Winds Auto D1GP AE86 Levin by Kimihiro Obata
The legendary Winds Auto D1GP Toyota AE86 Levin driven by Kimihiro Obata is back on track after a long period of inactivity, thanks to the Italian drifter Andrea Lussana who decided to take it to Castelletto Circuit for a first test! This car has many custom modifications and contains many years of refinements and improvements! Kimihiro was sponsored by Cusco so this AE86 has the entire catalogue of parts thrown at it, amongst many rare parts such as the ITB kit and other Toda Racing engine parts! If you don’t know, this car competed in more than thirty races of the famous D1 Grand Prix Professional Drift Series in Japan a long time ago! That’s definitely a piece of drifting history!
What is Drifting?
Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, with loss of traction in only the rear wheels, while maintaining control and driving the car through the entirety of a corner. The technique causes the rear slip angle to exceed the front slip angle to such an extent that often the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn (e.g. car is turning left, wheels are pointed right or vice versa, also known as opposite lock or counter-steering). The sport of drifting is not to be confused with the four wheel drift, a classic cornering technique established in Grand Prix and sports car racing.
