Privateer: Taka Aono + The Flying 86...

What seems like quite a while ago Flying Boy Films released a preview of something they had been working on, a documentary about the career of Taka Aono.

It's taken a while but the wait has been well worth it. I'm typing just after watching it and I've been struggling to find a word which describes the feeling which has overcome me. The best way for me to describe it is "proud."

I've never had the pleasure of meeting Taka, but in my eyes he epitomises the Corolla lifestyle: A close knit group of people who share a bond, a brotherhood. We all understand the struggle in keeping an old car on the road, with parts becoming more rare and prices becoming more extortionate. Against all odds he has persevered where others have given up and taken the easy route. This may not give him the podium finishes that most will seek, but it has earned him respect. Thats something a 800 horsepower V8 won't get you.

Please do take the time to sit and watch this, as well as share it with everyone you know, because if it can in any way draw attention to his drift program that can only be a good thing.
