THIRD AND FOURTH: HighSpeedDRIFTClub走行会 at Ebisu East

By in 26-12-2012 5:27 am

A bit over a month ago,  I noticed that Team Orange member and Ebisu Circuit PR manager Naoto Suenaga had invited me on Facebook to an event called “HighSpeedDRIFTClub”  to be held on the definitely very high-speed Higashi Course at Ebisu Circuit.

Since this was probably going to be the last chance to hit Ebisu Circuit in the Skyline missile before it was covered in snow, I headed up with a carload of tyres to enter. Another couple of good reasons to enter was because Higashi Course is usually only open to drifting three times a year during Drift Matsuris, and the entry to this event was only about half what it normally costs for a private track day at ¥6000.

DOWN UNDER ORANGE: WTAC and lack of posts

By in 14-08-2012 12:02 am

Posts have been a bit lacking recently, and since I’ve taken a short trip back to Australia, new posts might get even more sparse until early next month when I get back to Japan.

I’m still doing plenty of car-related stuff though, such as attending last weekend’s World Time Attack Challenge at Eastern Creek Raceway/Sydney Motorsport Park, where I was helping out Team Orange. Here’s a pic of Orange’s Naoto Suenaga admiring a Holden ute. Could he possibly be thinking of building up one of these back home at Ebisu Circuit? Suenaga also managed to take out the drifting competition at the WTAC event, so it would be good to see Team Orange attend next year’s event as well, if possible.

Until posting regularity starts to build up again a bit, why not try going back through some of the Noriyaro archives in the meantime? Click on the “previous month” tab and pick an old one at random.
