VIDEO: WITH 260KM/H WHEELSPIN, COULD THIS BE THE WORLD'S FASTEST DRIFT?

If we're being totally honest here, we never even knew there was a Russian drift scene, but if you are one of the select few fans that follow it, the name Nikita Shikov will probably be very familiar to you. If not, then Shikov is a Bridgestone ambassador and sponsored by tuning outfit ToySport, and of course a Red Bull athlete.

He managed to take his 800hp Rocket Bull 86 to the Russian Sochi Autodrum circuit, which has the longest and fastest corner in Formula 1, spanning a distance of 750m and attempt to drift the entire corner in one go. Watch this video as he attempts this insane fate, intitiating the corner at a mind-boggling 170km/h with his tyres doing a 260km/h wheelspin while powersliding. Now go try that in your Prius!
