DRIFT THIS World Premiere March 6 Exclusively On The MotorTrend App

MotorTrend is making everything go sideways in the all-new series DRIFT THIS, premiering around the world on Wednesday, March 6, exclusively on the MotorTrend App. Hosted by drifting pioneers Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck, DRIFT THIS explores how to make improbable vehicles—from a UPS-style truck to a stretch limousine to bumper cars—drift. Using creative engineering, custom fabrication, and pure brute horsepower, Forsberg and Tuerck combine professional racing knowledge with creative insanity to make vehicles drift and, on occasion, blow one or two up in the process!

On every DRIFT THIS episode, Forsberg and Tuerck try to answer the question: can professional racers make unique cars, trucks or other vehicles drift? Both hosts are legends in drifting, a driving style in which a driver uses the throttle, brakes, and steering input to make a vehicle go through a turn sliding sideways. Forsberg and Tuerck currently compete in the U.S. Formula Drift racing series, where Forsberg has won three championships.

“Chris and I are super excited to launch our new show DRIFT THIS,” said co-host Ryan Tuerck. “We’ll do our best to make some unusual vehicles do something they were never meant to do. We’re going to build, boost, and break things and then see what drifts.”

On the first episode, “Deliver This!” Forsberg and Tuerck tackle the challenge of drifting a UPS-style delivery truck with more than 280,000 miles logged, an expiring engine, soggy tires and no ignition key. Upon inspection, Forsberg and Tuerck lay out a plan to radically change the driving dynamics by upgrading parts across the vehicle, including a new engine. But, after six days of rebuilding the vehicle, will all that effort make it go sideways? DRIFT THIS premieres Wednesday, March 6 on the MotorTrend App with a new episode every four weeks, and bonus content released weekly.

“DRIFT THIS pushes the boundaries of drifting by putting an unexpected, crowd-pleasing twist on this popular automotive genre,” said MotorTrend Group’s Vice President of Development Mike Suggett. “Chris and Ryan are down-to-earth experts with the knowledge and skills to make all different types of vehicles do things you would never imagine. DRIFT THIS is the perfect addition to MotorTrend’s growing lineup of entertaining and empowering content.”

DRIFT THIS is produced by MotorTrend. For MotorTrend Group, Levi Rugg and Fred Chang are Executive Producers, Mike Pantaleo is Showrunner, and Mike Suggett is Vice President of Development. Alex Wellen is Global President and General Manager of MotorTrend Group.
