In Primorye will be held D1 PrimRing Grand Prix Russia - Japan

Representatives of the D1 world drift series from Japan visited the Primorskoye Koltso STK with an inspection. Together with representatives of the Primorsky Ring, the Russian Drift Series (RDS) and the Primorsky Automobile Federation, they spoke about its results at a press conference, the press service of the head of the Primorsky Territory reports.

According to Vitaly Verkeenko, General Director of STK Primorskoye Koltso, the Japanese guests saw a high level of readiness for the event - from September 19 to 21, 2014, Primorye will host the D1 PrimRing Grand Prix, the Russia-Japan drift battle.

“In addition to a bright show, a wonderful sporting event, our pilots will have an excellent opportunity to compete with the champions of Japan, with the world champions. Such an opportunity is not always and not for everyone; it is required to go through many qualifying stages. But our riders will get this opportunity. So everyone is welcome! ”Added Vitaly Verkeenko.

According to the general manager of the D1 series Toshiyuki Oya, the best racers in Japan will compete for the victory in this tournament.

“Many Japanese pilots wanted to participate in this competition, but chose only 8 worthy ones. They are all really eminent and talented pilots. I will dwell on two names: this is the last year's world champion - Masato Kawabato and the second driver - Daigo Saito, ”said the D1 manager.

According to the chief judge of the tournament Hisashi Kamimoto, the athletes will be judged by an impartial electronic rating system.

“We will use the electronic DOSS system. GPS sensors will be located along the route, which will transmit information about the speed, the angle of the route, the sharpness of the vehicle. This will maximally exclude bias and inaccuracies in refereeing. However, the judging system in D1 does not preclude the presence of judges. What DOSS does not see, we see and add data, ”the judge said.

As the organizer and chief judge of the RDS Vostok, Dmitry Semenyuk, said, Russian drivers are also awaiting qualifications, but they are all set to fighting.

“Russian racers Gocha Chivchyan, who participated in D1 last year, Arkady Tsaregradtsev, will come to us. From the Far East, we note the multiple winner of the RDS Vostok Ilya Fedorov, he also participated in D1 last year, Makar Chernysh, Ekaterina Sedykh also have every chance to compete, ”Dmitry Semenyuk emphasized.

According to Vitaly Verkeenko, General Director of STK Primorskoye Koltso, this drift battle between the best racers of Russia and Japan will attract great attention to the Primorsky Territory.

“Sport is followed by business, big business. And for our region this is a good opportunity to make the words that speak about the investment climate and business cooperation come true. In addition, we are considering other spheres of cooperation related to culture, with the drift school, with the possibility of holding other events under the auspices of D1 in the Primorsky Territory, ”concluded Vitaly Verkeenko.
