Drifting a 911, at least intentionally drifting one, is a recent phenomenon. We have TV shows like “Top Gear” and YouTube channels like /DRIVE to thank for it. I mean what would a 911 video review be these days if Chris Harris wasn’t getting the back-end loose around a corner and hooning it up for the YouTube faithful? However, depending on what generation you come from, many of you may not know that “drifting” and “sliding” was the norm back in the ’60s and ’70s when, what are now, classic 911s took to the track for racing event. 911s of that era were notoriously tail happy and had none of today’s improved suspension, aerodynamics and electronic nannies to keep the cars tight to the track. Fortunately, events like The John Aldington Trophy race, named after the Max Hoffman of the U.K., show today’s Porsche enthusiast just what racing was like back in the late ’60s.
