As the name implies most of our members are professional Airline pilots.
The story begins when a few of us tried the MyWay www.driftschool.com in Hungary back in 2016 and instantly loved the sport!
Coming back to Greece we bought our first drift car within days and started practicing immediately.The old E30 gave us lots of fun and helped us progress in drifting before it finally broke down.
Back then our club was not as popular as it is now and getting to know the right people was not easy.Slowly but steadily more drivers got involved and after a few months our garage was inaugurated.
With the garage ready and with one of the best mechanics in the industry in our disposal the club started to produce top end drift cars.
As a professional drift racing team, Driftpilots offers all kind of experiences to drivers from “having fun” beginners lessons to full support for professionals wanting to compete in drifting races.
If you’re looking to rent a drift car,buy parts or just want to progress fast in drifting Driftpilots is the club for you!
Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, with loss of traction, while maintaining control and driving the car through the entirety of a corner.
The technique causes the rear slip angle to exceed the front slip angle to such an extent that often the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa, also known as opposite lock or counter-steering).
The sport of drifting is not to be confused with the four wheel drift, a classic cornering technique established in Grand Prix and sports car racing.
Drifting is traditionally done by clutch kicking, then intentionally oversteering and countersteering.
As a motoring discipline, drifting competitions were first popularized in Japan in the 1970s and further popularized by the 1995 manga series Initial D.
Drifting competitions are held worldwide and are judged according to the speed, angle, showmanship and line taken through a corner or set of corners.
