Gone but not forgotten

We've just heard here in the UK of the sad news that Atsushi Kuroi was killed last night in a motorcycle accident in Japan.

Kuroi, who owned River Side tuning garage in Osaka, was an amazing influence on drifters all around the world because of his maximum attack driving style and crazy 650bhp+ S13, powered by an RB26 and more recently a 2JZ.

With good results and a win at Fuji raceway last season in D1GP, more wins and a championship were always going to follow. His balls out driving style has pushed drifting to whole new levels and since being in D1GP, everyone has had to up their game to match his awesome angles and entry speeds.

Here's why he was a crowd favourite, massive angle, massive speed and massive smoke!

RIP man. You've left your mark on drifting and won't be forgotten.
