Pictures by Eric Dorman The car is practically brand new, but the festival devoted to it is already an institution. We’re talking about 86FEST, the car show devoted to the trio of Hachi-Roku cars—the 1980s Toyota Corolla AE86 and its current-day successors, the new Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ, both of which were code named the FT86 prior to production. All three have stellar reputations in drifting circles. All three are rear-wheel drive. And all three were well-represented at the second 86FEST, held at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, CA. The Dorman brothers were there to capture the moment.
