I’m forever wondering how people get good at what they do. I know they have accidents along the way. But obviously, they are still alive so they didn’t have accidents that were that bad.
When a guy is doing flips on a skateboard, how many teeth did he lose and bones did he break? When a gymnast is doing flips across the floor, how many broken necks has she had to endure? Those are the thoughts that go through my head.
With drifting cars, they get close. They get real close. Good drifters can breeze right by a wall and not even scrape it. But, how many times have they traded paint with something? How many times have they slammed straight into something?
Here’s one here. But, it’s not really the drifter’s fault. He was just practicing. The guy watching, doing all the clapping, he wasn’t watching where he was going and put himself right in the middle of the track. This is what that looks like when a car is going 80 mph and a guy puts himself in the way.
