Learn to drift from the pros: In Part 3 of the series How to Drift we’re raising the bar. Instructor Stefan Landmann is taking us on a drift track in the BMW M2 Competition. Here, it’s all about precision and a feel for the vehicle. Whether it’s a semicircle, circle or between the cones in the slalom section, what we‘ve learned so far in the first two parts of How to Drift comes to a climax on the drift course.
WHO IS WHO: STEFAN LANDMANN.
Racing driver, winner of the 24-hour Nürburgring race, instructor: Stefan Landmann seldom strays from the racing line. As a class winner in 2011 in the 24-hour Nürburgring race on the notorious Nordschleife, the thoroughbred race car driver conquered one of the most demanding racetracks in the world in a BMW M3 GT4. As a certified BMW instructor, the 30-year old Austrian is the right man in the right place when it comes to translating the fascination of racing to the road. “It’s a great pleasure for me to work with people who are as car-mad as I am,” says Landmann. “I’m happy to pass on my motorsport experience.”
