Time to come up with my character's bio.
On the left: Madoka Matsusaka, on the right a car enthusiast and journalist that everyone likes called Gavin Anderson. Taken at Narita Airport in Tokyo on white photo background, because why not.
Madoka Matsusaka (born 3.01.1992 in Osaka) is a japanese woman known mainly from excessive street racing, police conflicts and recently - being cleared of all charges and working peacefully at Airborne Automotive.
Madoka's childhood was filled with fun, peace, caring parents and money to live and cover all her needs. She also had a caring grandpa, retired touge racer who taught her about cars in general and also fighting with katana, because he was once a WW2 soldier. However, hell began when her parents divorced in 2004 and she was forced to live with her father, who couldn't control his problems and eventually went drinking.
Her racing career began as soon as 2008 because she couldn't live with alcoholic father under one roof peacefully. She was finally tired and moved on to her own house finding a delivery job and, since she had no car, she secretly took her father's (who only cared about drinking alcohol) Porsche 993 Carrera and modified papers to make her the owner.
As the days with Porsche and delivering packages went by, she discovered another way of earning money: touge racing. She got interested and started racing with her Porsche for money, but also for fun. In effect, she became one of most respected drivers on local Osaka's touges and could earn even $5000 monthly.
As the days went by, Madoka decided to create her alternative name to not be disguised by police and by fact that she would cover her problems with family: her alter name was Mei Onashikara (Onishikara). Under this name she won nearly every race she raced in and developed some techniques, like superlate braking, starting drifting just by swaying in the seat or 90 degree drifting. However, in late 2013, her Porsche stopped working in a middle of touge. It was sure that it's boxer engine stopped working just after 600.000 kilometers (tachometer stopped at value of 603 231.2 km) and that was sign that she would need another car.
Her bet, after selling the Porsche was Toyota Supra Twin Turbo with engine swap from Airborne Synth GT1's leftover engines tuned by AIRJAP (Airborne Japan) for street use. As the car was stupidly cheap, Madoka bought it without hesitation and did some other mods. Final result was just about 1000 hp mad machine with crazy aerodynamics, insane backfireing that was a real threat for the cops who always thought it's not street legal. However, problems with cops (due to excessive speeding - Supra in this config could reach 350 km/h on highway) and racing career rose to futher successes and problems with law.
This has finally ended when in November 2015 Madoka was racing against important Yakuza member. The race was pretty equal, but in one moments Supra got T-boned and flew from the cliff. Driver was intact, however cops caught her and she went to prison under charges of reckless driving, excessive speeding and being a land danger to everyone.
In June 2016 Airborne Automotive's CEO, who was very interested in her career made a proposal: He'll get out Madoka from prison, however she would need to work for his company for at least 2 years. The deal was made, caution paid and woman was free again. In meanwhile, she also stopped street racing on almost crime level, only occassionally going back to watch events and eventually participating in them if they don't collide in law.
In January 2017 Madoka became marketing manager and specialist for Airborne. She also met Gavin Anderson there and they almost instantly became good friends.
In late May 2017 Madoka's father died and with agreement from her mother she changed her last name to mother's first one: Matsusaka. She also stopped using Mei Onashikara moniker. Shortly after, she went again to Japan due to Automation D events - she changed setup of her previous project on 90s polish tuning scene legend - Airborne Seishi in 2.0 litre SR variant and took it to participate in events on Mt. Haruna, but there was also second reason: Gavin agreed to participate in Auto D for the name of car company Erin, but needs a lot to learn to not kill himself, and Madoka goes as his teacher.
Let's say something about the car, if you haven't felt asleep yet.Airborne Seishi SR with AIRJAP Aero bodykit, placeholder wheels placed for testing and broken driveshaft
The car you see here is Madoka Matsusaka's entry into Automation D - only some information are known about this car, but it's Airborne Seishi SR from beginning of the production (year 1994) with rare AIRJAP Aero bodykit with fixed lights. Rumors also say that nearly everything in engine has got replaced, but it is the same basic unit like seen on stock model. Some racers estimate power about 300 hp. Not sure if this car is turbocharged or N/A.
Madoka, however, herself spoke that the car was tuned for downhill pass and is as balanced as possible, unlike many other propositions from other racers.
