When I lived in Australia, I used to help run a drift club (www.initialdrift.com.au) that put on track days about once a month. The circuit we used most of the time was no more than an hour’s drive away from most people in Sydney, yet you’d still hear the occasional whinger complain about the distance.
This S14 Silvia belongs to a girl named Michiko. She drove about 500km/310 miles from Nagoya to Utsunomiya to drift at Nikko Circuit, then drove back home the same day.
Michiko (on the right) and the two friends she came with are all girl drifters from Nagoya, and she does office work at Kids Heart, the same shop that Tsuyoshi Tezuka works in. Apparently she saw me at some point when I was there a couple of weeks ago because she knew who I was when I first walked up to her.
Another cool thing about Michiko and her friends is that they all wear rather tight and form-fitting tailored overalls. Usually, girls who come along to the track just wear a regular pair of mens overalls in a small size that they picked up in the local Workman store (a place that supplies labour uniforms, and a cheap source of JDM overalls), but they had actually managed to find overalls cut to fit a girl. Yep, Japan.
Even after driving up that morning and drifting all day, the three of them drove all the way back to Nagoya that same night.
“I have to go to work tomorrow!” she said.
