Ebisu Minami Jump by Sumika

Every year D1GP and D1SL are celebrated in the Minami Course at Ebisu Circuit.
As you know, this course is very famous as a difficult track.  The D1 drivers start from the downslope and compete through the last corner.  The downslope is not horizontal; the inside of the slope is steeper than the outside.  If they pass there at high speed, the body of the car comes off the ground.  During the D1GP in 2009 Tetsuya Hibino started to solve that problem by jumping.  Since then, several drifters have entered the courner jumping.  I saw impresive high jumps by Tetsuya Hibino and Daigo Saito.  Their jump were really awesome.

On the 19th and 20th of May the D1SL was celebrated there.  Just one day before the competition our Drift Queen, Sumika Kubokawa  started to try to jump there.


She tried it during the qualifying race and she got the 3rd position.. ^^  I’ve got her video on board during the practice time..

Enjoy it with Sumika.. ♥

Tochigi Baka Drift Matsuri (Nikko, 4 / Mar / 2012)

There was a Drift festival called Tochigi Baka Matsuri in Nikko Circuit on the 4th of March.
Tochigi is the name of the prefecture where Nikko Circuit is located, and Baka means a fool.. >_<
We know Drifters and fans of Drift look foolish because we love sliding the car side.. xD

Several D1GP drifters and D1SL drifters participated and totally more than 200 peopole participated in the event. The level of drift is very high.  Please enjoy the videos from that Foolish Festival.. ^^

The next video is from an on-board camera in D1 LL (Lady´s League) Champion, Sumika Kubokawa’s car.

I remember back to early 2011 to see a picture showing the future of hellaflush. RIP was wrote as describing the end of a trend. Because when something is trend has its days numbered.

It starts in the US, quickly it spread to UK and circa 2010 hellaflush was within whole Europe and Japan.

They get into the HF and the USDM with awesome cars full of quality, you know business as usual.

But 2012 is looking different, Continue reading “Hellaflush? Soldout!”
