LAST TIME AT OKEGAWA: Drift and a crashJanuary 8, 2013 4:18 pm
Here’s some on-board video of my R32 Skyline missile from an event on the 29th of December last year at Okegawa Sports Land, as seen in these previous posts.
Unfortunately, this will probably be the last time drifting will ever be seen at Okegawa, as the circuit owners are not too keen on how dirty and chewed-up the track gets after drift days. There are usually consecutive drift events held on the last weekend before New Year’s, so at least we were able to attend that before they ban drifting and return to their usual clientele of motorcycles and karts. This is a right shame because it really is a fun circuit to drive, and is the closest one to where I live.
For everyone else out there, look after your local drift track! Take all your used tyres and garbage home with you, even little things like used zip-ties and cigarette butts, avoid dirt-drops, clean up any fluid leaks and help keep your track clean!

Was that saito chasing you before you crashed?
Glad that the crash wasn’t a huge one but what happened after? Did you have to compensate for that silver s14’s repair or anything like that?
Of course not. What happens on track, stays on track.
I’m sure Alexi apologised, though.
This is the attitude I love so much!!!!
Loving this site, but its making me really want to get back to Japan ASAP
Looks like fun, besides the crashing bit, of course. What a great opportunity, to get eaten alive by Daigo XD
Hey Alexi I’ve been meaning to ask… what size is that steering wheel? 350mm? Looks like just the size I need and I wanna be sure before I spend $300 on a wheel!
Damn Alexi, you look so comfortable behind the wheel.
