Just when you thought the Tectaloy drift challenge couldn’t get any bigger we are proud to announce a second professional D1 driver from Japan.
Hailing from Hokkaido in Northern Japan, Takahiro Ueno is one of the most highly regarded competitors in the D1 series in Japan. He also raced successfully in the USA and is most famous for his exploits in the red Vertex Toyota Soarer however in recent years has been behind the wheel of a Toyota 2JZ powered 335 BMW. Australians will now have the chance to see TWO PROFESSIONAL JAPANESE D1 DRIVERS go head to head as Ueno takes on Yoshiking. It will also put the best in Australian drifting to the ultimate test. Can they beat the Japanese at their own game?
Ueno-san will be supported by Vertex Australia and will be driving one of their high powered Toyota Soarers with tyre support from Yokohama Japan. Do not miss this!!
