Flankers in the City is supposedly the world’s first tandem drift in a live city. In this video, you can see top drift pilots Sergei Kabargin and Arkady Tsaregradtsev let rip in the streets of Saint-Petersburg.
Check out a cool Hyundai Drift Bus in this video.
Kabargin and Tsaregradtsev fling two Flanker-Fs all across St. Petersburg. Live city refers to the fact that the video was not shot in some abandoned town or on a movie set. 29 Productions, the video team behind the production were keen to leave people clearly visible in many scenes.
The cars featured in Flankers in the City are called Flanker-F drift cars. They are purpose-built by Evil Empire, one of Russia’s oldest drift teams. The bespoke creations make extensive use of carbon-fibre inside and out. Under the long bonnet of each car is a 7,3-litre V8 made by Racing Head Services. The engine is reportedly good for nearly 480 kW and 760 N.m of torque. Flanker-F refers to an old Soviet-era jet aircraft. You’d be forgiven for thinking the cars are the Swedish-built Zenvos.
