It's not like you think. It's not busy. Or rushed. Or frantic. There's no
chopping at the wheel, no exaggerated stabs at the pedals. In fact, it's
just the opposite: small, highly calculated and immensely precise inputs
direct the Genesis Coupe's trajectory. Rapid but relaxed steering
suggestions translate into dramatic changes in direction and speed. Subtle,
deliberate prods at the throttle and shifter blur the scenery on one side,
then the other.
This is cool control. This is engineered elegance. This is drifting done
right. This is what it's like to ride in the world's most advanced drift
car: Rhys Millen's 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe.
Of course the calm, collected ride inside is in ironic contrast to the
violence outside. But we're not surprised. We've ridden with Millen before,
during practice for the Pikes Peak Hill Climb years ago and around various
rally stages back in American rallying's glory days.
Since then he has won the 2008 Red Bull World Drift Championships, the
Formula D series title in 2005 and two Tires.com Triple Crown Drift
Championships. Not to mention multiple titles at Pikes Peak. That this guy
can drive is not the surprising part.
What is surprising is the level of preparation it takes to make a drift car
competitive in 2009.
