An announcment: ９ｔｈ December ２０１０
Thank you so much for always supporting D1.
Today I have an announcement to make. I, Keiichi Tsuchiya, and Daijiro Inada, the founder of D1GP will resign from the D1 Corporation. This decision was made due to the irresponsible management such as ignoring fans, participants and sponsors. In order to make the D1GP beneficial to everyone, we have persistently asked for improvement but they have rejected our demands and have come up with this unwilling consequence.
Please accept our heartfelt apology and forgive us for our act. We will restart our career and do our best for the future of drift. We plan to realize drift events so that fans, participants and sponsors could all be satisfied with.
We appreciate your everlasting support and understanding.
We will continue to provide information about further activities through our homepage.
Check out some footage from the land of the rising sun… Compliments of our friend on the spot Robert Fischer.
Burbank, CA – 7/28/2010– D1 Worldwide Entertainment, (www.d1gp.com), the official organizers of automotive entertainment’s premier drifting events in the United States announced today the 2010 USA D1 Grand Prix event line-up will be delayed to the 2011 Season.
D1 Corporation, Japan initiated conversations with American organizers last week to discuss the U.S. events and their late season start. It was determined that potentially the quality of the events would be compromised and therefore the D1 brand would be better served by pushing the organization of these events into the to-be-determined 2011 D1 Grand Prix season.
The 2010 D1 Grand Prix on SPEED™ will run as scheduled for its premiere on September 4, 2010 at 6:00PM Eastern Standard Time. The television series will now focus on the eight D1 2010 Grand Prix events emanating from Japan which include multiple North American drifting drivers competing head to head with the greatest drifters in the world. The premiere episode will include U.S. favorites Samuel Hubinette, Mike Pollard and Forrest Wang. Additionally, viewers will find Fox Sport Net running repeats of the10 episodes; dates and times to be announced.
