Three Pro Drifters Go Sideways in Latvia (w/Video)

Watch them drift around a Soviet missile base

Jonathon Klein

In the latest creation by Donut Media, an abandoned Soviet-era missile base in Latvia serves as a playground for professional drifters Ryan Tuerck, Kristaps Bluss, and Matt Powers, who are wearing region-appropriate attire. According to the group, the trio used an E92 M3 with a supercharged V-8 making 800 hp, an E46 M3 that develops 950 hp from another supercharged V-8, and a twin-turbocharged V-8 350Z at the bottom with just under 800 hp.

As you'd expect, hijinks immediately ensue. The three drivers slay tires with massive burnouts, "ram" each other's cars, perform tandem burnouts nose to nose, drift through overgrown brush and old roadways, slide through a narrow alley of timber, and engage in lovely tandem drifts in what appears to be a an old roundabout.

To top the package off, Powers pulls off an amazing 360-degree drift in the 350Z, which is captured from three different angles.

While we're not sure that the Politburo would have approved of such western capitalistic shenanigans and the misuse of vital materials, we know we'd like to see more.

Can you make your car waltz around a city street or wooded backroad like Ken Block? Probably not. Of course, the inability to hold hundred-foot all-wheel-drive slides and place a front wheel within millimeters of a dock drop-off hasn’t stopped tens of thousands of Gymkhana fans from imitating their rally hero, on- or off-camera. Most do so with a modified

One of the most common flexes among the biggest automakers is to squirrel away examples of their best and rarest work over their history to eventually show off those pieces as an anthology.

Roll racing is having a moment – or at least it was before COVID hit and shut down a year’s worth of events. The motorsport phenomenon that we first noticed through the likes of Texas2K two-plus decades ago and a few other copycat events around the country since had some momentum heading into 2020 before

In order to get the full story of Garage Active, and its animated founding father, you would need more than just a single feature. In all honesty, you would probably need something along the lines of the Lord of the Rings sized trilogy, complete with all of the spin-offs, behind-the-scenes extras and perhaps even that
