When I was at Nikko Circuit the other week shooting the video in the previous post, I also took a few pics of the Ito Auto/Project Mu D1SL cars as they were out practicing.

First car on the team is the Ito Auto’s boss, “Manki” Ito in his JZX100 Chaser.

Second is Kitaoka, who is currently ranked third in the D1SL series. His car features their new JZX overfender kit, which is good for those who don’t want to go for a full widebody.

On the other hand, Masuda’s Mark II has a Vertex Ridge widebody kit, which completely covers the rear doors and fenders.

Naoki Nakamura, who was also there practicing for D1SL, kept butting into the shots. Not that I’m complaining.

The four cars on the team wear Project Mu’s colours, as well as Project Mu’s mascot character, imaginatively named “Miu”, which is a fairly typical Japanese girls name.

Love how big these cars look.

Nakamura in the way again. Not that I’m complaining.

    Nice shots Alexi,

    Good to see Nakamura-san hasn’t blown away my Roughsmoke stickers on the rear quarter yet.. But I’m sure it won’t be long.

    I haven’t caught you in passing yet, we’ve spoken by email, but my trips to Nikko and Tsukuba seem to have missed you. But hopefully in the next month or two I’ll be a full time Chiba resident so I’m sure we’ll be jousting for lens position soon. Keep the posts going sir, and liking the photos, you’ve improved and I like a lot.

    Take it easy mate and see you out there soon.

    Regards,

    Les.
