Run The Wall - Ebisu

Drifting is a lot more than just breaking traction; it's a precision art that sees drivers perfecting lines through corners whilst also balancing the optimum drift angle for the required entry/exit combination, and 'running the wall' is a key part of this. Drivers attempt to slide the back end of the car past the circuit's safety walls with millimetric precision - given the high speeds involved, this realistically often involves them smashing straight into the walls but, of course, this just proves how committed they are.
This video shows it all going on at the Ebisu circit in Fukushima, which is a spectacularly beautiful forum for this sort of carnage to take place. Enjoy.
