D1 Grand Prix 2009: Odaiba Exhibition Round winner

By in 23-05-2009 11:59 am

Congratulations Yoshinori Koguchi, winner of the 2009 D1GP Exhibition Round at Odaiba.

Koguchi’s car looks more like a red banana than a 180SX now, as he had a little t-bone accident with Kawabata, which he luckily came away from with just panel damage and drove through to win.

Second place was Masayoshi Tokita in the Goodyear Zero Crown, who drove the massive Toyota ridiculously well all day, skimming the foam block wall on almost every run with his police lights flashing, becoming the crowd favourite as a result.

On another note, sorry I haven’t been updating with longer posts recently. There’s been a lot of other work to do, and not enough time to go over pics I’ve taken for the site. Everything should be back to normal next week.

Until then, I’ll update the Twitter feed with anything interesting that happens tomorrow at D1!

OLD TIN: Japan Classic Car Association’s New Year Meeting, Part I

By in 26-01-2009 12:30 am

I now have a large bruise in my arse from where I have been repeatedly kicking it for only giving myself ten minutes to cover one of the most awesome static car shows I have seen in Japan so far.

Why wasn’t I there on time to cover the Japan Classic Car Association’s annual New Year Meeting in the Odaiba parking area? As I mentioned yesterday, we had a rather important interview scheduled at the same time with a person of great interest to the worldwide Japanese modified car scene.

Of course, work generally has to come before pleasure, but when pleasure is only ten minutes down the road from where you’re working that day, you’re going to try your damnest to get there in time.
