Touge Club

The term "Touge" refers to the mountain passes of Japan. While racing down these narrow, winding roads cars began to lose traction and began sliding through corners. Eventually, drivers would control their slide and try to keep it sideways as long as possible and the sport of drifting was soon born in the land of the rising sun.

Here in the USA, drivers have been running the canyons for many years mainly gripping the turns for speed and pleasure. Before the sport of drifting exploded in America, the "Touge" was one of the few outlets for drivers to practice and hone their drifting skills. Today, you will find a wide variety of groups who run the "Touge", some come for the pure enjoyment of challenging the mountain while others come to battle to be the best.

Need for Speed Carbon
Yes, the touge battles here are actually pretty fun and intense. Roads can get very narrow at times and if you get too close to the edge you can find yourself crashing off the mountain. I love the lead and chase format and the way the headlights are used in the night battles. Also, drifting challenges are here on the touge which have some of the best courses for drifting all the way down the mountain. Last but not least you can battle touge-style online...nuff said.

Test Drive Unlimited
As a mass multiplayer online racing game you will have to search a bit for the mountain courses on this real life map of Oahu, Hawaii. Most popular place is Tantalus and its winding roads. You can find people running uphill and downhill so challenge them or just practice till you get better. Great way to meet others online who share the same interest.

Tokyo Xtreme Racer Drift
I believe this is just a port over from Japan titled game, Kaido Battle. The japanese version was one of the best touge games in the day. Not too many courses but the drifting and touge-style battles are still legendary in the Live Sockets offices. It's a PS2 game so nothing yet for the next gen, but still the closest you'll get to JDM touge runs.
