Mako Sato (佐藤 真子 Satō Mako, "Maya") is the driver of the Usui combination, a combination similar to that found in the WRC. Mako is interested in Iketani of the Akina SpeedStars. She originally got close to him in order to race Takumi's Eight-Six in Usui, offering her virginity in exchange. But she and Iketani had true feelings to each other later on. Unfortunately, a misunderstanding kept them apart.
Driving a blue Nissan Sileighty, she is the fastest in Usui.
