How do you feel about heavily boosted J-tin cruising from apex to apex in full-on opposite-lock four-wheel-drift? If you’re anything like us, you are sort of transfixed. You don’t even have to like drifting to appreciate the cars and the extreme skill needed to whip them around a track not just adequately, but with style too. There are a lot of specialist sites catering to very specific car fetishes (brown Lincoln Continentals? Rolled-over donks?), but Noriyaro is where I go to get my JDM drift fix. If you don’t like the idea of 1,000 HP Supras banging against the rev limiter, then best not jump over to his site.
I found Alexi’s site through the Japanese Nostalgic Car blog, another site that deserves a shout-out, and Noriyaro is always entertaining. As an Australian in Japan, he has a great perspective on the sport he’s there to do – and a sense of great respect for it. Always entertaining, if sometimes a bit baffling (as it is with all things Japanese). Keep up the good work, dude!
