    To Drifters

    Did you get extra points if you could stop with the badges on the wheels aligned?

    I thought it was a myth until Tiff Needell took me out in an M3 at Thruxton and drifted it. Each time he came back with the BMW Center caps aligned

    I started writing a reply but couldnt find polite enough words

    Ash, keep in mind:
    To drift the rear wheels have to be rotating at least 30% faster than the fronts
    The outside wheels have to turn more than the inside to go around a corner
    Its not unusual to lock up 1,2 or 3 wheels at a time

    Not even Merlin could drive round all that.

    Docwra. Donít need to keep it polite. After what I said to you, I deserve it.

    My only experience of drifting is losing the backend of a single seater and waking up on the grass...

    Iím not allowed to do Palmer sports days now

    At least you were suitably impressed with BMW's centre caps.
