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 first FIA Intercontinental Drifting Cup - Drifting in Odaiba Tokyo

Drifting in Odaiba Tokyo

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!

1988 Nissan Laurel
Powerful, comfortable and easy to modify into a mean JDM drift car, the Nissan Laurel is a JDM model sought after by serious drifters and tuners.

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.

If you dream of owning a JDM drift car, be sure to contact Japan Car Direct!

  • 5 star review  Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.

    5 star review  Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.

    5 star review  I had been toying with the Idea of importing a Land Cruiser from Japan for a while and to be honest was quite hesitant about doing so, as the process for a first timer seemed quite daunting. Mathew at JCD made the whole process SUPER EASY! Been a pleasure dealing with him and was kept informed every step of the way and super fast communication kept the whole process stress free! Thanks again Mathew and I'm looking forward to the next Cruiser! Cheers!!

  • 5 star review  Mathew at Japan Car Direct has been a HUGE help and continually went above and beyond with assisting me. It was my first time bidding on vehicles at auction and having them shipped to the US. He even helped me arrange a mechanic in Japan to do some work on the Hiace I purchased so that it would arrive in the US in tip top shape and be ready to hit the road. I look forward to doing more business with Mathew in the future and you should too!

    5 star review  I was totally clueless and was having a really hard time finding someone that I felt I could trust to help me with these auctions. A couple folks recommended Mathew over at JCD and I very reluctantly reached out. Yeah, I have trust issues. Dude put me at ease and really walked me through the whole process. After a couple months I didn’t end up buying a vehicle, but that’s on me. When I changed my direction, Mathew helped me wrap things up and wished me well. I have zero reservations about reaching out to these guys or recommending anyone else to do so. Very helpful, knowledgeable, prompt and everything I needed. You won’t be disappointed.

  • 5 star review  Discovered KEI vehicles about a year ago and spent many hours searching the internet in hopes of finding an affordable van state side, to no avail. That is until I sent a message to Mathew at JCD. He was quick to respond, answered way too many of my silly questions, and worked diligently to find the right van for me. He is thorough, clear, and timely. Made the process simple and enjoyable. I am more than excited to work with him again. I highly recommend the service these gentlemen provide.

    5 star review  Matt made importing a few mini trucks for our farm a breeze. Super easy to deal with and transparent with all the details involved in bidding and winning auctions, the import process, and everything in between.

    5 star review  My truck had been stolen and Matt was helping me bid on mini-trucks to replace it. Of course once we started bidding the truck was recovered, but Matt was upfront and very helpful both getting into and out of our auction based relationship. I would not hesitate to work with JCD again!

  • 5 star review  I worked with Mat and i believe i couldn't have done any better. This was my first time dealing with importing, Mat was so patient and helpful through this purchase. I also feel he got me the best deals, i have since the first purchase made two more and will continue to do business with Mat.

    5 star review  I purchased three vehicles from auction with Matt, he made it extremely easy and was available whenever I needed him throughout the entire importing process. This is not the last time I will be dealing with them. I plan to order more vehicles in the near future! If your looking for a trustworthy company to order vehicles through I highly recommend JCD!

  • 5 star review  Mathew and the gang were great with helping me with the acquisition of my 1994 Subaru Sambar dump kei truck. I was so excited about getting a truck I was ready to buy just about anything. Matt put the breaks on that and used his experience and knowledge to weed out the potential problems. I use my truck almost daily around our farm moving things and as a work surface. It is great. Mathew and Japan Car Direct helped my sister get a kei truck as well and I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone who has expressed interest in my great little vehicle.

    5 star review  I purchased a 1994 4wd Suzuki Carry Kei truck through JCD. Yoshi helped me during the process and after nearly 3 months and over 100 emails back and forth between questions and translations of auction sheets I finally decided on a truck. I've now had it for nearly a month and couldn't be happier with the purchase. They are extremely promt with responses and answered all questions I had. Being completely new at the importing process I never felt uneasy with my decision. If I ever decide to import another vehicle I will definitely use them again.

    5 star review  Excellent service from beginning to end. I registered over the new year holidays and received an automatic out of office response and also still received personal response indicating when auctions resumed. The process takes doing your own due diligence to study the cars you want but the guys at JCD will assist where they can as well.
