 Despite the bad crash, the Up Garage 86 was out the next day!

Tarzan was brought in as a technical adviser but all I saw him do was watch the races next to me-

 Most people stay for the tsuiso runs and I was no exception.  Everyone likes to see two cars sliding at high speeds next to each other.  However, after two days of sun and seeing poor runs like the following, I called it quits early and enjoyed my drive through the mountains home.

Suzuka Circuit is huge and I wish I had one of these folding bikes in the back of my car for events like this!

Guess the car-

The cars started way down the main straight and came into the main corner with A LOT of speed-

This car is just so photogenic!

I have a soft spot for Altezzas and I wish I had more good photos of this car-

The Up Garage car had a little off road excursion on the second day.  He must have been going over a hundred miles per hour when he went off- 

His time in the runoff gravel screwed up something so his car couldn't move forward OR backward-

The last installment is coming soon!

A while back a friend had emailed me about an anime festival taking place in the heart of otaku central here in Osaka.  I don't care about anime.  I do care about cars though and even though I knew most of them would be plastered with anime characters I thought I would run down to check them out. 

The first car I came across-

This BMW was sporting a really nice purple hue-

Plenty of cosplayers were there showing off their colors as well-

I would love to have an RX-7.  I think most guys would.  But, an RX-7 with this on the front of the car?  No thanks.  That one on the left though.....


A Nissan Primera badge on an EVO?

For some reason this guy brought his gorgeous Supra down.  I was sure glad he did though.  A breath of fresh air-

Off-roaders weren't safe either-

That front splitter is interesting.....

 Which one would you choose?

That is a dude on the right...

Beastly R32-

Tiny itasha

Some kanjo racer wannabees-

Even itasha lovers like to ride with the top down-

This reminded me of America-

Replicars are popular with some people over here and they go to great lengths to make their car look like a popular race car-

It says "Europe."

How can you drive like this?!

I leave you for know with a plain old EVO-

More soon!
