Who cares about Tokyo Auto Salon?

January 16, 2013 in drift video by banpei

While all the journalists of any importance were drooling over all the Toyota 86-es and Subaru BRZs at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2013 these guys were actually having some fun in the real 86-es at a circuit day organized by Auto Service Ito!

Who cares about 86-es and BRZs at the Tokyo Auto Salon when you can actually have fun with the real deal!

Drift video: Suzumebachi attack! (part 2)

May 6, 2011 in drift video by banpei


Half a year ago I already featured another Suzumebachi attack! post, also with videos by JRotaro and ae86lan. Difference is that this time they have been shot from the inside of one of the hachis:

At first only two hachis make their drifts on the Mount Fuji drift course (next to the Fuji International Speedway) but slowly more and more hachis join in.

Here is another video with 10 minutes of those suzumebachi hornets going sideways:

Here is another one from inside the orange two door hachi with slightly less choppy sound:

At first this video may appear as it would be not that interesting, but from 2:30 onwards it starts to get very exciting! (including a four hachi tandem drift in the long corner)

And last but not least, a last one with the best driver of the bunch!

He is going almost flat out on the full track! Amazing!

Drift video: Suzumebachi attack!

October 25, 2010 in drift video by banpei

Jrotaro just uploaded these amazing drift videos that were shot yesterday at the Mount Fuji drift course:

The Fuji drift coursee is right next to the Fuji International Speedway, if you keep track of the background in this video you can clearly see the entrace gates.

A couple of 4A-GEs together gives such an amazing sound! It almost sounds like a swarm of attacking hornets. :P
