In a display of true automotive passion, a New Zealand car enthusiast has turned his front yard into a drift track, creating a local sensation. Takeshi Teruya, the innovative homeowner, decided to bring the thrill of drifting right to his doorstep, literally. The project, which transformed his regular driveway into a mini drift track, cost around $10,500 and spans approximately 0.1 miles.

The remarkable aspect of this project is not just the track itself but the community spirit it ignited. Unlike neighborhoods where such an endeavor might have sparked controversy, Takeshi's community embraced the idea with open arms. Neighbors didn't just offer moral support; they actively participated in the building process, helping to lay down the track and even celebrating its completion.
The track, which now features an arch labeled "#FamilyDriveway," stands as a tribute to the collective effort and the support of Takeshi's wife and children. It's a heartwarming story of a community coming together to support one of their own in realizing a dream. The creation of this track goes beyond just providing a space for drifting; it symbolizes a shared passion for cars and a testament to the power of community. As Takeshi and his neighbors enjoy the fruits of their labor, they have also set an inspiring example of what can be achieved when people come together for a common love.
