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.

Just like how lions and gazelles share the same waterholes in Africa, D1SL machines and kei vans sometimes share the same fuel pumps in Japan.
Yuusuke Kitaoka has a boring daily driver as well, but prefers to also use his 600HP 2JZ Mark II to drive and watch his friends at drift events, visit his parents’ house and sometimes pick his girlfriend up from the train station.
“It’s really embarrassing when he does, because everyone stares at us!” she said.

I received a call the other morning from Yuusuke Kitaoka asking if I’d like to go and watch some of his friends driving at Okegawa Sports Land.
Since his car has no rear seat, and his girlfriend Yuki was coming along too, I had to drive there as well. This wasn’t too much of a problem as far as I’m concerned, and Yuki actually ended up riding in my car anyway because I still have a comfortable factory seat on the passenger’s side.
Yes, his car does actually have registration, if you were wondering.

Here’s a demonstration by D1 Street Legal driver Yuusuke Kitaoka on how to take the judged hairpin at Tsukuba Circuit.
First, come in with as much speed and angle as you can.

I was a fan of this particular car before I had even bought the Skyline in Japan, and I’m an even bigger fan now that Yuusuke Kitaoka has the BN Sports Type III bodykit.
More to come from Maze D1 Street Legal soon.
