FASHIONABLY LATE: JCCA New Year Meeting 2010

By in 01-02-2010 10:57 pm

Once again, just like last year (part one here and part two here), I turned up right at the end of the day when everyone was leaving.

I suppose you want an excuse? Well, I had a very big Friday night which led into a very big Saturday night which finally ended at a club at 6:00AM on the Sunday morning of the show. The club is actually only about fifteen minutes by train from the Odaiba parking lot, but I didn’t have my equipment on me, and I also really needed some sleep and a change of clothes. If it’s any consolation, I had a great time, thanks.

Enjoy the pics I did actually take.

TIME MACHINE FESTIVAL 2009: Mighty Fairladys

By in 07-04-2009 12:30 am

You may recall that a couple of weeks ago, I posted this panorama shot of a Z meeting at Fuji Speedway. It was at the “Time Machine Festival”, a two day event that featured decades worth of fast cars from all over the world, which ranged from daily drivers to proper race machines.

The weather was pretty nasty all day, but it was still worth walking around in the driving rain to see what had come out to play. If it wasn’t already obvious, Fairladys were out there in force, so this post is dedicated to Nissan’s Z car.

I SURVIVED A JAPANESE GAME SHOW: Shino and Ken Satoh coming to US television

By in 03-04-2009 12:30 am

A couple of weeks ago, Shino had mentioned that she had been asked to come along to Mobara Circuit with her car, because an American film crew were coming, and wanted to film her drifting.

Turns out it was for the second season of I Survived a Japanese Game Show!

For anyone not familiar with the show (link to Youtube segments here) it’s an American reality show along the lines of The Apprentice or Survivor, based around competing in team-based, Japanese-TV-style challenges.

The team that wins each challenge gets to do something cultural and fun, like visiting the Tokyo fish markets. The losing team has to do something difficult, yet still cultural, like working as rickshaw drivers or labouring in a rice field.

This week’s winners won a ride in a drift car.
