Controlled skidding is a driving technique that has been around for a very long time. Although the first official competitions held in Japan date back to the late 1980s, the first events of the sport in North America were held in the United States in 1996. However, it was not until 2004 that the national Formula Formula circuit D appeared in the United States. Here in Canada, fans of this new discipline began to take an interest in the sport in the early 2000s. Although it was not until 2003 that the first amateur controlled drifting competition took place thanks to DriftNation , the first event on Quebec soil was organized with the help of Québec Tuning magazine and some die-hard fans of controlled skidding
