Back in February 2013 we posted a trailer for an upcoming film focussing on Taka Aono and his passion for competing in Formula DRIFT in his Toyota AE86. We didn’t forget about it.
Taka Aono has competed in every round of Formula DRIFT since its inception in 2004, and he has done so in his AE86. This documentary is much, much more than a film simply focusing on a pro driver in Formula Drift, the premier professional drifting series in the United States. It also goes beyond explaining why the Toyota AE86, the car that arguably defines drifting more than any other, has almost completely disappeared from Formula Drift and is no longer seen as competitive in professional level drifting. This is possibly the best documentary ever made exploring how drifting has deviated from its origins and become the modern, big budget drift circus it is today.
Take an hour out of your day to follow Taka Aono, the man described as “The Spirit of Drifting”.
