OH SNAP> Taka Aono’s AE86 Turbo at Road Atlanta

In continuing with our celebration of 8-6 Day, I wanted to bring back this shot I took of Taka Aono at Road Atlanta earlier this year.  Seeing this car still compete at a top level in professional drifting really adds to the excitement and the theater (theatre?) of the event.  As much fun as it is seeing two high-horsepower Goliaths battle it out, replacing one of those monsters with a David only makes things more interesting.  This might be why the AE86 is still a crowd favorite, well over 20 years after its inception.
