Hiro Sumida: I have been an avid fan of rallying, especially the World Rally Championship (WRC). And I have been watching every single WRC rounds since 1993. That’s where my original interest in drifting came from. A little bit after that, I found the drifting article featuring Drift King Tsuchiya and Max Orido in their AE86 and that’s when I really wanted to try drifting myself. Still, my future dream is to compete at Rally de Corse.

A sharp parent would recognize a habitual problem child by their early teens and start making plans to have them removed by 16.
