In racing, it is the clipping of the apex of a turn to attain higher corner exit speeds. This achieved by breaking the tire traction limit and putting the car into a controlled skid. As the vehicle slides, the weight shifts from each tire to another, and causes the car to circle around and clip the apex.
Popularized by the anime "Initial D."
They call keiichi tsuchiya the Drift King because he drifted in touge battles.
