Ebisu Minami Jump by Sumika

Every year D1GP and D1SL are celebrated in the Minami Course at Ebisu Circuit.
As you know, this course is very famous as a difficult track.  The D1 drivers start from the downslope and compete through the last corner.  The downslope is not horizontal; the inside of the slope is steeper than the outside.  If they pass there at high speed, the body of the car comes off the ground.  During the D1GP in 2009 Tetsuya Hibino started to solve that problem by jumping.  Since then, several drifters have entered the courner jumping.  I saw impresive high jumps by Tetsuya Hibino and Daigo Saito.  Their jump were really awesome.

On the 19th and 20th of May the D1SL was celebrated there.  Just one day before the competition our Drift Queen, Sumika Kubokawa  started to try to jump there.

  

She tried it during the qualifying race and she got the 3rd position.. ^^  I’ve got her video on board during the practice time..

Enjoy it with Sumika.. ♥
