You didn’t think I was just going to post one day of weird kei car drifting and not follow it up, did you?
Now it’s time for some FF Subaru Rex action!
This is Tanaka, the leader of Rex Tomo No Kai (ＲＥＸ友の会), which means “Rex Friends Meeting”. Did you ever see that really old Drift Tengoku video on Youtube of two Rexes drifting at Nikko Circuit? That’s this guy. Search for “subaru rex drifting” and you should find it.
Tanaka was asked to put on a demonstration run during the Odaiba D1GP, and some of their action was closer than the main show!
Old-school D1 driver Hirotaka Hoshino was there too, in one of his Rexes that is usually used for snow drifting in the winter.
“I like snow drifting.” he said.
Riding in cars like this with other people is only possible if everyone is skinny. Even then, it’s pretty cosy.
Take another look. That’s PVC piping from the local home and hardware pretending to be a rollcage. It even has the price stickers still on it.
The guys all had a list of what to do on each demo lap taped inside their cars. They’re not Nazis in case you’re wondering. That first symbol is back-to-front compared to the swastika, and it’s a kanji character that means “manji” (fishtail drifting) in this case
Once again, this just makes you want to giggle.
Even on the big screen, a kei car is still only as big as a regular car.
Might have to see about picking up one of these next time winter rolls around…Tags: FF drift, kei car, Odaiba, Rex, Subaru
