The Babbitt Bank Trophy – Dirt Racing in Japan

The Babbitt Bank Trophy – Dirt Racing in Japan

I’ve said it before- Being a hot rodder in Japan requires serious dedication. Narrow roads, expensive parking, and strict vehicle laws… Not to mention any old part you might need likely has to be shipped from the USA. Someone hatched the idea of a dirt track race located about an hour north of Tokyo in a rural farming town called Kawagoe. Watching the films below, the Babbitt Bank Trophy feels more like an exhibition of rooster tails than a true competition, but at least the boys are having some fun playing in dirt…

Video maker below says “Apologies in advance for my terrible Texas accent.”

NOTE: Looks like Panhead Pete already posted about the event here:
