We can debate all day long on whether the ability to slide your car around corners with the tires spinning and a huge cloud of smoke is a real form of “racing”. But where we will probably find agreement in is that the art of drifting is definitely something that takes a lot of practice to do right.

So he headed to the Bondurant School of High Performance Driving where Formula Drift newcomer Corey Hosford was ready for a full day of instruction.
Three new Chevrolet Corvette Daytona Prototypes arrived in Daytona for two days of testing at the International Speedway as the GRAND-AM series prepares for its season opener at the 50th Anniversary Rolex 24 at Daytona on January 28-29, 2012.

Russo and Steele Collector Car Auctions has announced that this 1953 Corvette owned by Corvette restoration guru Noland Adams will cross the auction block next month at their Scottsdale event which runs from January 18th – 22nd.
