Japan Drift Events 2020

If you are planning on heading to Japan for an automotive holiday, one of the best things you can do is team up your trip with a drift event! Luckily there are often a big number of drift events per year in Japan, and here I will list some of the main ones for 2020. I'll hope to keep this list updated as regularly as I can. I will also soon be releasing a complete Japan Automotive Events Calendar in the coming weeks that will cover drifting, grip events, shows and more.
