All eyes will be focused on Japan this weekend as Cape Town drift racer Juan Stemmet does battle with some of the best in the business.

The Tsukuba circuit is where 31 of the best drifters from 40 countries across the world will meet, go sideways and put everything on the line to earn the accolade as the best drifter in 2019.

Putting it all on the line

Backed by the City of Cape Town, Razor Customs and Good Hope Construction, the 25-year-old Capetonian also carries the rest of the nation's hopes and dreams with him.
