The closest translation of “gekokujou” into English is “when a junior dominates his senior”, but in the case of car club Gekokujou, it probably has a meaning closer to “mutiny”.
Gekokujou recently held a track day at Fuji Speedway to celebrate one of their older members “graduating” from drifting and leaving the club. It was very much a casual affair, with the majority of drivers on the day being part of the same circle of friends who just drift because they enjoy doing it together, but that didn’t stop us coming along and joining in the fun.

I posted some of these photos back in 2006 on a couple of drifting forums, and some people promptly took them, watermarked them and posted them on their own websites.
Now that Noriyaro is up and running though, the rest of the until now unseen photos have a place to be shown. These are, of course, photos of Team Burst, one of the most impressive drift teams of recent years (the award for all time greatest drift team has to be Marionette, but we’ll talk about that another time) taken back in 2006 on Meihan Sports Land’s E-Course, not the C-Course as seen on most of the videos from Meihan, where Burst does their wall-scrapingly best.
That didn’t really matter though, as the guys from Burst and Gloss Factory were doing some extremely close driving that day, both to the walls and each other, leaving a trail of rubber shreds, fibreglass and zipties in their wake.
