Taka Aono: A Retrospect

Somewhat fitting after yesterday’s post on the 2010 season of Formula D kicking off, today’s post is a homage to the guy who some might say is the hardest working AE86 driver in the USA: Taka Aono.  This video by the AE86-loving DeadPirate crew is a recap of Taka’s season in 2009.  Seriously great editing and an awesome soundtrack too.

AE86’s @ Formula D 2010

Anontio and the crew over at MotorMavens have got their coverage up of the first round of the 2010 Formula D at Long Beach in the USA. Good to see a few hachirokus represented, especially the  (now pink and yellow) Trueno monster of Taka Aono. Jump over to MM now and check out the pics!


The Road To Heaven

…would be made like this.  What a sweet bunch of corners! If you didnt already guess the star of the show, it’s the awesome-sounding Custom Garage Speed N2 Levin. Who says circuit cars can’t drift?
