This is the famous street drift corner at Nanko Minami, Osaka. As you can see, it’s generally a lot more empty these days.14 Comments
I’ve been meaning to track this car down and get some better photos of it, but until then, enjoy these photos from the D1 Street Legal round held at Sportsland SUGO, 2006.

The year is almost at an end.
I’ve met a lot of helpful and friendly people over the past three months here who have helped make things easy for the new guy, like Shino, Yoshio, Nobu, Hiroshi, Kenji, Tomonori, Ken, Tetsuya and Tetsuya, Kimihiro and Hiromi, Himawari Racing’s Mama-san, Yocchan, Tomohiro, the guy with the Starlet, Kaneda-kun, Wampaku-san, Lascaux-san and the dozens of other people who have helped me so far.
Thank you！ 助けてくれて皆さんありがとうございました！
Of course, thanks to everyone who reads Noriyaro.
Now, enjoy a photo of a bejewled Hummer H2 seen at Daikoku Futo. I can’t for the life of me think of an appropriate caption.5 Comments
I promised him I’d put them up, so here’s some pics of Tomonori Akai’s AE86 Trueno hatch.14 Comments
Tsukuba is probably the most well known of all Japanese circuits among Japanese car fans and therefore has the most often mispronounced name (just say it as in “scuba diving”). Along with places like Fuji Speedway, it’s one of the champagne tracks of Japan, and usually has an entry fee to match.5 Comments
I’ve been trying to find a time to shoot all of the Spirant cars together, but until then, enjoy this pic from last year’s 1JZ Meeting at Fuji Speedway.16 Comments
Took the ‘Line to Fuji Speedway yesterday for an event held by Himawari Racing, which meant taking a photo of the car with the mountain. I remember Tsuyoshi Tezuka showing me a photo on his phone a couple of years ago of his daily driver Toyota Soarer under a cherry tree in full bloom with Fuji in the background. That photo might have to wait for another few months though.6 Comments
The ‘Line and I were back at Nikko again yesterday for another crack at the place that claimed first blood on the car. Everything is more-or-less looking the way it used to, apart from the obvious white front bumper. About six hours earlier though, the poor thing was being pounded on with a very big mallet.7 Comments
