As far as obscure car subcultures go, the Dodge vans racing in Japan has got to be near the top of the list. This group of the motorcycle racers have come together to modify and race their Dodge B-Series vans, it’s pretty wild.
Youtuber Alexi from the noriyaro channel went to the event to capture the insanity that is Dodge van racing and drifting. He discovers that many of these vans serve the dual purpose, bringing the racing bikes to and from the track, while also being flogged around the racecourse themselves for the few laps. Some vans are more modified than others, though.
Well, the faster Dodges have their interiors stripped out, their windows removed, all for the sake of setting the better time. In the van. Others though, are set up to drift. Being rear-wheel-drive, V8 vehicles, theoretically they should have no problem getting sideways around the corner.
Unless, of course, you consider all of the weight being thrown around. Because, you know, it’s the van. Extensive suspension mods, as well as some admittedly great-looking wheels and the tires are needed to actually set these things up and to have fun. Whatever the reason behind doing this to the van, the result is crazy to watch.
