START YOUR ENGINESJarod DeAnda, the Voice of Drift and the MC for Red Bull Drift Shifters in Auckland on December 6 presents four of his favourite drifting videos to get you fired up for the action.
1. Ryan Tuerck
“This video is National Geographic meets drifting,” says DeAnda. “Tuerck’s S13 Nissan looks and sounds awesome in the great outdoors.” Tuerck is one of 16 drivers from the US, Japan, Australia and New Zealand who’ll compete at Drift Shifters in Auckland.
2. Daigo Saito
Feel what it’s like to sit behind the wheel of a drift car in this clip featuring the legendary Japanese driver, Daigo Saito. The killer remix of the Outkast song Bombs Over Baghdad is an added bonus. Saito is sure to be one of the crowd favourites in Auckland.
3. Chris Forsberg
Forsberg is another of the high-profile names coming to Auckland and this short clip of the American star drifting in a warehouse gives you some idea of the car handling skills required to be a world class drifter.
4. Formula D, Indonesia
“One of my most favorite videos ever,” says DeAnda, “this captures the emotion and atmosphere of the drifting community and gives you an insight into the different drivers, vehicles and vibes the sport has to offer.”
