When I was getting into drifting, the sport in the UK wasn’t anywhere near the size that it was today. I could never really find much media content from the UK, so all I and many others were really exposed to were endless Youtube videos, VHS tapes, DVDs and magazines. Most of these videos and magazines contained footage and photos from the “glory” days of drifting in Japan. Cars such as Nobuteru Taniguchi’s red S15 Silvia, Yoshinori Koguchi’s 180SX and Youichi Imamura’s brown AE86 Trueno have forever been embedded into my mind, and are what made me love drifting in the first place!
So to my surprise I came across this video of Taniguchi drifting the S15 (in my personal favourite style) that I’d never seen before for some weird reason. Just watching this S15 hammering around Mobara Circuit for 3 minutes gets me hyped about drifting again!
Anyway, enough teary eyed reminiscing. Enjoy the goodness, and for anyone new to drifting – make sure you do your research on this guy and car!
