News comes to us from the international staff at Tomei Powered in Machida that Naoki Nakamura, the reigning champion of the D1SL series in 2010 and here pictured with Takuya Hamakawa of Car Studio (D-Max), is now set to return for the 2011 season. In what competition you ask? We have very informed ideas about that…
The main point here is that, as 7tune reported, Keiichi Tsuchiya is looking to start a new series very shortly and we can confirm after having spoken to Dorikin about the matter, that the new series will begin this year between March and April. This places nicely for a man looking to bounce back and make amends.
This also ties in well with the budding ambitions of a talented driver who buys his products from a well established company like Tomei Powered. This show of commitment might be just the tonic needed in a difficult situation such as this.
While not wishing to take a stance that condones the actions of Nakamura, there is no denying his ability on a circuit and that is the place that web want to see him excel, so 7tune would like to wish him all the best in his endeavors for the 2011 season.
