Former 2008 D1GP champion Daigo Saito will be running in Formula D for the 2012 season. Daigo has taken the 2011 Formula Drift Asia Series by storm by winning three consecutive events and will be joining Robbie Nishida and the Bridges Racing Team for this season’s run at the championship. But the big question remains: Will Saito remain competitive in his soon-to-be-campaigned SC430 rumored to make over 1,000 hp? Stay tuned as the ninth season of Formula Drift officially kicks off with round one at The Streets of Long Beach.

The latest drifting news from Japan also includes Toyota-backed JGTC/D1 Driver Orido “Max” Manabu and his nearly completed Toyota 86 D1 car. But wait . . . that’s no boxer engine in there! That’s a 2UR-GSE 5L V-8 out of a Lexus IS-F that’s currently being built to make over 550 whp . . . naturally aspirated, of course! Working alongside his sponsors who include M7, Yokomo, Advan, NATS, Digicam, and Drive, rest assured this will be one eight-cylinder monster that’s sure to have his fellow drift competitors shaking in their helmets!
