Here’s the plan. You’re either going to like all of these videos, or hate some and absolutely love others.
First up is some Ken Block, filthy Rusko dubstep and girls wearing innertubes. You know you love it.
Next up is some proper oldschool thanks to Youtube user TwinTurboRS. He’s uploaded quite a few of the old Auto Vision street drifting videos, so check his uploads for more. Some of the more interesting include:
Orange Road down in Kansai. I had the VHS tape of this back when I was first learning to drift and would watch it about a dozen times in a row to try and figure out how they were doing it. This video was also used on the show Today Tonight, a current affairs show that usually concerns itself with frivolous topics such as “neighbors from hell” and “the increasing lack of cheese on takeaway pizzas”, as an example of Australian street drifting.
You’ve probably seen this one already, but for those who haven’t, see what sportbike drifting is going to look like in a few years when it becomes more popular, thanks to Icon. Love that Master-Chief-style Variant Salvo helmet.
If you don’t mind listening to videos with the volume down, try some of the videos on user ANDECHSYOU’s channel.
Another one worth watching, especially if you like tyresmoke is the guys from street drifting team FOOL at Tsukuba Circuit. Just turn the sound down and put some music on.
You may have heard that Japan is a relatively safe place to drive, but that doesn’t meant you won’t occasionally come across weird or dangerous situations on the street, in this case recorded by the JAF Mate drive-cam recorder. Imagine blasting down the expressway and overtaking an old man on a bicycle?
Here’s one to remind you that drivers don’t usually stop for pedestrian crossings. Be careful when you visit!
Here’s a video that gives me flashbacks of something that happened to me right near the house. Natural selection is all well and good, but I don’t really want to be the one doing the selecting!
D1 commentator Manabu Suzuki used to be a race reporter, and his English these days is about as good as it ever was!
To make up for the bad audio on the previous drift videos, prepare to turn your speakers all the way up for some Hakosuka in-car at Fuji.
Finally, if you’re itching to come to Japan, this will make it worse. User egawauemon has a large series of steady-mount videos shot around the world, but this is his longest one of Tokyo. If your computer can handle it, head to Youtube and watch it in 1080 res.
