It might not be as high profile as the D1 Grand Prix but I still hope you guys enjoyed the more grassroots Street Legal East coverage from Nikko this week.
To finish up I’ve selected five of my favorite shots from the day, like Andrew Gray above getting on the power hard as he exits the main judged corner…
…and of course the Red K Stagea, as it’s not every day you see a big wagon drifting around!
A few of you seemed to like this very serious looking FC…
Is there a stream or post-race video of these races anywhere? What with the tight circuits, talented drivers and street-legal cars there isn't much more one could want from a drifting series! Also was the contact between Gray and Saitou really enough of a race-changing event to warrant a complaint?
Who can ever be "Happy" with 2nd place after 2 Sudden Deaths :D Thanks to Dino and Speedhunters for the awesome coverage. I really hope we can see more of the action from the 2012 series here on SH. I guarantee all action and no politics.... what D1 Street Legal is Famous for! Congrats to Saitou-san on the win. We will do it again im sure :D
awesome, is the east divisional going to get full coverage this year dino, or at least as much as is possible to do?
great coverage of some real entertaining action - i always like to see some hard fought competitive Drift action - judging by that pic, are we sure 'Andy was happy'.. - Thanks

Nice coverage! Man i so want to buy a Street Legal DVD now. But it's no so easy to get when you live in germany :x
Sweet! I missed the Japanese drifting coverage! As for the desktops... hmm, how about the picture of the FC? Haha, this is so tempting... I know I request a lot of high res pictures.
Dino, you are my favorite speedhunter! You always bring the goodness with this type of coverage! I cannot wait to see more from this event.
That first pic of Andy is sooo good! Got to frame that and put it on his wall. Nice Stagea at the end too. Stu
