A look at D1GP wouldn’t be complete without a stroll through the Sponsors’ paddock to check out the demo cars on display and to empty our wallet on mountains of JDM merchandise and goods!
As we walked into Suzuka Circuit, the first booth we saw was the Liberty Walk booth. It wasn’t hard to miss either with the same stunning sky blue hue painted on both of the demo cars. While we’ve seen countless images on the internet, we weren’t really prepared for how awesome the LB cars are in person. The Ferrari 458 had so much presence lying on the floor leaving only millimeters between the body and concrete.
Massive carbon ceramic rotors and LB Works brakes filled the Forgiato Dieci-ECL wheels to perfection.
Kleers sponsored 370z was clean as you’d expect!
D1 Street Legal R34 from MJ Style was fitted with Project Mu brakes all round and sat outside the Project Mu Booth
Wheel manufacturers had a huge presence. Rays had the mighty Ben Sopra kitted R35 on display.
Prodrive s15 fitted with widebody Vertex Edge kit…
Work Wheels had a tasty selection of their catalogue on display. Such a hard choice between them! Which would you choose?
While we left D1GP a little bit sun burnt…we thankfully managed to get away without too much damage inflicted on our wallets!! That’s because we still had a trip to the Nismo Omori factory planned! Keep an eye out for the next part of our Japan trip!
