D1 Street Legal at Ebisu

Here we have some pics from the cars that GP sports prepared for the D1 Street Legal series. While D1GP still gets huge crowds, they stay at home for the D1SL series. Not sure why, by looking at the pictures I feel that there are some really nice cars competing.

I think the major problem is with the D1 is the scoring method. Yes I know you will get points for angle, clipping points and smoke, but that’s not always how it goes. There’s too much politics involved, a shame really.


V Factory S15 that finished 6th, car has the GP Sports full bodykit and their signature Gravity Gullflame rims in a bronze finish


GP Sports GDB Impreza finished 5th, a really good effort.


Really nice S14A that didn’t got past the best 16. again with the Gullflame rims this time in a silver finish


Massive JZX110 tearing up Ebisu circuit, Toshiharu Kazama is piloting this car for his company Kazama auto. Bodykit is made by Kazama himself and the rims are a set of Gramlights 57maximum.


And here we have the winner Naoto Suenaga, he is driving this s13 for Drift Extreme and is sponsored by the famous Team Orange. In the final he went up against the D-max S15.

D1GP Season Opener

Sometimes you make a friendly request and ask for some pictures, this time I didn’t got what I requested but maybe I got something even better. I got 700 pictures from the D1GP season opener from last week.

Major thanks to Andrew at Powervehicles, he also exported my ER34 Skyline.

Mazda FD RX7 driven by Tsutomo Huzio, the car has a complete URAS bodykit. He would not finish because he got didn’t get past the first round

JZZ30 Toyota Soarer driven by Osamu Akira, with a full BN Sports bodykit and deep dish Work Meister S1’s. Too bad he did not quailified, would have loved to see this beast take it up against Ken Nomura

Nissan PS13 driven by Kazuto Itiyanagi, this car wears full Origin Aero. Did not get past the first round.

The new VIP drifter Toyota Crown driven by Masayoshi Tokita and the familiar Skyline R324 from Bee*R driven by Tsoyoshi Tezuka. Tokita finished 13th and Tezuka finished 11th, not a good start for the Bee*R boys

Never saw this JZX100 Toyota Chaser driven Robbi Nishida before, after some asking around it seemed that this is the road car of Daigo Sato. Robbi Nishida is a US Formula D competitor. Really cool that he got too drive with the big guns and I hope he takes some of his experience back to the states.

The infamous Team Orange cars, Tanaka finished third in his Impreza. I think the need to wrok some more magic on their EVO because they finished 12th

The Nissan S15 from Team Toyo driven by Tatsuya Sakuma, in the back you see the number one car. That’s the car driven by Kawabata who would win the first round.

Nissan S15 driven by Youichi Imamura, he would finish 7th
