From an early age Daigo Saito was into motorbikes as his father was, and got his motorcycle license at 16. One night when he was out riding with his friends they stumbled upon a drift meeting in the hills of Karuizawa, there he saw a white Mercedes-Benz saloon drifting. From then on he wanted to drift himself and he wanted to drift a saloon.

As soon as he was 18 he got his drivers license, his father did not want him to drift so bought him a Mini Cooper as his first car. At this time he did not know that it would not be a good car to drift so he tried, and ended up writing it off. He then bought a Nissan Silvia S13 without asking his parents and set about practicing, his first practice session lasted 36 hours only stopping for food and fuel. He learned a lot from this first practice session though he totaled the Nissan Silvia S13 a couple of weeks later.

The rest is history. Did you know that Saito holds the distinction of being the first driver to win the two drifting majors, D1GP in 2008 and Formula D in 2012? Daigo is known for fast entry speeds, insane angle, and the only guy drifting a Lamborghini Murcielago professionally. Daigo has become a sensation regarding the drift scene. Some critics say that Daigo Saito is the world’s greatest contemporary drifter – whether it’s in his Nissan GT-R in Formula D or Murcielago in D1 Grand Prix.
