The brutal battle for the Russian Drift Series crown
Drift racing is an extreme motorsport where drivers slide cars round turns in head-to-head contests at race-tracks or in empty parking lots.
Born on Japan’s winding mountain roads in the 1970s, drifting is now popular around the world. In Russia, enthusiasts compete on ice courses in expensively self-tuned vintage Ladas.
RTD follows Fedor Vorobyov from Moscow and his garish 1977 Kopeyka VAZ Lada from his first foray into winter racing to hair-raising collisions at the Russian Drift Series, in pursuit of a top-five position. During the race, he takes on four-time RDS East champion Ilya Fedorov from Vladivostok, who is venturing west for the first time with his mid-engine orange Nissan.
