Contrary to the name, FD Tech Day didn’t actually include the technical inspection of any cars, unlike in years past. Despite that, there were a handful of liveries which were revealed at tech day, several of which we previewed earlier.
Confirming our rumor, Daigo Saito’s GT-R was not only confirmed to be in the US, but was wrapped live at the tech day, which was a cool experience. The livery still carries the black, green, and purple of the Achilles Radial liveries of years past, but has a cool digital camo type of pattern to it.
Dave Briggs also went green and black with his livery, although he revealed that he will be in Hankook Tires, not Achilles like last season.
Charles Ng showed probably the most dramatic livery change, with major sponsorship from Maxxis Tires and SparkPlugs.com. Speedhunters looks to still be involved in the program, but in a much less way than last year.
Ken Gushi’s FR-S livery is very similar to the livery he ran on last year’s Pikes Peak car, but still carries a lot of the elements of last season’s drift livery.
Finally, Jeff Jones’ livery was already revealed earlier, but we are big fans of the livery now that we have seen it in person.
