Race in… Alfa Romeo 2000GTV

On board in an Alfa Romeo 2000 GTV at Ebisu Circuit. Classic cars are just about feeling and pure driving. No helps, no super technology added. Carburetors and small tires for real feeling.

Drift Mates

This is a post from one of my friends.
I love drift and I love drift mates..  Many drift mates have the same sort of experience.. We’re very keen on making our dream come true.. ^^  Enjoy drift..!!

This dvd segment was my source of “what drift was” for my early teens 2001/2002, before the days of video sharing sites, regular drift days in Aus, or any real mainstream knowledge of the sport here, HPI, option or doriten was pretty much the only ways to see drifting in Aus besides a few days at pt gawler or street if you were one of the cool kids. also ignited my love for 4dr skylines, and for me sealed the deal for RB’s (see: 13minute mark).

Ebisu was the first real drift track i knew of, and i watched this dvd probably over 50 times back then, always wanted to go there, took me about 8 years to finally do it however haha.

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.. ♥
