Drifting is more than just the art of controlling the car while going sideways, as it could also serve as a great form of entertainment. With that concept in mind, we have the guys at Speed City KL that organizes the weekly Saturday Night “Drift Assault” which does not only provide a safe and secure environment for the drifters to sharpen up their skills, but also for the spectators to get their dosage of sideways action.
But over at the Middle East, their definition of “entertainment” does not seem to be including the “safe and secure” factor as they simply turn a blind eye on such matter, caring only about getting the adrenaline rush. Previously, we have seen them doing their crazy “hagwalah” stunts in FWD cars, chasing away cops, and some even face beheading due to this reckless behavior. And now, here is a clip that will bring a whole new picture on this absurd phenomenon.
Other than using cars like the Civic or Accord, pickup trucks are also among the preferred rides for these death-defying drifters. While most of the clips that we have seen shown them going sideways with the crowd packing up the roadside, we now have a pickup truck making donuts in the middle of the crowd that was standing on the road itself.
It is hard to fathom how these guys consider this as a form of entertainment, where a slight mistake could definitely result in a horrible ending. But instead of keeping a distance from the spinning truck, they were gradually getting themselves closer to it; which even saw some missing the truck by a hair’s breadth. A great source in getting the adrenaline rush? Maybe. Being safe, smart, or anything similar to that? Not even close.
