Drifting is a high powered motorsport that requires highly practised drivers to control a 200 to 600hp car while it slides sideways at high speed through a closed, marked course. It is judged on execution and style without bumping or crashing. It has been around for some time now and provides some nail biting, thrilling moments in motorsports. This image was taken last year at the Formula Drift 2010 held in Singapore. I was trying panned shots but could not really anticipate the movement of the car and time the shutter speed accordingly when all the action is over in a flash. This is one of the better images. Too bad though, I couldn't get all of the car in and the cones got in as well.
