During the first practice session on Saturday morning, the drifters were lining up and taking their turns to learn the track. Judges are not required to do anything yet but all three of them were there anyway to watch the drifters practise.
M. Hermawan of Indonesia was doing a run when Daijiro Yoshihara went, “HEY that looks like my car!” I already saw Hermawan’s car in the pits but it didn’t occur to me that it bears a striking resemblance to Dai’s Discount Tire S13 until Dai mentioned it. Then again, seeing the car close up in the pits is not quite the same as seeing it from higher ground at a distance.
Here are some comparisons…
They do look similar huh?
