What is doing “doughnuts,” or “donuts” in a vehicle?
According to ModernRacer.com, “a ‘doughnut’ is the act of rotating the rear of the car around the front wheels continuously, thereby creating circular skid marks if done right, and causing lots of tire smoke. All in all, it is a pretty pointless technique, with no real use except to show off.”
