What happens when you get two brand new Toyota GT 86s in an empty car park, each piloted by a man who's a bit good at going sideways?

Synchronised drifting happens. Here's a video of it taking place in Japan.

There's been a lot of official promotional material flying about on the GT 86, evidently more than for its Subaru twin brother, so it's nice to see something that doesn't stink of corporate 'viral' marketing.

Having said that, it still could be. The blurb is all in Japanese, so we can't even begin to read it, let alone read between the lines to see if something underhand is going on.

Either way, the GT86, which is on sale soon in the UK and for a very reasonable price, seems to be a very handy drift machine.
