Drifting is a craze that continues to attract more fans each year, both domestically and globally, thanks to the popularity of the Formula DRIFT series. Drifting is a motorsport where drivers get their cars going sideways as they speed through turn after turn, all while keeping in control and making it look good. Experience car control and style at its finest as you climb into the passenger seat with Formula Drift Champion Vaughn Gittin Jr. as he lays down some skid marks all over the Angel Stadium parking lot during Auto Enthusiast Day 2015 in this virtual reality 360 degree video.
