That's how it always looked

It's an arcade, so these things are to be expected.
But there are two kinds of drifts. One without brake, which doesn't slow you down, but is harder to control and the other with brake, that's slower but needed for sharp turns.

The first few races are easy and it goes exactly like you described. CPU is beating you, but then it slows down, to give you a chance to win. Don't worry, that will stop very soon.
