A new trailer uses live-action and gameplay footage to show off more of GRiD 2, Codemasters' upcoming racing sequel. This is accompanied by some new screenshots and the following explanation: "The video, part one of a series of three, follows the fortunes of Chris Harris, motoring journalist and regular contributor to YouTube’s DRIVE channel, who has joined together with Codemasters to provide insight into car handling and vehicle selection for the game. In the video, Chris throws his McLaren around the famous circuit in pursuit of McLaren test driver Mat Jackson and uses in-game expertise from GRID 2 and Codemasters staff to gain the advantage. The video shows how Brands Hatch is created in-game and features stunning real life footage of the stunning McLarens power-sliding around some of the most iconic corners in racing, and is now playing at www.youtube.com/gridgame."

Just out of curiosity, why is it unforgivable? What's wrong with drifting?
It's the cars they are in that they can't drive that's unforgivable. It's like owning a Ferrari and going to the local McDonald's parking lot and doing donuts.
Ok you guys missed the RL in my post means REAL LIFE. You don't take Mclarens with Mclaren drivers and drive shitty with them on a track to show off a driving game. If they were going for the Forza Horizons, or Need for Speed sorta feel I would understand that to a point, but racing has always been about 2 things. 1)Best time, 2)first across the finish line.
Next thing you know they'll show Micheal Schumacher skidding and drifting around corners in a F1 car.
You seem to be under the impression that drifting is somehow evidence of a guy being unable to drive or something? That he's doing it because he can't take the corner normally? You're aware that drifting WELL actually takes pretty decent driving skills, right?
And since they drive on sticky slicks, if I saw Schumacher managing to drift an F1 car, I'd be REALLY impressed. :p
