KING OF VEE: Mitsumori-san at the 2010 V1GPDecember 20, 2010 9:21 pm
Congratulations to Spirant’s Mitsumori-san for winning the 2010 V1GP!
The V1GP is a Toyota-only event, run by Ito Auto’s Manki Ito. The “V” stands for “Tourer V”, but that’s not going to stop anyone in a car that was originally lower-spec from competing as long as their skills are up to it. I’ll have more pics from this event up a bit later. Even though he’s been doing pretty well behind the wheel recently, Mitsumori-san has put the Chaser up for sale as he already has plans for a new JZA80 Supra drifter. I guess he likes a challenge!
Since the internet can do videos as well as photos, here’s Mitsumori-san’s full-course run in the finals. I bought a little HD video camera back when I climbed Mt Fuji and I’ve been using it here and there since then. Sorry for the hand-held shakiness and blurriness! Noriyaro has been a photography site up until now, but a little bit of extra audiovisual content can’t hurt now, can it? After this particular event, I sat down and worked out a better way to shoot video smoothly and as take photos at the same time. Wait and see.Chaser, JZX100, Manabu Mitsumori, Nikko Circuit, Team Spirant

excellent! can’t wait for the other pictures
It’s these things we’ll look back at in 5-10 years and then we’ll all be grateful that someone caught it on tape.
Good stuff Alexi!
damn he fliped that fat bitch like is was a hachiroku
more video is always win. it adds a whole other dimension to the experience! It’s one thing to see stills of an event, but when i watch footage (especially raw), the immersion is so much deeper, since it brings motion as well as sound. 🙂
sad news about Mitsumori-san selling the Chaser, man i love that car. it’s been my hero for the past two or three years, one day i’ll have one lol.. JZX100s are legal in Canada now, i think?
Andy from powervehicles siad that the price is not too high. It`s about 1 150 000 yen
For the video and photo thing contemporarily, would you not hear the shutter click as you shoot?
That is one H.O.T car and I like the paint job on it.
You can, but the ambient exhaust noise is so loud you barely notice it.
Alexi, I miss you very much. I had fun the sort time we hung out.
Also, I’m not sure I like the new changes to Nikko, they ruined my standing spot. Is it more fun to drive now?
