"kayma akımı" or "geçiş akımı"


Explanation:
Actually I could not find an exact Turkish word for this term so I tried to make it up by using the definition you have given.
'akım' means stream, if it was an air stream it would be 'hava akımı' so I used the same word for 'stream' section of the term. When it comes to 'to slip' it literally means "kaymak" so it is possible to use "kayma akımı" , however in order to emphasize that this slipstream results in overtaking the vehicle in front, it is also possible to use "geçmek" verb which mean "to overtake" and reach the resulting phrase; "geçiş akımı".
I hope this will help you a bit.
