Late last year, Wheels24 reported on South Africa Juan Stemmet representing his country at the FIA Intercontinental Drift Cup in Japan.
Stemmet may be one of the best drifters in SA, but in Japan one could see how far ahead the game is to what we're seeing locally.
However, while this may be the case, Raziek Rajah (race master and founder of Drift Outlaws) knows that drifting locally is not as advanced as that of its international peers, but what Drift Outlaws and other local drift series are achieving is not to be scoffed at.
Drift Outlaws, especially, has the support of several big sponsors, including Red Bull, the City of Cape Town, and Total. This allowed the series to grow over the last couple of years and garner a great amount of success across SA.
While Drift Outlaws are making big waves, there are motorsport fans who are not aware of just how drifting works. Rajah took to social media to explain how the sport and its scoring system works.Compiled by: Charlen Raymond
