Emily from Powervehicles.com, who have their office based out of Ebisu Circuit, just posted this image of how bad everything was thrown around in the Ebisu Circuit office. Emily and the PV.com staff seem to be alright from what they have said on Facebook which is fantastic. Emily did report this however, “Our garages are half way down a cliff,” which must be insanity. They have their shop based on some of the garages in-between the tracks at the famous Ebisu Circuit. *UPDATE* This second photo we just added by the Powervehicles Facebook Page showing the garages sliding down the cliff basically (center image). He has reported that his car inventory is damaged and even the track has damage done to it.
The area around the track called Fukushima was hit very hard according to Adam from 7Tune.com as we are talking while he is in Tokyo on Skype. The next town north of Ebisu Circuit called Sendai was wiped out by a tsunami.
Daijiro Yoshihara who was visiting Japan has checked in on Facebook confirming he is alright and Yukio Taira (former JIC team manager) has reported he spoke with Kenji Yaminaka who is also safe. We will try to keep everyone apprised with posts and comments in these posts with things we learn from Japan as they take place as it related to drifting.
