I’ve been throwing my R32 GTS-t Skyline practice car at Ebisu’s walls for almost three years now, and it’s still going strong. I’m wondering if I should sell it while it’s still running and get something new or keep it and fix it up a bit. Either way, it’s been a beast!

Even though there’s a little bit more interest in Daigo’s new R35 project car right now, let’s have a little look at his current D1GP JZx100 Mark II when it debuted at the D1GP at Ebisu Circuit.
Here’s another video from the summer Drift Matsuri at Ebisu Circuit. In this one, I hit up Higashi Course in my R32 Skyline with D1GP driver Suenaga and D1SL driver Waki as it was starting to dry out a little bit.
You’re drifting a sedan the right way when you’re looking out of the rear door’s window. This was Daigo Saito today during qualifying for tomorrow’s D1GP Round 5 at Ebisu Circuit.1 Comment
To follow-up on last week’s Touge Course video, here’s a couple of laps from North Course at Ebisu in the Skyline missile.
After a long day drifting at Ebisu Circuit, it’s always fun to hit up the Touge Course to finish off the tyres! Enjoy these (almost) three non-stop helmet-cam laps.
I was up at Ebisu Circuit last weekend for another High Speed Drift Club event, and Team Orange’s Naoto Suenaga suggested we all have a three-lap race in the middle of the day with our drift cars. It was something he’d wanted to do for a while, so we gave it a shot. Here’s what ended up happening from my point of view.6 Comments
Late last year, I helped the boss of Norway’s Driftmonkey drift team, Ove Harlem, as a translator and assistant when he came over to Japan to visit Ebisu Circuit and do a one-day drift school with Team Orange’s Naoto Suenaga. Not only is this a video of that, but it’s also a pretty good insight on the insanity that is Norway’s notorious Gatebil events. Damn, I want to visit one of these! Shot and edited by Luke Wilson.
I made another video like last week’s one. This time, its from the helmet-cam of Team Orange’s Naoto Suenaga at Ebisu Circuit’s Higashi Course. Enjoy the ride!
Just to compare, here’s a video of me doing the same course in the wet in my R32 practice car. A bit of a difference in speed, isn’t there?
A bit over a month ago, I noticed that Team Orange member and Ebisu Circuit PR manager Naoto Suenaga had invited me on Facebook to an event called “HighSpeedDRIFTClub” to be held on the definitely very high-speed Higashi Course at Ebisu Circuit.
Since this was probably going to be the last chance to hit Ebisu Circuit in the Skyline missile before it was covered in snow, I headed up with a carload of tyres to enter. Another couple of good reasons to enter was because Higashi Course is usually only open to drifting three times a year during Drift Matsuris, and the entry to this event was only about half what it normally costs for a private track day at ¥6000.11 Comments
