Rain. It's the enemy of traction and speed, a million watery missiles sent to destroy lap times and g-forces. But that doesn't mean the fun has to stop. In fact, it may just be beginning, as this video of the E63 AMG sliding its way around the Brooklands track proves.

The best part of the video may not be the relatively low-speed, smoke-free drifting--though some are beautiful arcs of geometric purity. The best part might just be the beefy, deity-humbling roar of the E63 AMG's 525-horsepower V-8 as it spins its tires in a wanton display of wasted power.

But enough bloviating, time for some opposite-lock manna.
