The First FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup!
The First FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup will be held on September 30, 2017 and the world of JDM drift cars will take an exciting leap forward when the world’s first international drifting competition — opens in Odaiba, Tokyo. It’s only natural that Japan, the birthplace of drifting and home to JDM drift cars, should host the two-day FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup. The FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup will feature leading drifters battling it out in European, American and JDM drift cars to determine who’s the best of the best.
The Odaiba track in central Tokyo has hosted numerous D1 Grand Prix competitions with top JDM drift car drivers since 2004 and is the ideal location for the breakthrough event. First announced on June 21, 2017 at the 5th annual FIA Sport Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, the FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup is being expertly promoted by SUNPROS, which popularized the D1 Grand Prix.
Drifting is already an international sensation with D1 Grand Prix and Formula Drift events drawing huge, enthusiastic crowds to watch JDM drift cars perform their sliding wizardry. The FIA commitment to standardize the safety regulations, guidelines and judging practices of drifting will transform it into a professional motorsport that further popularizes JDM drift cars around the world.
Japan Car Direct is thrilled to have the first international drifting competition come to Japan, where we are experts in JDM drift cars. Over the years, we have exported numerous turbocharged rear-wheel-drive JDM models in pristine condition to passionate enthusiasts abroad who have converted them to amazing JDM drift cars. The following are just some of the sought after models we have exported:
1996 Nissan Silvia S14
A cult classic in Japan’s tuning and drifting scenes, this easy-to-modify JDM turbocharged speed demon even dominates Tsukuba Circuit lap times. The perfect foundation for a JDM drift car!
1991 Nissan 180SX
This sporty brother of the Silvia S13 was modified into a serious JDM drift car with full 7-point roll cage, 2-way Nismo LSD, Next Miracle x brace, Greddy Trust coilovers and much more.
All of the above models were purchased at reasonable prices from used car auctions and dealers in the Japanese market, where you can find a wider range of turbocharged, rear-wheel-drive JDM models and modified JDM drift cars in better condition than anywhere in the world.
They've somehow made what was expected to be complicated, so simple. I got all the info I needed and imported my first JDM car without a single problem. Matthew was super fast to respond and always had an answer.
A must for exporting cars from Japan. I've exported various models with these guys now and they have been exactly how we wanted them with no underlying issues or surprises when they arrive. Very pleased and will continue to use these guys in the future!
This was my first time importing a vehicle for my personal use and naturally I was leary about who to go through. After looking through a few other places and after getting in touch with a longtime customer of theirs I decided to try these guys out. I can say without a doubt I'm glad I did. They are definitely professional and know their craft when it comes to getting you your dream car. Everything from getting cars inspected and bidding was completely transparent and went smoothly. I couldn't be happier with the car I bought and I hope down the line I'll be able to purchase another using these guys!! Thanks for all you guys do!!!
I have already purchased 3 cars from this company and have a 4th on the way. They are very nice, extremely helpful, and work around your budget. I worked with Yoshi. He is very nice and made me a lot more comfortable with the wire transfers (after purchasing the vehicle), because let’s be honest, it is nerve racking to send money to a foreign country and have to wait several weeks for your vehicle to arrive. However, everything has gone smoothly, and they make it very easy to import the car of your dreams. I will continue to go with Japan Car Direct for all my japan car needs 😀
Amazing people to work with. Answered any question I could think of and never left me hanging in during the entire process. I was always kept in the loop. Matt and his team are superb in every way. From picking my car out at auction to picking it up at port they were always there and now I have great little cappuccino to drive around now! I will be using them again to bring in another car in the near future that's for sure.
