Here’s the TSJ All Stars edit of the 2012 Chiba Damashii event. More great action from FOOL, Funky, Sexy Knights, Illusion, Running Free, Cockroach, Fanta, Freee’s and all the other Chiba-ken drivers!5 Comments
Chiba Damashii, or “Chiba Soul” drift event was on last weekend at Mobara Twin.
It’s a yearly event open to drifters from Chiba, the prefecture to the east of Tokyo, and the home of numerous famous tuning shops teams. Most of the famous Chiba drift teams like Sexy Knights, Illusion, Magician, Funky and Rookies were there in force, and rather than being a display of technically good drifting, it’s more about making lots of Chiba-style smoke and open-wastegate noise.
Most of my pics of the event are going to Drift Tengoku, so until I figure out what I can post here, enjoy these videos in the meantime!4 Comments

Me at Nikko Circuit in the Mark II a while ago.

Here’s another shaky video I shot at the 86 Style event at Fuji Speedway a little while ago. I think 150 was the official number of cars in the parade run, led by Keiichi Tsuchiya in his personal Trueno.
Combined with the cars seen over in the static display, this was an amazing event for any AE86 or 86 fan to visit. If you’d like to visit it, plan a trip to Japan around the 6th of August next year! I heard from the Managing Director of Fuji Speedway himself that there’s going to be more of these.Comment on this article
So, did we all have a good 8/6 day?
First, let me apologise for the shakiness, terrible sound, and terrible picture. There is an amazing amount of AE86 and 86 related stuff in here though, so it’s well worth a watch if you’re a fan. I also have some more video that will probably blow your mind from its scale, so look forward to that as well.
If you were gritting your teeth watching this and swearing that I wasn’t showing anything for long enough, I have some good news directly from the Managing Director of Fuji Speedway. They’re planning on running another one of these events next year, and it’s only going to get bigger, so put in for your work leave right now!5 Comments
My pics from last weekend’s four-door-only Otoko No Yonmai (click here to read about the 2009 event) will be going into Doriten magazine, so instead of those, please enjoy this video made by the TSJ All Stars.7 Comments
