Ability to maintain momentum while turning, with the turning not affecting direction of the drift (much). Such as a car with which the driver intentionally loses traction for.
Alternate names: Oversteering, Fishtailing, Powersliding
Name variations: sliding, skidding
The first video game about Drifting was released on November 1998.
Although this is a common part of certain car sports, this can also be done with airplanes (via supermaneuverability) as well as spacecraft and watercraft (mainly with PWCs).
Drifting is a required component of Newtonian physics in space flight simulators.
