Drifting is pretty crazy at the best of times, with some of the most powerful engines and certainly the highest rate of tyre attrition in all of motorsport. Now take a crazy sport like drifting and give it to the Russians…

What you get is a video that’s casually titled ‘Fire Run’. A Nissan 370Z goes for a rip around Sochi in the Russian Drift Series with blazing results. The 370 begins erupting fire from its rear wheel arches as the smoking rubber catches alight. Not to be deterred and with his run at stake, the driver, Arkady Tsaregratdsev keeps on ripping as if nothing’s happening. Still, a crispy 370Z isn’t a bad price to pay for a roaring crowd, 88 points and fourth position. Crikey, what’s first doing to his or her car to secure the top spot...
