After a few days of carnage, destruction, and utter sadness that the world witnessed the recovery and rebuilding has begun in Japan. Many of us have ties with Japan (including myself) however, the motorsports community also looks at Japan as one of the fathers of motorsports including Drifting. Our friends at Wrecked Magazine have kept us in the loop in regards to what the drifting community have been going through these past few days of recovery.

In Ebisu, one of the main circuits of drifting in Japan and also home of Team Orange, the world famous WRX driven by Kumakubo, was stuck in one of the garages that has collapsed and has slid down a hill.

Using a crane to pull it out, efforts were made to make sure that the WRX was not damaged.

Luckily no one was hurt in Ebisu and that they’re doing what they can to rebuild over there. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in Japan.
