Drift Races are a Race Mode in GTA Online.

This job has been added to the game as part of the update on December 12, 2023, and is available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

This is a mode that can be played by 1 to 8 PLAYERS_N.

Lean into those hairpin turns and over-rotate your tires in pursuit of the perfect amount of angle in Drift Races, utilizing specialized drift tuning kits.

Rather than just the usual race to the finish, this mode awards Drift Points based on a combination of criteria, including bonuses for Precision Drift and your final racing position. String together a series of shorter swerving turns to build a multi-chain mega drift or push the limits to try and reach the ultimate status of Drift God.

Watch out for obstacles though, as love-tapping a lamppost could cost you your current multiplier. Whoever finishes with the most Drift Points wins.

Drift Races are available to all LS Car Meet members, and take place across seven classic Los Santos destinations, including Legion Square, Vespucci Beach, the Vinewood Hills, Mirror Park, and more.

Drift Race: A Hill To Die On

According to the celebs on Bleeter, life in Vinewood Hills brings its own unique struggles: BBLs are sagging, next door's hot pool boy is piling on the pounds, and someone just crashed a ZR350 into the outdoor champagne fridge. It's a hard life. Point to point race for drift vehicles.

Drift Race: Beach Slap

Think of those tech bros on their beachfront balconies, watching the sunset with a chilled Cazafortunas in one hand and BAWSAQ in the other. Wouldn’t it be a shame if someone were to drift the backend of an FR36 through their portfolio..? Lap race for drift vehicles.

Drift Race: Highway Code

What do you get if you smash La Mesa's highway, a can of neon paint, and a deranged mob of juiced-up, burnt-out drifters together? The ultimate city racetrack. And an eight-car pileup. But mostly, the ultimate city racetrack. Lap race for drift vehicles.

Drift Race: Smoke and Mirrors

These days, Mirror Park’s considered one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Los Santos and it’s not hard to see why. Where else could you drift sidewise through Horny’s drive thru and grab a quarter pounder on your way to immortality? Lap race for drift vehicles.

Drift Race: Textile City Limits

New installations, cheering crowds, fresh street art and late-night shows. Textile City's "cultural boom" sounds so good on paper. But then, the PR material conveniently leaves out the stream of drift addicts tearing up the bus center. Lap race for drift vehicles.

Drift Race: Wide Berth

The port of Los Santos is the perfect setting to burn and slide into drifting godhood, so don't worry about breaking and entering. Do the docks have nightshift security workers? Yes they do. Are they all shotgunning beers at the finish line? Yes they are. Lap race for drift vehicles.
