WHO ARE WE
DRIVER On the year 1983 Juha Rintanen was born in Hämeenlinna, Finland and he got car-racing as his blood inheritance. With his father he learned to tune and fix racing cars and nowadays a lot of people turn to Juha about their techical questions. Juha is one of the Finnish Drifting pioneers and he is remembered from the first days Drifting was pronounced in Finland. After he won the Finnish drifting series, he’s fast-, precise- and agressive style of driving was also noticed abroad so he was invited to United states to drive the D1GP series with some of the best drivers in the world. At this point by his driving Juha has a licence eligiblity to any series in the world and he has got multiple invitations from Europe, USA and Asia as well. Faith in Juha and he’s team is so strong, that we’ve got a few mentors and godfathers to aid our cause. Kari A. Sohlberg and a former Formula 1 driver Mika Salo, whose son Max still thinks riding with Juha is more exiting..
DRIFTING as a sport In traditional motorsport almost always without exception the fastest car from the start line to finish determines the winner. It is here where Drifting makes the exception to other sports. Drifting is about Style and ultimate car handling skill at its best. The basic principle of Drifting is to make a rear wheel drive car skid through a predetermined course with as much sliding angle as possible, without the skid ending even slightly during the course. This performance is then judged by three judges which have their precise criterias in the drift angle, speed and maintaining the designated driving line. After the qualifying starts the competition, where two cars battle with eachother at the same time, first leading and then following the other car. The first car has to drive a perfect qualifying run and the following car has to mimic the lead car on its moves while still staying as close as possible. These tandem runs are the best part of the sport. The most exciting and amazing part, when the cars rally over the speeds of 150 km/h side by side, almost touching eachother during the multiple turns in the course and all that is left behind is just a thick cloud of tiresmoke from the rear tires. After the two laps the winner is determined by judges and the game continues playoff style until only a winner remains.
Most of all, Drifting is a show. It looks amazing and the crowd loves it. Drifting as a motorsport has been founded in Japan and it has spread explosively all over the world. This phenomenon has become one of the leading forces of selling automotive products as well as bringing other brands known to the people. Because Drifting looks so spectacular it has earned itâ€™s place amongst the crowd and media, especially in Japan, America and Asia, but now in Europe as well.
