As the comments on yesterday’s post made obvious, a lot of you got the Laughing Man references. The thing about itasha is that they can sometimes reveal someone’s hidden power level.
Take this Silvia for example. I had no idea the owner of it was a mechanic I know named Tetsuya.
I’d always seen him wearing Thrasher caps with upturned brims, skater shorts and punk band t-shirts. It turns out he’s an over 9000 otaku!

Itasha! They’re not just for parking and looking at! Earlier this week, I visited an itasha-only trackday at Honjo Circuit and found my friend Ukki-san, who just loves drifting his hyakuche itasha.
Confused already? I’ve added in a few Wikipedia links to try and make some things clearer, but if something goes over your head, it’s probably better just to let it go. (￣ー￣)ﾆﾔﾘｯ

Yesterday, I had the choice of either going to an MSC event at Honjo, or Otoko No Yonmai at Nikko Circuit.
Guess where I went.

It seems a lot of you remember when I posted this preview a while ago of the “Hachido Rokubu Kanari Juushou” event on the 6th of August last year. Well, the best photos ended up being published in Drift Tengoku, and I ended up completely forgetting about the rest!
The “Hachido Rokubu Kanari Juushou” name of the event literally translated means “8.6° Severe Illness”, but the meaning is more along the lines of “I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is some more AE86!”
So for today, let’s look at the pits. Tomorrow, action from the track. The day after, Hachiroku weirdness and cool stuff.

I just remembered I have about 70 photos of last year’s AE86 meeting at Fuji Speedway that didn’t end up in Doriten.
Something to look forward to then. Just let me edit them up a bit.

Back the next day for some more action at Spring Drift Matsuri 2006! The place with all the craziest action is usually Minami.
