JUDGEMENT DAY - Philippine's First International Drift Event

This is probably the most exciting motorsport news I have heard my entire drift-loving life!

In November 19, 2016, top drifters from Japan and Malaysia are coming to the Philippines for an amazing showdown of the most intense driving skills known to man. Dorifto!

Collab Philippines brings you… JUDGEMENT DAY – the first ever international drifting event in the Philippines!

Assembled by Filipino-Japanese drifter, Toni “Half Breeds”Arakaki, a team of esteemed drivers namely, Daigo Saito (yes.. Daigo Saito), Tan Tat Wei, Hirohide Tanaka and Keiichiro Kadekaru will battle it out with the Philippines’s top drifters in an octane pumping drift competition in Clark International Speedway. The competition will be judged by none other than King of Europe’s Mike Procoreur. Oh and by the way, the drivers won’t be coming alone. They’ll be bringing their badass cars with them. Over 4,000 HP in total. Are you freaking out yet?  

Drifting is definitely gaining momentum in the Philippine motorsport scene. While it’s not exactly under the limelight yet, JUDGEMENT DAY will definitely catapult it to center stage. And not only will this help ripen the sport in our country, it would also be a massive leap for our local drivers as well. Before we know it, it’ll be our turn to go overseas and more and more Philippine flags will be waving sideways across the globe.      

To Collab Philippines for spearheading this unbelievably awesome event and bringing it to the country,  to Mr. Toni Arakaki who never forgot his roots and incessantly gives his full support in building the local drifting community… On behalf of my fellow pinoy drifting aficionados, I’d just like to say, we freaking love you.
