New 2009 D1Japan Drift Cars Revealed – Mustang, Evo X, BMW

It’s a brand new year and a new 2009 D1GP drift season is about to begin here in Japan!

With the new season also comes a few new D1 drift cars. It’s always cool to see a new line up of cars from your favorite D1 GP Japan drivers.

Kumakubo’s New Evo 10 Drift machine!

Kumakubo from Team Orange has yet another orange Evo drift car. He will debut in his newly prepped Lancer Evo X which he tested out at Tokyo Auto Salon earlier this month.


Rumors have it that Suenaga Naoto will be inherting Kuma’s old Evo 9 to drive in the 2009 D1 season. Naoto was driving the orange GC8 Impreza for the last couple of years.

2008 D1 Japan Champion Daigo Saito Switches to American Muscle!

2008 D1 GP Japan champ Saito Daigo will be driving this red Ford Mustang in the 2009 D1 Gp Japan drift competition adding some “international” spice to the D1 mix this year.

Daigo won last years D1 GP Japan championship in his dark red Mark II Chaser.

It’ll be interesting to see how this torquey American v8 machine handles on the Japanese drift circuits against the Japanese turbo units.

Some other changes to watch out for….

The color scheme of Suenaga Masao’s FD Rx7 which used to be wrapped in the sky blue Amemiya colors will be racing in white, green and black…still the same car though by the looks of it.

Another change is the blue Toyo 180sx behind him which is what the 2007 D1 champion Kawabta will be driving in 2009. He used to drive a S15 Silvia which won him the trophy in the

This slick new 355i BMW is Ueno Takahiro’s new drift machine!

Quite a radical change from the old red Vertex Soarer he was know for for so many years.

Apparently, the soarer is one of the hardest cars to drift. Good luck to him in his new “expensive” European weapon.

With a broad variety of new drift cars entering this years D1 season, it makes for some very interesting battles!

Can’t wait to go to the first round in Ebisu in March.

Stay tuned as next I’ll be posting the D1 GP 2009 Japan season calendar.

Cheers,
Stu
