2017 TOUR Highlights

Nissan Heritage Garage

On the first day of the tour you’ll take an exclusive trip to the Nissan Heritage Collection at the Zama facility, home of the Nissan DNA Garage. Although this facility is not open to the public, Nissan has graciously welcomed the DSPORT TAS Tour to visit each year. With examples ranging from the earliest machines, like 1930s Datsun models, Prince Skylines from the 1960s and Nissan’s S30 Fairlady Zs up to today’s R35 GT-R, over 400 vehicles chronicled the company’s long and illustrious history. Numerous racecars that Nissan campaigned in a variety of disciplines, from rally to Super GT, are also displayed, along with rare machines like a one-of-a-kind, street-legal R390 GT1 Le Mans and a widebody R33 Skyline GT-R LM. Some Nissan engineers and other staff are on hand to serve as tour guides during our walk through Nissan’s history. These knowledgeable individuals share interesting facts, details and the background of key vehicles in the collection, helping us to understand why the cars were built the way they were.

DSPORT Tuner Challenge

Included in the DSPORT Tokyo Auto Salon Tour is our first competition track event in Japan, the DSPORT Tuner Challenge.  We teamed up with T&E VERTEX to give you an opportunity of a lifetime.  You’ll get ride alongs in pro D1 drift cars around the famed Mobara Circuit.  Then hang back as the pro drivers compete in a drift competition and grip car sessions right in front of you.  Throughout the day you’ll be able to meet and greet with your favorite drivers such as Takahiro Ueno of T&E VERTEX.  This is your chance to get up close and personal with D1 and FD Japan cars on the same track at the same time!

UPGarage

UpGarage is famous for its second-hand performance parts and bargain prices. In our past tours attendees walked away with a variety of parts, from headlights and taillights to Recaro seats. Just last year DSPORT publisher Michael Ferrara made off like a bandit. He uncovered an out-of-production HKS 3037 1.01 a/r turbine housing worth US$400-500 for only US$5. He also found a rare and hard to find US$7,600 GT-R transfer case for only US$80. Feature editor Richard Fong found a set of Marchesini magnesium motorcycle wheels mounted with lightly used Bridgestone Battlax tires for US$950 shipped to America. The wheels alone retailed for over US$3,000. A special agreement with Up Garage made all of the purchases duty free, while the company’s international shipping division, Croooober, was available to help facilitate the transportation of bulky items back home.
