How is drifting judged? 

Because professional drifting events are judged on execution and style, it is mandatory that the judges are intimately familiar with the capabilities of the cars and the advanced driving techniques employed by the competitors. 99Drift Grand Prix judges are highly qualified, usually former professional drifters, and are considered experts in their field. 

Speed, angle of attack and vehicle control are the factors 99Drift judges evaluate. All drivers get solo runs before the Best 16 head-up eliminations start. All participants who make it to the Best 16 run door handle to door handle, with one other car on the circuit at the same time. As fun as the solo runs are, this is where the real excitement starts and brings the crowds to their feet. 

Factors like slowing to the point of hindering the other driver, running into another driver's car or spinning out means an automatic loss of the run. Putting pressure on an opponent through a more aggressive drift angle, carrying a higher speed through a corner, and showing good strategy are extremely important tactics used to win an elimination round. Each judge knows what each competitor's car is capable of. The judges will know how much of the car's potential the driver is using, and if the driver is not pushing the car to the limit, they will be eliminated from the round
