Leon grows up in Japan. After a major tragedy his family is split apart and his mother decides to move back to New Zealand. In this new and foreign country, Leon tries to put his past behind, but when he attends a drifting competition with his friend Byron it all comes flooding back and his passion is reignited. He is able to help one of the drift racers with his car problems and one event leads to another. Before he knows it, he spirals into an exciting world of adrenaline, fast cars and high-speed chases.

Soon he becomes a top competitor himself and things could not be better when he meets Lorna, a smart and beautiful girl. Yet little does he know that danger and death are lurking just around the corner. Can he, against all odds, overcome those that will stop at nothing to beat him?

The 180SX poured down the straight and then pivoted so that her front end angled back the way she had come and she essentially skidded backwards at over 100km/h, before pivoting back and her front end took the lead again on entry of the sweeper.
