It’s a rainy day. I had some time on Youtube, and what I find? Jeremy Clarkson going to Japan to check out the touge, Wangan and a drift event. I knew I liked that Clarkson bloke. 😉
I’d never though that I’d see a video with Jeremy Clarkson and Keiichi Tsuchiya at the same time. This was “Old Top Gear”, but it’s still worth a look, if you have a few minutes for a fun little video throwback.
DW86. AE-V86. Whatever you want to call it, the DriftWorks AE86 has been an epic build to follow. The ASCAR-powered (No, that’s not a typo of NASCAR) AE86 has been screaming over the internet, showing awesome build photos, fenders and engine installation.
I wanted to make up with all of the past/upcoming Formula 1 posts, with something else epic of the drift car variety. Team Mouse is a well known AE86 Japanese drift team, who are epic at multi-car tandem passes.
You don’t need to hear much from me. The video is much more awesome. 😉
First, it was Datsuns. Last week, it was Porsches. This week, we’ve found someone who loves his AE86.
I think you guys know about Darren D-MAC McNamara and the rotary AE86 drift car that he built…last year?!? (Someone might want to check that…) Anyway, his passion for the AE86 is beyond doubt, and it shows in this video.
Maybe we should do a video about the Miata, seeing that both Bret and I own one.
…and a reminder that I really need to improve my driving. Watch this…
Gotta get down on Friday! Just enjoy the video. (Japanese Audio)
