Just like in Initial D! Alexi visits Gunsai Touge in Gunma Prefecture and goes for a ride in a replica of the Fujiwara Tofu AE86 Trueno on a touge-style course that looks and feels like real mountain drifting.Comment on this article

This film shot of the Noriyaro AE85kai was taken by Keisuke Nagashima from 86fighters when he came out to the AE86 festival at Sports Land Yamanashi a couple of months ago.
I have a fairly big video about this car coming up soon, so look forward to that!4 Comments
Nikko Circuit’s heavily cambered track edges can make for some fun drifting if you mess around with them. While it’s not something that most drivers normally do, standing near the final corner and egging them on does seem to help a bit. Here’s a few pics from a TGS track day earlier this year.
First up are Funky Racing’s Subleader and Gojappe.12 Comments
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
