Black Mark Day 2015

Scene: Nikko Circuit – Tochigi, Japan

Dec 28, 2015
Photographer: Colin Waki

In Japan, they call it soukoukai—a grassroots drifting event where drivers don't need to impress sponsors or be at the mercy of judges. Soukoukai is all about good vibes and awesome drifting, which is why we love checking out Black Mark Day every year held at Nikko Circuit.

The organizer of Black Mark Day is none other than Hideki Nagahama of N-Style, whom we featured numerous times before with his Toyota Soarer and Supra builds. He started the event because he felt there was a need for more exciting drift exhibitions that invited cool cars with a badass street style as opposed to pro-level competition cars.

With the growing number of cars participating, Nagahama-san couldn't have asked for a better showing for his '15 event. He even had to split the run groups into three classes because there were so many cars! If you're ever in Japan, we encourage you to check out a soukoukai event as it demonstrates the free and fun spirit of Japanese drifting. You'll find nothing but awesome driving, a friendly atmosphere, and some of the raddest underground drift cars Japan has to offer!

Best of Black Mark Day
One of the sexiest cars of the day was this S15 Silvia on Work VS-XX wheels. Pretty sick on the outside, but its RB26 swap and sequential shifter are what put this over the top!

FF Drift?!?!
Your eyes aren't deceiving you… an EK4 Civic SiR built to drift! It's owned and driven by Genki Hirata, and there's a B16A under the hood and a hand brake that's used like crazy!
