Does anyone have any pointers on how to do Great Drifts? I've looked on youtube and none of the videos seem to state how to reliably do them. And I've hit a bottleneck where the rest of the game won't unlock until i've done this drifting thing.

Turn traction control off and if its on assisted braking.

Gas on, turn in and tap hand brake. Then turn into slide to keep it going.

OK, now, here's my issue.

What does that even mean? "Turn into the slide"

Because that can really be interpreted either way for a non-motor specialist gamer such as myself.
I always end up pushing it too far into a 180 or a J turn.

Say you're drifting into a left corner you will need to turn right to counter steer the car to stop it from spinning.

Further questions!
Do i keep accelerating when i hit the brake? And do you steer the car around the corner, then steer into the turn afterwards?

Noob questions, I know.

Need some acceleration to maintain speed yes but not full, its a case of feathering it.

The second you have the car sliding at a good angle you want to be steering into it else you'll spin out and the drift wont count. The earlier you start the drift the more great drifts you can earn since an awesome and ultimate drift add to the counter (More points for one long drift means they change)

In theory you could get 3 'great' drifts from one drift.

Thank you so very much for this. Got this this afternoon. This REALLY helped. That and spamming the rewind button.
