DRIFTING VIDEO: Le Man 24 epic Audi R8 safety car drift!

Posted by Andrew Jennings on 2nd July in Drifting Videos.

I spotted this hilarious Initial D edit of the epic Audi R8 safety car drift from this year’s Le Man 24 over on Black Flag, Jalopnik. To quote the original post:

Practice during 24 Hours Of Le Mans got a bit wet Thursday night, sending the Audi R8 safety car into an out-of-control fishtail. Except by “out-of-control fishtail,” I really mean “perfectly controlled full-oppo drift.” It was epic.

Enjoy!
