I'm an above averaging commuting driver, but it looks like it'll be a good idea for me to sign up for performance driving school when I get the M4 in. Goood reality check for me! I don't intend to go tracking that often, but I think in cases when I might "accidentally" drift, at least I'll know what to do.

You would have to turn off every single traction control system to allow the car to slide like it did in the video. But on the other hand a BMW class would be a lot of fun as well.
