Tandem drifting is when 2 cars drift side by side through the course. This is the most exciting form of drifting as cars drift at high speed just inches from each other!
The same criteria as single drifting are used with the addition of:
- The leader gains points by maintaining a higher speed, angle and better racing line then the following car.
- The goal of the following car is to imitate the leader while staying as close to him as possible.
- Points are given for passing the leader only if done so while drifting and not interfearing with the leaders drift.
ONE MORE TIME is called when the judges deem that both drivers have performed equally. This is a sudden death match in which only one run is permitted and the winner is chosen.
