Drifting – the art of defying a car’s traction into a controlled slide sideways around corners at breakneck speeds – is still below the radar for a lot of Americans, but the sport continues to grow nonetheless. Sound confusing?

Tracing its origins back to

on Japan’s winding mountain roads in the 1960s, drifting was a full-fledged and heavily funded motorsport in Japan by the 1980s. It arrived in the United States in the late 1990s, and has been gaining in popularity ever since, boosted by the cult following of the Japanese Manga/Anime series Initial D. This summer, American movie-going audiences will get hit with a full dose of the drifting phenomenon with the third installment of The Fast and The Furious trilogy, subtitled Tokyo Drift.
