
Scandinavian flicks to throw out the tear and throttle feathering clearly seen.

I know the C63 can be drifted..I've seen the "expert" do it at Brooklands. But me? Not a chance....
I'm not good enough and I can't afford to bin it.... or the tyres....

I've seen some crazies doing it at Goodwood but it strikes me as an expensive hobby, I don't blame you leaving it to others.

Quite right. The correct reaction of a Morgan driver to these sort of shenanigans should be to pull down his tweed cap, have a puff on the faithful old briar pipe, whilst muttering “when I were a lad, we used to take pride in how many miles we could get out of a pair of rear covers”.

Eh Lad, nice remoulded cross-plys as well.

I back in the early 70s I had a Ford 100E that I could easily drift, at very low speed, especially in winter: 20bhp and narrow hard (old) rubber cross ply tyres on a rigid rear axle and cart springs.
I suppose it is all down to the relative amount of grip and power, irrespective of the absolute numbers....

For this reason, I have completed a safety training where the rear axle is placed on a skid plate. The roadway, or rather it was a wide place, was sprayed with a kind of soapy water to earn control and car behave at low speeds.

It was hard to get my Sunbeam Rapier around any corners at all when it was on crossplys!
Mind you, I was 17......which is why the dealer had refused to sell me a TR2 I really wanted.

Thruxton used to offer advanced skills courses with a car that had a casters/pump unit fitted so it could simulate wet break away. An hour in that please a little time on the track in the new toy sound like a present for christmas from the good lady. Lots of run off area and no one coming the other way. Just wait until the rears are down low and need replacement then have some fun.

Given my old 2WD E63 had a habit of being a bit tail happy it could just save you NCB on a wet diesel covered roundabout one cold morning scared


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

I still feel sorry for them and the situation JLR created, but thread drift is TM normality
