Our story

Drifted was founded in 2009 by three drifting enthusiasts. We realised that there was a real lack of drift specific online media coverage at the time and seeing that this was a growing trend and there was a real appetite from drift fans for the content we took the plunge and launched Drifted to fill the gap.

“We took the plunge and launched Drifted”

We focused on creating the best car features, videos, news and event reports. Our team of volunteers were reporting from the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Our original content and high-quality photography allowed us to rapidly grow our website’s audience, while also helping us to build up our Facebook following.

As Drifted evolved over the past decade we identified that our audience wanted more, so in response, we pivoted our approach to content and redeveloped the website to offer games like Drift Hunters, technical guides and tuning guides.

“We broke all of our previous traffic records”

The Winter of 2017 was a milestone period for us, as we broke all of our previous traffic records and soared past 1,000,000 page views in a month.

Looking to the future, we are committed to continue to produce high-quality content, grow our audience, enhance our community and expand into new verticals within the motorsport niche.

In 2020 we released our first exclusive drifting game – Touge Drift & Racing. We worked with the developer to port this gem of a mobile game into WebGL, so we could host it on the Drifted website.

We followed this up in 2022 by releasing our second original game; developing and releasing Drift Hunters MAX. Drift Hunters MAX is the sequal to the most popular free drifting game – Drift Hunters, but with everything tuned to 11! More cars, more tracks, better graphics, optimised handling and more.

To date, Drift Hunters MAX has surpassed 2 million plays on the Drifted website and enjoys a genuine player rating average of 4.40 out of 5 from 210 votes. In December 2023, Drift Hunters MAX became a top 100 finalist in the IndieDB.com hosted “Best Indie Game Of The Year” competition, leading the “Racing Games” category.

We have been online for over a decade and can’t wait to serve you your favorite drifting content for the next one.
