Witnessing this car for the first time when I was 18 back in November 2010 at the final round of D1-SL at Tsukuba 1000 was mind blowing. The amount of media that travels around the internet of this one specific fellow and his car is incredible so here I am giving my 2 cents. These photos were taken at the first Meihan day we attended which was held by Kazuya Bai from B-West / Origin. The day consisted of many famous drivers including the D1-SL division so it was awesome to see them go as hard as they possibly could on such a small and tight circuit. Seeing Nakamura blaze around the left-hander onto the straight in the top of 3rd maintaining loss of traction whilst steering into the cement wall and transitioning the complete opposite way causing his moulded wing to sit flush on the wall was absolutely incredible.

Here you can see not only the rear spoiler but the exhaust both have evidence of riding along the wall of Meihan. One thing that gets me about this car is the colour combination, pink and purple with the touch of fluorescent yellow 57d’s. It’s just so Nakamura and has definitely had a big impact on drifters all over the globe. I’d also like to bring up another point, a little off subject of Nakamura but more towards my images in general. As you know I don’t watermark my photos, this doesn’t mean they aren’t copyright, because they are. If you’d like to use any of my images for any use whatsoever please don’t hesitate to drop me an email at: Casey@shirtstuckedin.com and I’m sure we can sort something out.

    Hang on, why don’t you watermark your photos? I know you’re only 19, but that’s no excuse for the naive belief that the Internet works on the honour system. In fact, younger folk should be even more acutely aware that the Internet is a lawless place.

    If you don’t watermark your photos, people will link to them or upload a copy without attribution. You can’t stop that.

    If you DO watermark and image thieves don’t attribute the photos to you, the watermark will still tell people where to go to find more of your awesome photos!

    Take it from a fellow photographer: politely requesting people not to steal your photos is not going to work, especially if that polite request is in microscopic text at the end of some blog post. Not watermarking = shooting yourself in the foot.
