Yes, The Stig is back in one of Blighty's finest - the Ariel Atom 4. Now it's not the obvious choice for a drift wagon, we'll admit, but with the Atom 4's new torquier turbocharged engine, The Stig's feather-touch left-foot braking - oh, and 538bhp/tonne - let's see just how sideways it'll go... Rate this drift in the comments below, and check out The Stig drifting an M3 GTS here:

  • Sorry but looks clumsy en chaotic, to close to revlimiter to be able to steer with the throttle and to much steering input. He's fighting the car instead of dancing with it. It's true the atom is designed for grip and you won't get the angle of an fr-layout. Dry drifting would be balls to the wall and preferably be done with big runoff areas. But on a damp track and this power to weight you should be able steer with throttle and comfortably maintain your drift. Been there done that with formula cars on slicks. Transitioning this type of car is not for the faint of heart tough.

  • That thing has tons of grip. Even on a wet road, looks like he's having trouble getting the back end out. On the slow-mo shot you can see some grass and weeds hanging off the bottom. So he put it in the weeds once or twice attempting this. Just way to much grip. Point for the Atom. LOL!!
