The exact origin of drifting is not known, but it is suspected that it dates back to the 1970s, when the first drifters in Japan began. Drifting is a driving technique in which the driver sends the car into a corner ‘diagonally’. The car is deliberately brought into oversteer and kept there for as long as possible.
The sport of drifting is more popular than ever! Many of the professional drift cars are equipped with engines that have to perform under high pressure. Wilmink Performance can supply various parts to equip the cars as completely and properly as possible. Pistons, connecting rods and gaskets, among others, are popular product groups in drifting.
