I’m not going to bother doing a big event report on this year’s Nikko Queen event, since a lot of the stuff I shot would be more fun as part of a few mini-features, so look forward to those.
Just to get the formalities out of the way though, here are the ladies who placed in the Expert Class competition!
First Place was Akari Nagasawa. It’s rare to see anyone drive Nikko Circuit’s first corner as neatly and consistently as she did all day. A quick flick in, stomp on the brakes to settle the car and full acceleration right out wide towards the judging stand with not a single bit of visible handbrake correction.
I have something new to try next time I drive at Nikko, I think…
Keep in mind, her boyfriend is D1 Street Legal driver Hideyuki Fujino, so you can imagine the sort of conversations that go on between those two.12 Comments
While we’re on the subject of videos, take a look at Jesse Streeter’s latest wall-scraping video from Meihan Sports Land.
Jesse is a fellow Australian and friend of mine who lives in Osaka, and you probably would have seen him on the previous video with Vaughn if somebody had remembered to call him (sorry Jesse!). The video was shot and edited by Laurence Janus (otherwise known as Mr L) without a single bit of pointless slow-motion!

So here’s what happened.
A train of missile cars in an Expert Class session, led by D1 drivers Daigo Saito and Yukio Matsui, drifted into the first corner at Okegawa Circuit, a small go-kart-style track in Saitama Prefecture. The S13 driver, who was at the back of the group, came in a little bit too hot and was unable to see a stationary Mazda that had spun out just moments before. I’ll let the following pictures speak for themselves.10 Comments
