Masato Kawabata & Takahiro Imamura Amaze the Crowd

Toyo Tires Malaysia

Toyo Tires was again omnipresent for the 3rd Round of the Toyota Gazoo Race Series, held at Medini Iskandar Puteri, Johor on 19th and 20th January. Three-time All-Japan D1 Drift Champion and Drift World Record holder Masato Kawabata of Team Toyo Tires Drift Trust and ‘Drift Samurai’ Takahiro Imamura made their presence felt among the crowd who gave the drivers an enthusiastic welcome.

Throughout the weekend Kawabata and Imamura blitzed the drift circuit with their unique brand of free-form drifting, thrilling the packed venue and filling the air with the smell of burnt rubber from their tyres that withstood the punishment they were subjected to on both days. This was hailed as a testament to the high quality and robustness of the Toyo tyres. Both drivers were able to extract the most out of their cars to give a great performance that was certainly enjoyed by all those present.
