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
This S14 belongs to Ohana from Team Magician. It returned to the pits at Nikko Circuit with an extremely lumpily-running engine and wafts of smoke coming from under the bonnet.3 Comments

There’s a phrase for it in Japan.
