The battle between Takumi Fujiwara and Takeshi Nakazato is the fifth battle of Initial D.

Prior to the Battle Edit

After the race starts, Ryosuke and Keisuke Takahashi chase after the AE86 and GT-R to observe up close.

During the Battle Edit

Nakazato leads, with Takumi following close behind. Takumi attempts to pass from the outside several times, irritating Nakazato. As they approach the finish line, Takumi feints to the outside before a corner, tricking Nakazato into thinking that he will try to pass from the outside again. To his bewilderment, Nakazato realises that the AE86 is actually overtaking him from the inside. At this point, the race has taken a heavy toll on the GT-R's tires, and it understeers, causing the rear of the car to swing out and hit the guardrail while Ryosuke skids around him.

After the Battle Edit

Despite the defeat, Nakazato felt satisfied for giving all he had and hope to rematch him someday. Meanwhile, Ryosuke explains to Keisuke how he was able to perform the feinting maneuver. Keisuke believed he had great ABS in the Eight-Six only for Ryosuke to laugh at his statement due to the fact Eight-Sixes have no ABS included. Only the driver's own skills and natural instinct acts as it's own ABS.
