D1GP Dopeness >>> Round 1 Odaiba

Photo of Daigo in a drivers meeting from Formula Drift Long Beach.

After traveling to the United States to compete in his first Formula Drift round here in America and finishing in third place, Daigo Saito was soon on his way back to Japan to get ready for the first round of D1 Grand Prix in Tokyo. So far, he’s killing it in both the Formula Drift and D1 series as he now has a third place and first place finish to his name in 2012. Although he’s not competing in all of the D1GP events, he has stated that he is fully committed to both the Formula Drift USA and Formula Drift Asia series. He’s had an aggressive start to the season and we can’t wait to see how he drives the rest of the year! If you’d like to know a little more about Daigo, Achilles Radial, and his teammate Robbie Nishida, watch this video here.

Here are the top three drivers from the event:

1. Daigo Saito
2. Yoshinori Koguchi
3. Masao Suenaga
