In the final part of our series of A day in Nikko Circuit, we will concentrate on Alexi Smith. Alexi Smith is a pretty well known guy from Australia and runs a blog about his adventures in Japan called Nori Yaro . He speaks fluent Japanese, and has also guest blogged for SpeedHunters. You may have seen him in the JR goes drifting in Japan series, or you may have seen some of his work in Hot Version. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the man during my stay in Tokyo, Japan.
Drifting. The mention of the word sends different thoughts through my head. AE86’s, Touge, D1, wild body kits, bright colors and tire smoke are just a few words that come to mind. Of those, the one constant word that always comes back is JAPAN.
The heartland and origin of drifting as we all know it today. What better way to experience drifting than to go to the source. Lucky for me, my buddy Ameen from 786 motoring hooked me up with Alexi Smith from Ziptied.com.
