Thank you so much to all the people who sent in pictures of their “foreign” drift cars at such short notice. Some of the cars were pretty cool, but the weirdest one was an absolutely nuts two-door converted Volga smoking it up in the Ukraine. Drifting sure has come a long way! I’ll be responding to the last of all the emails shortly, and I’ll inform the people who made it into the magazine as soon as I know.
Also, you may have noticed there’s not a whole lot of original content appearing on Noriyaro right now. For this I have no excuse, so I hope you don’t mind the wait until I can get some new content together. Petrol isn’t as hard to find now as it was after the earthquake, so events should be starting up again regularly in the coming month too.
In the meantime, here’s a video from JZX90 drifter Tatsuo Akimoto showing what Ebisu Circuit looks like as of yesterday. The circuits themselves seem fine, but the thing that actually worries me are those big cracks on the expressway up there! Losing front aero on the Tohokudo would not be a lot of fun.
Speaking of Ebisu, the Sliproad Junkies have some Love Ebisu t-shirts and hoodies with proceeds going to charity. You may have heard that Kumakubo and the staff at Ebisu have been using their resources to get actively involved in the relief effort in their area. がんばっぺない東北！
For UK guys, don’t forget about Banzai Magazine’s charity meet at the 8 Ball Diner on the 7th of May. Details at the Banzai website.
Yuta Akaishi’s Heartbreaker stickers.
If you’re still not sure who to help out, you could always donate to the Japan Red Cross Society. Otherwise known as the Sekijuuji (赤十字) or “Red Ten”, they have a direct link to their donation account on their website.Tags: Ebisu Circuit
