Kristaps Bluss, a pro drifter from Latvia, is most commonly known in the drift world as the man behind the maniacal BMW Eurofighter drift machines.
Last year Bluss drifted a fire breathing, carbon-fiber bodied, V8 powered 900bhp drift monster around the USA in the Formula Drift series. Last weekend however, he found himself behind the wheel of a much less ferocious Lada on a frozen racetrack in Siberia.
While the Eurofighter BMW and Bluss’ HGK racing team is taking the drift world by storm it’s big surprise to see a drifter, like Kristaps, who is so affectionate toward high output engines in a car that’s not even putting out 150bhp. Obviously, we wanted to hear his story.
