RUNNING ON THE SIDE: Drift wheelies at Nikko Circuit

By in 04-09-2012 9:45 pm

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.



CLICK DRAG RACE: Virtual Japanese track tours with Google maps

Now here’s a good waste of time! While they’ve already done Street View maps of a few other racing tracks around the world, such as Laguna Seca and Mt Panorama, Google Maps now has Street View of some of the major circuits in Japan. What’s even better is that they haven’t just lapped around the circuit itself (or at all, in the case of Fuji Speedway), but also driven through the pits and interesting surrounding parts of the track.
