After drifting in three continents, Dai Yoshihara decided that in-between Round 6 and 7 of the stateside Formula D series, he’d take a little break and go compete in a couple of drift events in Europe. First arriving in Ireland, Dai drove a unique SR20-powered Toyota Altezza at the Mondello Circuit. He was only able to finish in Fourth Place, being knocked out by fellow Falken teammate D-Mac McNamara. Up next, Dai headed to mother England to drive Driftwork’s 2JZ-powered Nissan S15 (man, they sure love cross-manufacturer swaps over there) at the Drift Allstars European series at Wembley Stadium. Dai went on to finish Eighth in this event.
In recap Dai said, “I was very impressed with the drifting in Europe. The cars, driving styles, and the level of interest for drifting were phenomenal. Seeing how much interest there is for drifting in Europe really proves that the sport of drifting has literally gone worldwide. Thanks to everyone who gave me the chance to experience drifting in Europe!”
