Motorist tries to drift on New Paltz hairpin turn, loses focus

What happens when you mix new cars, poor decisions and New Paltz’s famous hairpin turn?

See video below.

We’d been hearing rumors of a strange crash on the mountain all week, and this footage did not disappoint. According to the description, the motorist was a member of the NY ST Club, a group of Ford Focus and Festiva enthusiasts. He was promptly kicked out of the club after the incident.

“NYST (The NY ST Club) does not condone or approve of this reckless behavior on public roadways,” it states.
