Even with the ESP fuse plucked out from the fuse box and them using the handbrakes to initiate the drift, it didn't do it. As long as the car detects some sideways angles, power is automatically cut, which in turn stops the driver from holding a slide.
Refusing to give up, the guys tried again a year later with a more powerful variant. Unfortunately, the faster car understeers even more! So for you drifters out there, let's hope RenaultSport will release a racier variant that has a switchable traction control. And when they do, let's pray the car will come to our shores!
