And like the driving itself, building the cars is an art form.
Like drifting itself, the ability to build a proper drift car takes plenty of skill and practice. People often make the erroneous assumption that a drift car has to have a lot of power, when in fact 200 horsepower is just fine. And what about appearance? Shouldn’t the car look the part? Then there’s the mechanics and engineering. It’s all about proper weight distribution and traction. These are just a few things that go into building drift cars, and Driftworks Limited knows a thing or two about this field.
First established in 2004, the company has quickly grown over the past decade to become an established player in the UK and European drift scene. XCAR recently sat down and spoke to company founder and driver Phil Morrison to discuss his profession and passion.
