Name: Jimmy Yates

“Z33 -> s13 (180sx) -> R32

The evolution of my style is a reflection of my confidence.

I’ve tried to combine everything that I know and love into a vehicle that brings me JYW0rld.”

Who influenced you to develop the drift style you have?

“Drift style as in street style? Never wanted to go into professional drifting because to me it seems to be a pissing match. Whoever has the most money. I love to see the humble , doing more with less, underdog street cars that are just too cool. Something someone built themselves, that expresses them and looks that it shouldn’t be drifting but at a car show or Sunday driver.”

When did you first get truly excited about drifting?

“The first lap in the R32. I got it about 2 weeks before an event, never drifted it but when I did, everything just clicked for me.”
