Andy from Power Vehicles Ebisu running at Nikko for D1SL. I really like the livery on his cars ~
Team FUNKY with Attractive PS13 showcasing D-Max style at Nikko. Driven by Mr. クサバ ユウスケ with high spirit. I have a lot of content I never posted from this event, so I think […]
I was first introduced to this car last time I was at Nikko Circuit for D1SL. The driver, Mitsuru Murakami, is a SEED driver for the Street Legal series; unfortunately, he had some mechanical problems […]
I thought that this shot of Mr. ハマダ キヨフミ and his ECR33 was pretty cool. Garage Dual was tearing it up last time at Nikko – click for a higher res shot.
Going through a few photos this morning and came across this JZX with BN and R33’s that was at Shibaura PA; I thought it was worth sharing. I like the 745i badge the owner put […]
This is one S chassis that I haven’t seen too much of until last month’s D1SL round in Nikko. It’s actually quite different than what we’re used to seeing. I find the reference to American […]
One of the cars I enjoyed watching most at this past round of D1SL at Nikko was this GP Sports 180SX. The car is driven by コウノ シオン (Kohno Shion) who you may remember by […]
This morning Sekinei and I made the long trip from Tokyo out to Nikko Circuit to check out D1SL Qualifying. We were both quite tired from staying up all last night messing around on […]
As I type this I’m watching the qualifying of the F1 Chinese Grand Prix, and Vettel just got pipped in Q2. He’ll start the race in 11th place; It’ll be interesting to see how he can pull himself through the pack. On a semi-related note, I get to watch Rubens Barichello race his Indy car around the streets of Long Beach tomorrow afternoon; I couldn’t be more excited about that. Lastly, on a note more related than the first, here is some more coverage from Formula D in Long Beach this past weekend. I mentioned before that I didn’t have a media pass, so I apologize for not having action shots, but hopefully you’ll enjoy this look at some of the drift cars in the pits and at the show.

I drove back to my hometown this weekend to attend my friend’s wedding. I was looking forward to relaxing at home for a day or so and getting some work done on the website. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. It seems like whenever I go home, I’m pulled in 100 different directions; and there’s never enough time. Needless to say, NDF was M.I.A for the past couple days. Before I turn in for the night I thought I’d throw this post together real quick. During the Hot Version N2 Race at Tsukuba Circuit, the guys over at Drift Muscle, as well as some D1SL contenders, put together a little drifting exhibition. Check it out past the break – and catch video at JDM Clips.
Driftworks‘ own Phil Morrison and James Robinson, along with some crazy dudes from Garage Portello, decided they would go video ballistic on the Japanese drift scene. The result? Outsiders; a hour and a half long, HD drift extravaganza. Check out the trailer, be amazed, and then click past the break for more info. If you enjoy drifting, Japan, or drifting in Japan in the slightest amount, you should buy this movie.
In 2004, the sport of drifting had become commercialized enough, that promoters knew it was time to bring it overseas. D1GP was introduced in America with the start of the USA vs. Japan series that took place at Irwindale Speedway. My friend sent these over to me recently, and I figured since Formula D just wrapped up the season at Irwindale, it would be a good time to post these up. Needless to say, the heavy hitters from Japan look much younger! Hopefully they invoke some nostalgia into you guys and we can all remember what this sport is really about.
. . Alexi is quite the character. Be sure to check out his spread in Drift Tengoku on foreign drift.
Sure, we all know Naoki’s purple/pink S13 coupe, but some aren’t as familiar with the S15 he was to drive in D1. This purpose built drift machine was fully race spec, and just as crazy looking as the older coupe. I wonder if he will be driving it in the new series,‘The Drift Muscle’? Check out the pics.
. . Found this from a quick search on Vimeo; shot by InertiaMS. It’s a great video with some cool editing, and great clips. .
. *Taken from 7tune – FYI 7tune is a super legit blog, def. check them out if you haven’t yet. News comes to us from the international staff at Tomei Powered in Machida that Naoki […]
