** Many Formula One drivers (including Senna himself) consider Juan Manuel Fangio to be the absolute greatest example of this trope. Having won the Formula One championship five times out of eight, with four different teams, this fact is hardly ever disputed. The 1957 German Grand Prix is ''the'' example to show this as Fangio - on a Maserati - quickly got a lead of nearly 40 seconds ahead of the two Ferraris that were trying to catch up with him. A disastrous mistake at Fangio's pit stop halfway through the race made him leave the pit stop around 45 seconds ''behind'' the Ferraris[[note]]As a reference, none of the Ferraris had pit stops[[/note]]. No problem for Fangio, who broke the lap record 9 times in the remaining 10 laps (he cut the time difference with the lead driver by a third in the first lap), and ended up getting his final Formula One race win.

* Shane Schofield from MatthewReilly's books took an offensive driving course to justify why he can bypass a blockade by sliding along a concrete guard rail.

** Burt Reynolds does it again as the eponymous ''Film/StrokerAce'' just a few years later. This time, he's a three-time [=NASCAR=] champion who is known for spectacular antics off the track as well, although we only see a few of these in the movie proper.

** The Stig is the most obvious one, but there's also [[SixthRanger Sabine Schmitz]], the German racing driver from the Nurburgring. When Jeremy barely managed a full lap of the track in under 10 minutes in a diesel Jaguar (he got a time of 9:59), Sabine mockingly boasted that she could do that lap time in a ''van'', got in the car and thrashed Jeremy's time (she got a 9:12). Later on, they challenged her to live up to her BadassBoast. [[spoiler:She failed to do so, but not by very much.]]

* On the subject of drifting, Kunimitsu Takahashi. He is called "the father of drifting" for having innovated the technique in the racing world. He was a former Formula One and Grand Prix motorcycle racer and was the first Japanese racer to win a motorcycle Grand Prix in 1961. Tsuchiya himself learned some drifting techniques from Takahashi and later became the drifting legend as we know nowadays.

* Scandinavians, in general. The Scandinavian countries are covered 5 to 7 months per year on snow and the countries are located between 55th and 70th latitudes of North, so the weathers can be truly awful, and distances between towns are long (with notable exception of Denmark). The [[HadToBeSharp driving conditions and climate]] simply weed out any unskilled drivers. Most Scandinavian cars are [[DrivingStick stick geared]], so [[BadassDeiver Improbable Driving Skills]] come as an extra bonus.
