M7 Japan Takes D1GP, Again . . . We Think - 411

Aug 19, 2011

You may recall the funny Engrish P.R. in our Nov. '10 issue that announced the victory of our boy and M7-sponsored Nobuteru "NOB" Taniguchi in Japan’s HECOMR Integra one-make race series. You might also remember a few months later, in the Feb. '11 issue, where we announced that the 2010 D1GP drifting champs was clenched by none other than M7 RX-7 pilot Yoichi Imamura (with Masao Suenaga clenching Third in the M7 S15). Well, it seems that M7 Japan is back in the winner’s circle, thanks to M7-sponsored Manabu "Max" Orido’s latest D1GP victory at Japan’s Autopolis, in Oita prefecture. At least that’s what we think their latest JDM email says. We’ll let you decide:

"D1 Grand Prix Round 3 that started in bad weather in Autopolis. Defend champ Yoichi Imamura and Third Place Masao Suenaga had fought hard against the road of wet.

Did not advance to the chased run tournament by Masao Suenaga due to the machine trouble. It becomes running that waits for the recovery shrouded, and the chase run that finally restarts has been discontinued because of rain and fog. This be can start the D1 Grand Prix and the first doing within 11 years.

Tentative of Manabu Orido the top was splendidly decided to the result based on the order of a single run of second stage. It became an opening game that the activity in the future was able to be expected this year’s series champion of Manabu Orido!"
