In the weeks before Formula Drift Long Beach you probably heard a lot of talk about a dude named Daigo Saito. If you don’t know who he is then you were probably puzzled over why this guy is such a big deal. Well, let me tell you why. This guy is one of the best Japanese drifters since N.O.B. Taniguchi (maybe better), he is a D1 champion, and he does stuff like this. This year hes come across the ocean to compete in Formula Drift and despite getting into a new car, driving for a new team, on new tracks hes ever even seen before, this guy made the podium in his very first outing!
The team from Keep Drifting Fun, Will Roegge and Josh Herron turned their highly expensive cameras on Saito-san during the weekend of Formula Drift Long Beach in an effort to capture his awesome-ness on film. If you really want to know who Daigo Saito is, this flick is a good introduction so scroll down below and watch children!
