260KM/H ON A WET PUBLIC ROAD: Early morning at Mt Panorama

By in 02-05-2010 7:53 pm

I was sent an anonymous email just now with a link to this video.

For readers who aren’t familiar with Mt Panorama Circuit in Australia, it’s a street circuit in the city of Bathurst that basically consists of some very long straights up and down a mountain, with a whole lot of turns at the top that leave very little room for error. Here’s some Youtube videos of the circuit.

During non-race periods, it’s a regular street with a 60km/h speed limit that can be accessed by the public, and is regularly patrolled by the police.

Here’s what makes it interesting. This video was obviously shot very early in the morning, and that black R34 Skyline in the video looks and sounds an awful lot like Mark Berry’s car, which will be competing in the World Time Attack Challenge being held at Eastern Creek circuit in a couple of weeks.

So, is it real or a fake viral video? Right at the end, you can see the driver leave the circuit and start driving away along the public street that leads to the circuit. You can also see a car coming the other way on Conrod Straight. All I can say is either someone is either going to have some explaining to do to the Bathurst constabulary, or is very good friends with the Mt Panorama management.

Here’s a video of Mark’s R34 at Eastern Creek. Same car? You decide.

KAWASAKI’S NISSAN: Drift Tengoku’s drift GT-R

By in 15-10-2009 4:38 am

Here’s another car that was parked at Fuji Speedway recently, nicely slammed on some Blitz 03 wheels. It’s the Drift Tengoku project GT-R that belongs to the editor, Ryuusuke Kawasaki.

For those that follow Doriten, the legendary pink and white JZX90 Chaser has finally run out of registration, so they’re moving on to a JZX100 Cresta kouki. I can’t wait to see that!

Kawasaki-san told me that he regularly reads Noriyaro, and reckons the photography is cool. Not bad eh?

これはドリ天の編集長川崎さんのGT-Rです。シ~ブイ!じゃ、ドリ天のJZX100クレスタを早くメイクしてね、川崎さん!

Spotted at Fuji Speedway, this GT-R was is one of a limited run released back in 1996 in honor of the widebody, RB26DETT-powered Nismo cars than ran in Le Mans. Available only in Competition Blue, these Skylines came with factory intakes on the front bar, a carbon rear spoiler and a nice little sticker on the c-pillar, among other things.

SHOW: Skylines at Motorsport Japan 2008

By in 07-10-2008 10:22 pm

While Toyota was firing up their more prestigious Formula cars opposite the Nissan stand, the people’s favourite Skylines easily drew a crowd with the Nissan team’s comprehensive exhibition.


Even though this Hakosuka is worth about as much as a new BMW M6, there were no barriers keeping you from getting right up close. I saw at least a couple of people walk past it and brush the buckles of their backpacks against it though.
