Drifting competitions are judged based on line, angle, speed and show
factor. Line involves taking the correct line, which is usually announced
beforehand by judges. The show factor is based on multiple things, such as
the amount of smoke, how close the car is to the wall or designated
clipping point, and the crowd's reaction. Angle is the angle of a car
and more importantly the turned wheels in a drift, speed is the speed
entering a turn, the speed through a turn, and the speed exiting the turn;
faster is better.
The judging takes place on just a small part of the circuit, a few linking
corners that provide good viewing, and opportunities for drifting. The rest
of the circuit is irrelevant, except as it pertains to controlling the
temperature of the tires and setting the car up for the first judged
corner. In the tandem passes, the lead driver often feints his or her entry
to the first corner to upset the chase driver, however in some European
series, this practice is frowned upon by judges and considered foul play,
resulting in deduction of points.
There are typically two sessions, a qualifying/practice session, and a
final session. In the qualifying sessions, referred as Tansō (単走:solo
run), drifters get individual passes in front of judges (who may or may not
be the final judges) to try to make the final 16. This is often on the day
preceding the final.
The finals are tandem passes, referred as Tsuisō (追走:chasing race).
Drivers are paired off, and each heat comprises two passes, with each
driver taking a turn to lead. The best of the 8 heats go to the next 4, to
the next 2, to the final. The passes are judged as explained above, however
there are some provisos such as:
Overtaking the lead car under drift conditions is ok if you don't interrupt
the lead car's drift.
Overtaking the lead car under grip conditions automatically forfeits that
Spinning forfeits that pass, unless the other driver also spins.
Increasing the lead under drift conditions helps to win that pass.
Maintaining a close gap while chasing under drift conditions helps to win
