Fresh off of his practice run with his new Dodge Challenger drift car at Adam’s Motorsports Park in Riverside, California, Sam Hubinette brought the car and showed it off at a more fan-friendly setting: Hollywood.

As part of the festivities of the IZOD Indy Car Series’ "Race To The Party" event, Hubinette was on-hand for a special drifting demonstration of his Challenger drift car in front of a packed audience on Hollywood Boulevard just outside of the Kodak Theatre.

We already know how sick a drifter like Hubinette can be, but it certainly didn’t hurt showing the people in attendance the art of smoking tires. He even managed to do some drift stunts for good measure, much to the delight of the crowd who probably didn’t know who he was, only that he can do some pretty nifty tricks with his Dodge Challenger.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Sorry guys, but I don’t think that its just easy for the Challenger to do the donuts! I really love watching drift but and I guess Dodge have a hard time doing turns, for its the weak side of muscle car.

Well, Dodge muscle car doesn’t have any appeal for me. My best bet would be in the Mustang and if we are going to look at their sale, Well, Ford sells a lot! However, its good thing that Challenger is here to spice up the competition in the market.

The art of burning tires, I like that line. Their synch drift really looks great.

What the hell happened to his car? The car was coming out inside the car..

The Mini is much better than the Fiat 500. The 500 is a city car in Europe, the smallest category, and it shares platform with the new Ford Ka (the one driven by Olga Kurylenko in Quantum of Solace)

Donut is the only trick you can do to a drift space like this, but I must admit that i was amazed of their performance.
