"We Do Sideways Here"

The title is an ironic take on a classic reprimand of "...we DON'T do sideways here." by a Porsche Club of America official to our own CG who had "dared" to hang it out during a PCA track event. No such problems at the Scuderia Hanseat driving school as on of our favorite international tracktard heros, Maxige, shows in the clips below. In case you wonder why, after some 50 years, people still love 911s... I believe the answer is right there.

Scuderia Hanseat is a driving school program at the Nürburgring, it's a multiday course which ends with a final exam. You can read about it here

    Serious question: 'Drifting' is aka oversteer, right? Aren't you by definition going through the corner slower than you oughta be?

  2. Crid, you are technically correct but you gotta have a little fun once in a while, right?

    In fact, why risk binning it trying to extract every tenth in the wet when there are no throphies for the Track Day World Championship.

  3. well, if you want to get all technical about it, I would depends. Almost every "vintage" car would go faster with the appripriate amount of yaw. Modern cars too corner with a certain amount of yaw at the limit. As long as the axis is properly aligned and within range, you'll go faster.....if it isn't you'll just have more fun :)

    Guys, I understand what you're saying. I mean. this girl was in the Tokyo Drift movies even though she isn't, y'know, licensed to drive in real life.

    I get it. A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.

    Just sayin'.
