USA drifting VS Japan Drifting (Part 1)
Japan, the birthplace of drifting, still influences the world when it comes to drifting professionally and grassroots. The USA however has made a surge into drifting dominance over the last decade and has also began to adapt a style and movement unique to itself as well. In this 2 part podcast, we will break down the differences between the 2 scenes, and the similarities and influences as well. In part 1, we discuss how D1GP scores professional drifting via GPS today and compare it to how Formula D still uses traditional judging. We also discuss which cars from the 2000-2010 decade could become popular drift cars, and talk about nostalgic drift media that hooked us into the scene many years ago! Join us for episode 3 of your dedicated drift podcast, BATTLE DAMAGE!
