Japanese S2000 Gets Slideways, Leaves Us Wanting More

By -

This video is criminally short, and leaves us with unanswered questions.

Looking towards the Japanese S2000 scene, most of the emphasis is on wild time attack, and track-focused builds. That said, we have started seeing more independent content coming onto YouTube from Japanese S2000 enthusiasts that is difhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8NUy0IOZca8ferent. We’ve seen S2K’s blasting around Tsukuba, and cruising through Tokyo, but a rarer site is using an S2000 for drifting.

That brings us to this video we stumbled upon from the YouTube channel of 山川正雄. According to Google Translate, that is Yamakawa Masao, a Japanese motorsport and drifting enthusiast. Yamakawa-san‘s channel is filled with clips of various cars ripping around the track, like this S2000.

Embarrassingly, we can’t identify this track, though, it looks like one of Ebisu’s smaller courses. Likewise, there are no details on this AP1 S2000 getting very sideways. It’s obviously much louder than a stock car, and it has an angle kit, but beyond that, we’re left wanting to know more. Got any insights on this one? If so, we are all ears. Drift-spec S2K’s are few and far between, so watching weekend warrior drifters throw down in an S2000 is super cool.

If you have any insights, please drop a comment and help us fill in the blanks.
