the Second year of successively Federation of automobile sports of a city of Moscow is possible impossible — to back out at the city authorities the whole area in downtown area for carrying out of competitions on driftingu. And if in 2009 « to smoke on Lubjanke » 12 representatives of Russia and Ukraine this year drifters obviously tried out this dish &mdash prepared only; the figure of participants was calculated already by three tens.

basically it it is no wonder, after all last year the International festival driftinga was self-supporting competition, and in this season it was a part of informal national championship — Russian Drift Series. Anyhow, but also the national railroad train extended at the expense of representatives of Belarus and Latvia.

the line on Lubjanke did not abound with turns — as it is no wonder, after all on so limited site it is difficult to invent especially twisted search pattern. However participants did not complain, for many the fact &mdash was important; with impunity prohvatit in drift before FSB building before eyes of tens representatives of traffic police and the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the expensive costs.

Technical progress is not necessary to Drift-kary-2010 on a place, and for a year in domestic driftinge passed serious progress. Almost all fans of steered drift equipped the cars with security skeletons, and some even reached construction in general special drift-karov. So, Evgenie Satjukov from Moscow sported a pickup made of the sporty coupe of Nissan 200SX, and Felix Bekerman acted on a rear-wheel coupe on the basis of Subaru Imreza WRX N11.

But as a whole the auto fleet of drifters was not strongly interchanged — its basis all same rear-wheel coupes of Nissan, Toyota Mark II and Altezza (it constitute Lexus IS300 of the first generation). Certainly, on a line on Lubjanke there was a favourite of public of Fedja of Sparrows on VAZ-2105 VFTS which this year got huge interkulerom — from last year under a cowling of its machine there lives motor SR20DET from Nissan Silvia.
