Continuing on with Hyper Meeting coverage, we’ll head out to the circuit where some of the time attack and races were taking place. HKS’s R35 GT1000 was on hand putting in a couple hot […]
I’m so behind on coverage of pretty much every event in Japan it’s killing me. Hyper Meeting, still have the last of the HKS Premium Day coverage (which is long overdue), several drift events […]
Throwing it back to last year when Jay and I stopped by Kunny’z to say hi to Kuniaki-san and Masahiko-san, seen here rocking the Uggs. I had met Kunny-san awhile back briefly, but had […]

In 2004, the sport of drifting had become commercialized enough, that promoters knew it was time to bring it overseas. D1GP was introduced in America with the start of the USA vs. Japan series that took place at Irwindale Speedway. My friend sent these over to me recently, and I figured since Formula D just wrapped up the season at Irwindale, it would be a good time to post these up. Needless to say, the heavy hitters from Japan look much younger! Hopefully they invoke some nostalgia into you guys and we can all remember what this sport is really about.
I apologize for my absence as of late. While I may have been invisible, I didn’t forget I ran a blog. In fact, I’ve been working on new graphic designs for some vinyl that will be available at the end of the month. I know I keep saying that, but I mean it this time. The more I looked at my previous designs, the less pleased I became with them. So while I toil away behind my monitor, I’ll let you soak up some eye candy at last month’s D1GP event in Odaiba. Let’s take a little walk through the pits past the break.
I know you’re thinking right now, “Two back to back featured car posts?! I don’t believe it.” Well, believe it. That’s just how awesome we are. All jokes aside, I’m not sure why it took me so long to post this car up, as it has massive popularity among drift fans. D1-GP reverse-entry guru Masato Kawabata is the man responsible for piloting this ridiculously hot, 600 horsepower 180sx sideways through all the corners. I spotted the S all alone, basking in the light at the Toyo Tires booth as we were getting ready to take off from the Auto Salon in search of another UP Garage. So I decided to get up close and personal with it. Sit back and enjoy the shots!
