Dear D1GP USA Fans,

There have been some questions with respect to Team Vertex and their involvement with the Drift Avengers team. After speaking with their representatives today we learned that Team Vertex and Takahiro Ueno were provided sponsorship by the Drift Avengers after the event in Anaheim on May 2nd. As most teams would, they accepted this sponsorship in good faith. Due ot the recent events that have transpired, Team Vertex and Takahiro Ueno will be returning their sponsor benefits to the Drift Avengers and promptly remove themselves from involvement with the Drift Avengers team. Team Vertex and Takahiro Ueno will remain a part of the D1GP USA series.

Respectfully,

D1 Grand Prix USA

Too bad......Too sad for the Drift Avengers. The Drift Avengers lost Forrest Wang, Takahiro Ueno, and Vertex all in one week. Wow wow wow.

At least they still have Jbizzle and Dr. Zizzle on their team.

Ueno was part of drift avengers?

oh.

I didn't see a sticker on his car or anything that would indicate such.

Glad he saw the light and has moved on

It's probably best for Uenosan not to be associated with the other "DA".

Vertex makes high quality products, they deserved to be represented/sponsored by high quality affiliates.

Also, don't buy fake Vertex they're not worth the cheaper price.

Hello,

It is true that we are no longer sponsored by the Drift Avengers. We have left Drift Avengers on good terms.

It was in our best interest to return sponsorship after the conflict between Drift Avengers and D1GP USA. We have made the decision with our partners, Car Make T&E, and Ueno san to return sponsorship with the understanding of the Drift Avengers.

Thank you very much. Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

It's good that you handle it in such a professional manner.
Always like your products and it's refreshing to see a reputable company like Vertex doing the right thing with class.

Dont buy any fake aero its not worth it. If you cant afford $$$ aero DMax is good quality and reasonably priced and its not knock off.
