Taka Aono is one of a handful of professional drivers in the US to compete in every round of Formula Drift since its inception in 2004. He is, however, the only driver to do so in the same chassis -- the Toyota Corolla AE86. As the sport has progressed, the common belief is that the AE86, with its light weight, low horsepower, and short wheelbase, is no longer competitive in professional level drifting. 2012 marked the first year in the history of Formula Drift where there was only one AE86 in the grid at every competitive round -- Taka Aono and his Flying 86.
