Good-bye, Sumika’s 180sx!

This is the 180sx of Sumika Kubokawa, Drift Queen of D1Ladies League, called Kiiro san.

During three years, she’s used this car, and now she’s going to change to another.  This car was with her while she joined the Team Orange, when she gained the licence for the Street Leagal, when she won the first Ladies League, and etc..  Sumika has lots of good and important memories with this car.  Of course for us as well.  It’s a pitty but she’s going to show us good drift with her new car and share nice time with us.. Good bye, Kiiro san!  Thank you for your good job♥

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.. ♥
