King of Drift: Keiichi Tsuchiya drives the Toyota GT86
With the launch of the Toyota GT86 well under way, we've discovered a brand new sport that will give us the chance to race our new GT86 against the clock.
Called Drift Sprint, we developed the challenge with the help of "Drift King" Keiichi Tsuchiya, who joined us earlier this year to approve the course.
Our track has also been fine tuned with help from Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe and Top Gear Magazine's Ollie Marriage -- both highly capable drivers.
As our video shows, the idea is simple. Racing against clock, a combination of car control and raw speed is needed to complete the course as quickly as possible.
For a 'behind the scenes' look at this video, read our recent post on the Official Toyota Blog: http://blog.toyota.co.uk/behind-the-scenes-with-drift-king-keiichi-tsuchiya-and-the-toyota-gt86.
"The Touge" with Keiichi Tsuchiya 1987 - Part 2
(See part 1 for the beginning) The very first video of the Drift King Keiichi Tsuchiya back in 1987 when he was 30.
Filmed on an open mountain road at Usui, this video is a perfect demo of his drifting skills on his AE86.
After this video, badly, the Drift King had his racing licence retired by the JAF (Japan Automobile Federation) because of this dangerous driving on the road.
