We've seen it at car gatherings of all types. Whether it's a big national event or a local coffee shop meet, there is always one guy that believes his car is the fastest on the planet. And he is on a mission to prove to everyone in the crowd by showing off a display of horsepower and skill... or lack thereof. After a recent car event in Japan, a Fast 'N' Furious: Tokyo Drift super-fan got it all wrong with one of the worst power-over drifts we've seen since this Corvette mishap.
After a parade of sexy Lambos, Ferraris, Porsches (including an RWB 911 ) comes this guy, captain Mazda RX-7. His third generation FD3S chassis has been fitted with the uber-tacky Veilside Fortune widebody kit and some mega-wide Veilside Andrew V wheels. However, all that rubber contact patch under his creation can't correct this horrible driving on damp pavement.
As the driver pulls out of the organized meet, all hell (and traction) breaks loose. The black and orange rotary-powered machine hits boost and during the over-correction gains a bit of traction, then heads straight into a crowd of onlookers. Luckily only four people reported minor injuries and there were no deaths. Shame the camera didn't keep filming to get the driver's reaction on the video you can watch below.
