We got here right here for the leap, not even sorry

Final yr, a courageous previous BMW spinoff automotive made a small run on the planet well-known Estonia rural.

As such, it’s doubtless that you’ve got heard of the Kehala Ring, also called "Air Drift".

In case you have not seen the video or need to see it once more, press the play button above. It was the primary time that an actual drifting competitors was happening on the rallycross observe and, given the welcome acquired, the native organizers determined to start out another time.

Nicknamed the "Rollercoaster from Hell", one of the best drifters from Northern Europe had been invited to participate within the first spherical of the North European Zone (NEZ) championship of 2019.

The Kehala ring could be very technical and has many bends and modifications in altitude. Within the first laps, the groups struggled to find out one of the best suspension settings. Drivers approached the leap part with warning, with the hardest loaders taking on solely just a little air.

If the suspension is just too mushy, it’s possible you’ll bounce again and lose traction. do it too arduous and your fingers crossed between your elements can stand it.

Sadly, issues went fallacious for a number of opponents. Urmo Täheste was all concerning the leap, nevertheless it seemed like one thing had damaged off in the course of the touchdown, throwing the as soon as – clear BMW E34 with a Viper V10 engine on the wall.

Over the past half hour of observe, driver confidence was a lot better, as had been jumps. I’ve by no means seen a Supra fly up to now.

Nevertheless, if I needed to hand a reward for essentially the most spectacular leap, it could be as much as Henri Kivimägi.

Drifting is an thrilling sport in any respect ranges, however in Northern Europe it’s transferring from the grassroots stage to the next stage.

What do you suppose – ought to jumps be a part of all drift tracks and occasions?
