I promised him I’d put them up, so here’s some pics of Tomonori Akai’s AE86 Trueno hatch.
The event we were heading to was the MSC Challenge at Odaiba, an invitational for the best drivers in MSC events from all over the country. Getting up far to early in the morning, as is usual for attending a drift competition, can be compensated for by riding in the back of a V6 Toyota Alphard. I’m a big fan of these things now, and it towed Tomo’s AE86 with no problem at all.
However, once you arrive, getting out of the van and standing in the freezing cold wind isn’t much fun. At least all I had to do was point a camera and press buttons. Tomo is one of the almost insignificant number of people who actually trailers his car to an event, rather than sticking it on the back of a tilt-tray loader, which is the most common choice in Japan. I think it has something to do with licensing conditions, but I’m not sure. Should find out, I suppose!
More on this car later.Tags: AE86, MSC, Odaiba, Tomonori Akai, Toyota, Trueno
