Japanese Tuning Show (EDC & Time Attack Rd. 3) 01-06-08

Today was the second JTS show held at the Silverstone circuit in Northamptonshire. The show it’s self is pretty small, with one area for club cars and one are for trade stands. The main focus of the day, of course, was Round 3 of the Time Attack series and the European Drift Championship.

There was a huge amount of hype surrounding this round of the EDC with it being the debut for Phil Morriston’s Driftworks 2JZ S15 and the entry of Team Orange’s Nobushige Kumakubo and Kazuhiro Tanak in their RWD Impreza’s.

Despite technical difficulties Kumakubo made it our for his battle with Phil who he had drawn first in qualifying.

It was a great battle to watch; Phil’s s15 is a total smoke machine and looked really planted and stable even when pulling big angles. It was Kumakubo who moved to the final 8 though, as Phil got a wheel on the grass.
