The battle between Takumi Fujiwara and Ryosuke Takahashi is the tenth battle of Initial D as well as the final battle of Initial D: First Stage and the New Initial D Movie trilogy.

Prior to the Battle[edit | edit source]

Ryosuke decides to underpower his FC to even the odds with Takumi's techniques. As the upcoming battle came, a lot of spectators and teams who took on Takumi such as Impact Blue and the Myogi NightKids watch the race. At the starting line, Keisuke did the countdown and both cars take off.

During the Battle[edit | edit source]

Takumi leads at first. At the first corner, both cars drift side by side shocking the spectators. As the race progresses, Takumi's feeling the pressure when Ryosuke tailgates him recognising why he's the best driver in Gunma. As the pressure drags on, he overspeeds the corner causing his drift to be botched allowing Ryosuke to overtake Takumi with the cost of his front tyres to wear down. Unwilling to give up, Takumi results to using the gutter run at the five hairpins to get closer to Ryosuke. As the last corner approaches, Takumi takes Ryosuke on the outside. As both cars drift, the Eight-Six drift inside and outside and Ryosuke with worn front tyres sliding outwards enabling Takumi to pass him. Takumi becomes the new legend defeating the once legend Ryosuke Takahashi with a new course record.

After the Battle[edit | edit source]

Takumi asked if Ryosuke slowed down for him in the last corner. Ryosuke denied that believing he moved up a notch and his tyres were acting strange. But he didn't use the tyre wear as an excuse and humbly admits he lost fair and square. Takumi humbly admits he doesn't believe himself to be faster than anyone else. Ryosuke told him there is a much bigger world whether he believes in his talent or not. Ryosuke calls him weird and admits he is the fastest he came up against. He then drives off gracious in defeat.
