looks more like lift off oversteer rather than drifting ?

Yeah probably. Was surprised to see it sideways though. I hear the demo cars have been recalled due to oil starvation issues...

Nice driving.

At 2:20 there's a beautiful shot where he's gone sideways, but with the front wheels pointing near straight ahead, which means that despite his attitude, the car is near neutral.

For a 4WD Audi that's quite an achievement, and it's what I always thought a good, powerful 4WD car ought to be able to do.

People are obsessed with powerslides, but seem to think it's oversteer they're after, rather than the sideslip itself.

Very nice, Nick

Here's a good video of Chris Harris putting the Golf R sideways (at the end):

That's all very nice, but here's Mark Higgins showing how it should really be done (5:00):
