    had my first time drifting properly yesterday in my mx5 (not a one corner job like in the old bmw). I must say, i still feel shakey and full of adrenaline right now! Did everyone else feel like this when they first started?

    (it wasn't on the streets either, it was at Teesside Autodrome... I got told off for it as i don't have a roll cage yet, but i think it was worth it!)

    So is this the right feeling towards wanting to drift REALLY badly? because if it is, now i see why you guys love this shit so much! :D

    Pictures can be posted when i get them emailed too me!

    Thanks,
    Callum.

    After i did my first "drift" i went out and felt a naked stripper.

    I felt i had earned it.

    shamefully no, Teesside isn't back... My mate was having a private testing session there and i was aloud out on track in the mx5. He wasn't bothered about me doing a little bit of drifting on my own.

    Yep, that's pretty much why we go drifting.

    Wait untill you start looking for the "next" buzz - it pushes you to do some crazy things yo.

    Yeah thats the buzz!

    You'll be hooked now and like bizzle said, it'll make you do some crazy shit. Like try and scrape your road car down a wall at a drift day you "only popped along to".

    Nothing better than the feeling of your first drift!

    Well maybe a couple of things are a good match for excitement..lol

    You have got it nailed mate.

    I spend half my life on track doing all kinds of grip driving experiences.

    But last Sunday drifting at Buxton I felt just as you describe.

    It must be something like the surfers feel catching that wave, or other extreme sportsmen feel.

    But that's the buzz, a special thing!
