Beautiful Japanese race queen goes from trackside to driver’s seat as she becomes pro drifter

Awano Kisaragi looking to crowdfund 2019 drift campaign and overseas race entries.

When Awano Kisaragi was a little girl, her dad worked for an airline, which helped instill a love of vehicles in the Osaka native. As she got older, though, Kisaragi’s vehicular affection shifted to cars, and after she graduated from high school, she became a race queen, as Japan calls models who work in the motorsports and automotive accessories promotion industries.

Kisaragi still works as a spokesmodel, but that doesn’t mean that whenever you spot her at the track she’s there at the behest of some corporate sponsor. Yes, in the shot below she is posing next to a competition-spec drift car and holding up a placard with the driver’s name on it, but that driver’s name is Awano Kisaragi.
