About DriftingU


My name’s Matt Buglio and I’m the one behind DriftingU.com. I’m a photographer who’s shot at Formula Drift and local grassroots events.

I started this website for the love of drifting and the love of cars. I wanted to bring you a better way of learning how to drift with our online video course.

We teamed up with Michael Essa, Formula Drift champion and professional driver, to create the best instructional drifting guide out there… and I really think it is!

But I won’t get into it, you can learn more about the course here if you’d like.

To be honest, I don’t even drift (yet). I’m currently living out in Hawaii and there’s not much of a drift scene here. I’m moving back to the states real soon and hopefully I’ll be able to get out to the track by the end of this season.

And every purchase of the course will help that happen faster! 😉

If you’re just getting started with drifting, head over to our “Start Here” page and sign up for the free stuff. You’ll get a list of the 30 best drift cars, a list of every drift track in the U.S. and you’ll learn the one single technique that will let you master car control quickly.


If you ever need anything, shoot an email to [email protected] and I’ll get right back to you!
