It is also a symbol.In recent years, more and more original sponsor boxes have been posted at events hosted by players from D1 and events of D1 related companies.Many athletes take measures to hide or remove this sponsor box from above so that it will not be noticeable when using a D1 vehicle at Formula Drift Japan and other competitions.However, in rare cases it is unknown whether it is intentional or negligent, but there are players who will participate as it is, soIn tournaments other than D1, it can be a source of dispute.[Source required].

    In the past, there were no restrictions on the size of public road tires that are on the market, but from 2014 there was a limit of 285 widths (exception on the product catalog of the base vehicle). Only when the size of 285 width or more is set, the size of the stated width can be used.[Note 12]). From 2019 onwards, regardless of the base vehicle, the total weight of the vehicle and driver (including equipment) is up to 1275 width for vehicles less than 265 kg, and up to 285 width for other vehicles.

    The number of tires that can be used is within 3 sets (6 tires) after the single run final.

    Competition progress

    Single run

    Drift through two regular sections per player[Note 15], The ranking is decided by the score of the one with the highest score.The top 16 players win the follow-up tournament.In addition, the top 24 people will be given single-run series points, and the top 4 people will also be given driver's points.[23]..The player who ranked first in each round will be commended as a "single-run champion", and the player who ranked first in the annual single-run ranking will be commended as a "single-run champion".

    The scoring is done by the mechanical scoring system DOSS (detailed in the "Examination / Scoring" section below), and the speed, angle size, stability, etc. are quantified and scored.In addition to this, the judges will judge whether or not they have passed the designated zone, whether or not the drift has returned in the middle, whether or not they were able to run on the course, etc., and the points will be deducted from the DOSS score. The final score is calculated with[23], The ranking is decided. Since 2012, the final ranking when losing in the follow-up tournament described later is determined in descending order of the ranking in the single run, so it is becoming more important.

    Before 2018, there were "qualifying" and "final" in the single run. In 2009 and 2010, the knockdown method was adopted, in which the finals were run from the bottom of the qualifying.

    From 2011, the format was single-run qualifying (17th or lower in the series participated) → single-run final (top 12 in the qualifying + 16th in the series).Drivers within the 8th place in the series ranking will be seeded up to the 2nd stage of the follow-up regardless of the result (from 2012, regardless of the ranking, if they do not enter the 16th place in the single run final, they will not be able to proceed to the follow-up qualifying. ).

    In line with the fact that it was a two-day event in which single run and follow-up will be held on different days from 2014, players who are 24th or lower in the series (new car preferential treatment)[Note 16]In addition, a selection meeting was held by overseas preferential players and street legal top prize winners (excluding preferential treatment), and only players who passed it and players who were not eligible for the selection meeting could participate in the single run qualifying (as a result). The hurdle to participate in the main race has been raised).Two single-run qualifying rounds can be run, but one single-run final will be a one-run match, and the order will determine the placement of the follow-up tournament to be held the next day.The top eight players in the single-run final will be treated as seeds, exempt from the follow-up qualifying on the following day.

    From 2016, the top eight cars in the series have been exempted from qualifying as seed players.Then, a total of 8 cars, 16 cars that won the single run qualifying and 8 seeds, ran two runs in the single run final, and the single run ranking was decided using the one with the highest score.

    From 2017, in the single run final, the top 24 cars of the 1st out of 8 cars will be exempted from the 2nd run and advance to the follow-up, the remaining 16 cars will run the 2nd run, and the remaining 8 cars to proceed to the follow-up will be decided It became.

    From 2007 to 2010, all three will get 3 points.[Note 17]10 yen was given as the "Keiichi Tsuchiya Award".

    Follow-up tournament

    It will be contested in a tournament format with the top 16 single runners. Two vehicles will drift on the specified section at the same time and compete for the degree of proximity between the vehicles and the beauty of the simultaneous driving.Front car (Precedent) And the rear car (Follow-up) Are alternated and run one by one, and the criteria for judging are how well the leading car is able to complete a single run and how much the trailing car can keep up with the leading car. The two runs are scored with DOSS, and the referee's addition and subtraction points are added to the final score, and the one with the higher score wins.The player who wins to the end will be the overall victory in the round.[23].

    If the victory or defeat is not decidedsudden deathIt entered an extra time called, and until 2010 it was held many times until it was settled, but now, considering the holding time of the event etc., unlimited sudden death is limited to the final, and in the best 16 sudden death None (however, if both the sum of the two scores and the score up to the second decimal place of the previous DOSS score are tied, a sudden death will be performed), and the best 2 is limited to once.If it is not settled, check the score by DOSS and add the points of the judges to the score, and the higher one wins.

    Until 2010, 10 advantages were distributed in the order of 6: 4, 7: 3 to decide the victory or defeat.This format is based on the cartoon "Initial DIs based on the "preceding and following battle method" that appears in[24]..Since 2011, when Keiichi Tsuchiya left, 10 points will be the highest and each will be scored, and the player who leads 2 point or more in total after running two runs will win.

    From 2014 to 2018, it was decided by the judges' addition and subtraction points based on the DOSS score of the preceding car, and the victory or defeat was decided by the rank in 0.5 point increments.The follow-up qualifying will be held by the players who ranked 9th to 24th in the single-run final, and then the follow-up final will be held by the best 8 of the 8 people who passed the follow-up qualifying and the top 16 single-run finals who will be the seeds. It has become. If the total rank after two runs is the same, the one with the higher rank will win by referring to the rank at the time of the preceding, and if it is still the same, the one with the higher DOSS score will win.However, only if the ranks of the two players are the same and the total rank is 2 or higher, only one sudden death will be performed in the form of a special sudden death.In addition, the match with the highest overall rank of the two players through the qualifying final will be the best follow-up award, and will be the target of the annual MVP award decided at the end of the season.

    Since 2012, a "minor chase" has been held by players who did not make it to the final 16 in the single run final, but it is not currently being held.Even if you win in a minor chase, you will not be able to advance to the best 16, but the winner will be given 1 point.

    Judging / scoring

    Human Examination (-2011)

    Until 2011, the judges scored each run on a 100-point scale, which was used to determine the ranking and winners.In addition, in order to judge the deduction factors such as drift return, line taking, pushing, etc. in places that are difficult to see from the judging seat, a deputy judge with a flag indicating the addition and deduction points was placed beside the course.The flags of the deputy judges are the "blue flag" that is waved when there is a deduction factor mentioned above, and the "fantastic flag" that is waved to add points when a wonderful jump out during a single run (usually). There are two (flag).In a single run, the points of examination are the speed of entry into the corner, the angle, the line (commonly referred to as the flight distance, angle, and flight time), and how dangerous (wall, etc.) can be approached. rice field.In the follow-up, the point is whether or not you were able to run more "awesome" than your opponent (overtaking, pulling from behind, etc.), and it is more important than the point in a single run.spin,UndersteerIs no point.

    Until 2004, Keiichi Tsuchiya (Chairman of the Judging Committee)Suzuki Manabu(Judge / MC) and Manabu Orido judged the game, and the average score of the three judges decided the game.The deputy judge is a former D3 driver. Since Orito turned into a player from 3, Keiichi Tsuchiya and Manabu Suzuki conducted the examination.Since 1, Manabu Suzuki has been published in the official book that he has not been involved in the single-run examination.What he does is rank when the score and approach speed of the 2005st to 2rd single run are all the same, and 2005rd-1th, 3th-3th, 4th-5th respectively in the follow-up tournament. There are two places to determine the ranking.However, the former has never been applied.

    From 2009, the judges will be Keiichi Tsuchiya, Daijiro Inada, Hisashi Kamimoto,Shinichi Yamaji4 people[Note 18], Single run is now done by the average score of each judge, and follow-up is done by total[Note 19]..Then, in the follow-up examination, if the difference is 0.5 or less as a result of adding up, it will be a sudden death.

    Because Tsuchiya left D2010 only in 12011The examination system has changed significantly since then.Basically, the judgment score will be the average of the scores of three of the five referees, excluding the scores of the two who gave the highest and lowest scores.As for the judges, Kamimoto was promoted to chief, and the remaining four were Yamaji.Akira Iida-Eiji YamadaTo three professional drivers, the magazine "Drift heaven』Become a system called Ryusuke Kawasaki, editor-in-chief[25].

    When Tsuchiya was the chairman of the judging committee, the judging criteria for both single run and follow-up changed year by year as follows.

    • 2001-Emphasis on speed for both single run and follow-up.
    • 2002 --- Single run is an angle, and follow-up is close even if the angle is loose.
    • 2003 --The angle is not too sweet for single run and the angle for follow-up.
    • 2004-Single run is to angle and emit white smoke without killing speed.Of course, the pursuit should close the distance, but the angle should not be defeated.
    • 2005-2007-Single run is an angle and white smoke run without removing the line.Follow up with a proper line and close the distance at the same angle.
    • 2008-In single run, speed is excluded from the examination, and emphasis is placed on line, angle, and white smoke.Follow-up is based on the target from 2005.
    • 2009-2010 In addition to the follow-up so far, "simultaneous swing" will be added to the examination target

    DOSS (2012-)

    In single run from 2012DOSS A mechanical scoring system mounted on the vehicle, called the (D1 Original Scoring System), was introduced.this isGPSThe angular velocity sensor is used to quantify the movement of the vehicle and automatically score it. It has been under development for three years since 2009, and was introduced on a trial basis in 3 without any major problems. Therefore, we decided to launch it in earnest.About this system Manabu Suzuki said, "karaokeIt ’s as fun as scoring. ”[26].. Since 2013, the single run has been judged only by DOSS scoring, and the judges will add points and deduct points as an aid to the part that DOSS cannot judge.For this reason, unlike in the past, the DOSS score and the judges' points may give a score of over 100 points.

    From 2014, DOSS was attached only to the preceding car even in the follow-up, and the victory or defeat was decided by the score based on the preceding DOSS score. From 2019, DOSS will be attached to the following vehicles, and the examination and scoring will be done based on the DOSS scores of both cars, and the scores of the two DOSS will directly divide the victory or defeat.

    In single run, the competition section is divided into 4 to 5 sectors, and 10 to 30% is allocated to each sector according to the importance of each.The sum of the DOSS scores of all sectors is the final score.In addition, from 2019, several "zones" will be added on the course, and points will be deducted due to non-passage of the zone.In addition, points will be deducted for running off the course, swinging twice at the time of swinging, and understeer during drifting.

    In the follow-up, it is required that the vehicle speed, angle, and stability are maintained in the lead as in the single run, and how close the follow-up can be while matching the lead.Points will be added when approaching during follow-up[27]However, if the drift becomes too small or the angle becomes too shallow to aim for points, the low points of DOSS will cancel the points added at the approach points.Therefore, the challenge for the followers is how to get close points without dropping the DOSS score.

    In rare cases, an error may occur in the DOSS system, making accurate measurement and scoring impossible.In that case, a human examination will be conducted by the judges.[28].

    Acts subject to addition or deductionAddition / subtraction points
    Zone non-passage-1 to -3 depending on the zone
    Driving off course-2 to -5, no deduction for up to 2 wheels in case of follow-up
    Understeer, swing twice-5
    Crash, stop in competition section, flying, etc.-5 to -10
