I'm planning to get a 330ci BMW whilst in uni, but wanted to know if people are still in to drifting? The state of the local roads makes me think otherwise

Happens on some car parks up here but nowhere near as often as it did ten years ago.

Police have cracked down on car meets pretty heavily.

Check out Drift Inc on Facebook. They have drift track days at Pembrey Circuit roughly once a month I think. Seems pretty well attended.

There's still a following for track drifting but spinning your car in a tescos car park isn't as popular.

See that's my assumption, Tokyo Drift would have ended differently when they skidded into a pothole the size of a dog and barrel rolled into a crowd before they got dragged out the car and stabbed as terrorists. :rolleyes:

Yes, as an avid fan of the car community, i can assure you that a lot of people are. There are several meets dedicated to just drifting. I would recommend meets like South Sitting or Drift Inc. personally

There's some tracks dedicated to Drifting in the UK. I've found myself quite enjoying Driftland, up here in Scotland.

I do assume you're talking about doing it on a track, and not on the road. I witnessed an accident, not too long ago, where an absolute moron in a clapped out E46 3 series decided to stick his back-end out on a roundabout, and crashed into the side of another car carrying kids.

Doesn't matter how good they are, doing it on a road is reckless and selfish, because other drivers aren't anticipating it so cause an unnecessary risk.

Yes but finding tracks to do them on is hard to come across, and police sit at most meets now and they won't hesitate to hand out 3 points on the spot.
