2013 Spring Matsuri at Ebisu Circuit Day 2 [GALLERY]

The second day of Matsuri was even more wild than the first one. We got sync’d up with large groups of drivers running courses all day and put to use our video camera and photographs to document a great day of drifting. We traveled all the courses over the course of the day capturing D1GP drivers in action and tons of forgeigners banging their beater bought missiles from around anywhere Ebisu has to offer. Here is a Monday gallery of the action as it went down!

Dean Kearney and Danny George have run-ins with the police before Atlanta

Danny George and Dean Kearney both posted about some run-ins with the police this week leading up to Formula D Atlanta this weekend. For Kearney, some late-night testing in Huntington Beach, CA in his Oracle Lighting Dodge Viper was met with a pair of police cruisers and a stern “what do you think you’re doing” warning that averted a possible fine with some discussion about cars and the Emerald Isle. George, on the other hand, ran into some authorities in Oklahoma who had some questions related to DOT regulations and the tow rig George had. Both drivers got off without any jail time and will be driving in Road Atlanta this weekend.

Otto Graven, Alex Lee, Andy Hately, and others will miss Road Atlanta

We have received word that for the second event in the row, Otto Graven’s crazy ‘Ultimate 86′ Scion FR-S will not be in attendance. There was talk that Otto may make an appearance in his old 350z, but it looks like he will be attending an event in South Africa instead.  Alex Lee has also mentioned that he will not be attending Atlanta in his Lexus GS300 that he debuted in Long Beach. We have also learned that Chris Jeanneret and Kory Keezer, both rookies from the Evergreen Drift series, as well as Andy Hately will not be attending. On the other hand, drivers like Walker Wilkerson, Jeremy Lowe, and Mike Pollard will be making their 2013 FD season debuts at Road Atlanta, all will be looking to make up for missing the Long Beach round.

Watch a Drifter at Spring Matsuri Mount a Tire by Hand in Less than 60 Seconds [VIDEO]

Just one of the awesome clips we captured at the Spring Matsuri Drift Heaven week at Ebisu Circuit was this group of drivers mounting tires by hand. This one drifter we captured on film could mount a whole tire ready for air in 56 seconds using his hands, feet, and a crowbar. Sit back and watch this awesome feat.
