VDrift - A Car Racing Simulator for Multiple Platforms

VDrift is a cross-platform, open source driving simulation made with drift racing in mind. The driving physics engine was recently re-written from scratch but was inspired and owes much to the Vamos physics engine. It is released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) v3. It is currently available for FreeBSD, Linux, Mac OS X and Windows.

Mission Statement

The goals of the VDrift project are:

  • to be a high-quality, open source racing simulation featuring enjoyable and challenging gameplay;
  • to take advantage of modern computing hardware to accurately simulate vehicle physics in rich and immersive racing environments; and
  • to provide a platform for creative experimentation to a community of developers and artists.

Hardware Requirements


VDrift requires a relatively fast CPU. A 2 GHz or better clock speed is recommended, although it should be possible to run VDrift with a 1 GHz or better CPU.


VDrift requires a recent nVidia or ATI graphics card. Intel graphics cards are not recommended.

A nVidia GeForce 7-series or ATI Radeon X1000-Series card is recommended in order to enable all the visual effects. By reducing or disabling some of the display options, it should be possible to play VDrift with a nVidia GeForce 2 or an ATI Radeon 7000.

Hard Disk Drive

When following this readme, one will typically need about 5.5 GiB hard disk space. VDrift source code and data sum up to about 3.5 GiB at the build location and installation requires about 2 GiB of space including dependencies.

Network Transfer

About 2 - 3 GiB network transfer volume are required for downloading VDrift, its data and dependencies.


VDrift consumes 300 MiB of memory space on a typical run, so 512 MiB of memory is the minimum requirement. Though, 1 GiB or more memory is recommended, especially for larger tracks.
