Courtesy of The Drive: Winter sucks. There, I said it.
Sure, there are some positive aspects to the coldest of seasons. The holidays are always nice. It gives us a chance to drink hot cocoa, and an excuse to stay inside and binge-watch TV or binge-read books. But in terms of activities, the only thing winter is good for is sliding around. Pretty much every winter sport revolves around this in some way: skiing, snowboarding, skating, sledding. We at The Drive, however, are more partial to motorized pursuits. Winter may not be ideal for most forms of driving, but it does throw one major bone to the automotive enthusiast set: By lowering the amount of available grip, snow- and ice-covered roads lower a car’s limits to a point where they can be explored at significantly lower speeds.
Which is to say: Winter makes it really, really easy to drift.
