Shot in Saint-Eustache, Quebec, by videographer Keven St-Pierre, this thrilling footage shows drift event the Maple Leaf Bash where drivers are encouraged to burn rubber and have fun.
Drifting involves drivers approaching corners at speeds up to 140mph and then intentionally oversteering, resulting in the vehicles taking on the turns sideways.
Filmmaker Keven followed the Wide Open Drift Team, who brought their three highly modified Nissan 240SXs to take part in the two day festival of carnage.
And fans certainly appreciated the team's choice of theme, which involved painting the cars like the famous Nascar film Days of Thunder.
Kevin said: “Having a background in oval racing and being automotive passionates, the team decided to paint each of their cars just like the old Tom Cruise racing film.
“This ended up being really funny and a lot of people from the crowd recognised the theme.”
He added: “This a grassroots drift event with only one goal - to bring everyone from the drift community together and have a good time.
“This is not a competition, only pure fun with different obstacles on the course and camping on site.
“The cars are known as drift missiles, meaning they are used for practice and enjoyment, when the drivers don't care about the car and even damage them on purpose.
“At the end of the weekend, only one car was still working, but the fun we had was totally worth it.”
