How did you start drifting and at what age?

When I was younger I used to watch DVD’s about drifting and then I realized that I am truly interested in this sport. Then, my father showed me the technique of drifting.
How do you feel being the youngest drifter in the world?
Well, I feel extremely happy, not only for the title but for the fact that I perform my favourite sport. I think I am lucky to be able to participate in races and show people my love for drifting and cars.
