BIG IN JAPAN: Vaughn Gittin Jr’s Japan trip, now in HD

October 14, 2009 4:19 am Published by

Something interesting popped into my Youtube subscription box the other day. Remember those videos of JR in Japan? They’ve been re-uploaded in HD!

So, here they are, linked for your convenience.

Click here for Part One – JR visits street drifting in Osaka.
At 0:57 seconds, where you can see me driving the van and looking to the left in the rear-view mirror. I was looking at a police car! This being an official Ford video though, they couldn’t show that sort of thing…

Click here for Part Two – JR visits Bihoku and goes drifting with Naoki Nakamura and Mitsuru Haruguchi.
See if you can spot my Skyline in there.

Click here for Part Three – JR and Keiichi Tsuchiya on the set of Hot Version.
This was a fun day too, because I got to drift the track during some down-time, and translate an interesting conversation between JR and Nob Taniguchi.

Click here for Part Four – JR at Ebisu.
This was also fun, mostly because I snuck off to the North Course when nothing was happening and had a good go at it.

Click here for Part Five – D1 drivers try out the Mustang.
More fun at Ebisu.

Click here for Part Six.
A summary of the trip.

Click here for JR visiting a takoyaki stand.
I was slaving away in a hotel room on two hours of sleep trying to get photos uploaded while everyone else went out to Amemura and had fun.

Click here for the Midnight Onigiri bit.
My cameo!

Click here for the Japanese parking bit.
I think this was Gay Andy’s idea to see what happened when the car disappeared into the mysterious expanse of an automated Japanese parking garage.
