Mazda and drifting
Drifting is a discipline for the sun rear wheel drive car, like the MX-5, and consists of the ability to check the car oversteer.
Unlike most car racing, in drifting it is the talent of the pilot to make a difference while speed takes on a secondary aspect. In fact, the two young drivers did not spare themselves, supporting each other in a door to door show, with blows skidding and spinning.
“I chose the MX-5 for my riders because it is a combination of design and technique. Thanks to its chassis and extremely sophisticated handling, it manages to create a unique driving experience: the car does what you want. This is the famous Jinba Ittai, the perfect bond between horse and rider, car and driver “ – said Pirini.
My grandfather, who collected racing cars, had them cleaned with buckskin in every single detail and I still remember my hand passing over their sinuous lines. I found the same feeling when I grew up on my first MX-5, they looked like waves. When I drove it then I felt the same emotion and it was love at first sight “,
