"Winning today at Ebisu was like nothing else, to be able to go door to door with some of my inspirational drift racers out of Japan and take the win was just amazing. It was such a team effort, everything came together today, we were focused and on point. We are so stoked to now be leading the Formula Drift World Championship"
Ebisu is the home of drift for Japan and it's an honour to be competing here against the world's best and some truly inspirational drivers on their home soil. With 9 different tracks in Ebisu to choose from, Formula Drift did a great job in selecting this section of track.
Kawato san and his team from TCP Magic did a great job preparing the car, it felt super strong and responsive on the track. The RX7 chassis really feels like an extension of my body when I drive it, it's a chassis I'm really familiar with and I have been driving one since the beginning of my career.
I'm so proud to represent TCP Magic and put them onto the top step of the podium. Huge thanks to Kawato san and his team and also Toni and JT for being a massive part of us being able to accomplish this win.
Arigato Gozaimas to Robbie Nishida, Shane and everyone else in Osaka, Tokyo and Ebisu who helped out in some way
