If you want to learn how to drift, you should look for a repetitive track which is rather simple yet complicated. I learned to drift using this track over and over and over. You don't even need and try to go through the poles, just staying on the road and trying to keep your vehicle steady while using NOS is enough. Maybe try making challenges for yourself when you feel you're better at it, just like I did; trying to sweep through poles without hitting them ifor example.
It was rather popular on my previous server and everyone kind of learns it there by simply doing this particular course. (See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ERaC_gOsGI: all of them follow this specific track.) I'd also love to set up a server and try to get you to learn it, just ask if you're ever bored and want to try it out.
It'd be really nice, especially since I lack friends with the same interests. (:
