A professional drifter explains the physics behind drifting

Car drifting is both a pastime and a profession. For hobbyists and professionals, the basic principles of drifting are the same. Toss the car sideways and hang on. We wanted to take a deeper look into the activity. We asked Leona Chin, a professional motorsports athlete, physics-aficionado, and "The Queen of Drift" for a break down of the science concepts behind getting a car to slide sideways on the track.
