View Full Version : Pure DRIFTING (DVD)

12-31-2003, 11:58 PM

Take a 2,700 lb, 450 hp import car, combine with a highly skilled driver, connecting turns sideways, at high speed, under perfect control and you've just described Drifting. The sport is one of the hottest trends to ever hit the U.S. import car scene. Unlike all other forms of racing, Drifting is not about crossing the finish line first; it's a unique sport that is all about form, technique and ultimate car control.

Meet the top U.S. drivers who are helping to build the U.S. Drifting scene. Through footage of them Drifting, their interviews and stories, experience the challenges of re-inventing and adapting a motorsport in the U.S. that has been popular in Japan for over a decade.

Using footage from car mounted cameras, ride along with professional D1 Japanese drifters as well as top American drifters as they execute intense, high speed, tire-smoking drift runs.

Check out "Weapons of Choice", the two most popular cars in Drifting, the Toyota Corolla AE-86 and the Nissan RPS-13/RPS-14 as top drifters explain the finer points of these two top Drifting machines. Learn about the modifications and aftermarket products that are needed to build a competitive Drifting car. The Drifters also discuss their favorite techniques and the evolution of their own Drifting styles.

Learn what the future of drifting in the U.S. looks like as promoter Ken Miyoshi, president of Mainstream Productions and Moto Miwa, founder of Drift Association / Club 4AG discuss their plans for expanding Drifting to the entire country and their vision of the future of Drifting in America.

This film isn't about T&A, DJ battles or car shows, it's about the drivers and fans of Pure Drifting.

Thanks for the feedback! That is encouraging to hear.

We are putting out stills and information to build interest and to get the word out about the film. Believe me, we want to have the DVD available for you as soon as possible, we are just finishing it up, you know, last minute editing, music clearances, copyrights, clearances for footage, releases, etc. All of that legal, distribution stuff you have to deal with...

We should be going live with pre-orders on our site at www.puredrifting.com and Ebay as well as a few popular import websites by the end of this month and shipping out the first week of February. We are hoping to have it in retail stores nationally by the end of February.

Hang in there, it's almost ready...;)
