The GReddy 35RX Dspec GT-R wins in Nagoya

Ken Block's Nagoya Experience D1GP Stars Winner!
   Masato Kawabata - Team Toyo Drift x TRUST Racing 35RX Dspec GT-R

On July 5th, Ken Block returned to Japan for a huge demo featuring 12 of the top D1 Grand Prix drifters.  Or very own Masato Kawabata in the Team Toyo Tires Drift x TRUST Racing 35RX Dspec GT-R, not only qualified no.1, but came out victorious in an unusually tight and strangely decorated Gymkhana-like course to over 9,000 Japanese fans.

Being the winner of the D1 Tandem battle, Kawabata won a chance to challenge the purpose built AWD Ford of Ken Block.  We have to say, for a large, high-speed pro-drift car like the 35RX GT-R, was surprisingly competitive at the hands of Kawabata!
