GETTING HIS MOTORFIX: Midnight Mechanics at YZ Circuit

By in 07-07-2011 1:15 am

A couple of weeks ago, I met up with Grant from Queensland’s Midnight Mechanics and his girlfriend here in Tokyo. About a day later though, he was down in Gifu, visiting a MotorFix track day at YZ Circuit East!

Some of you may be familiar with Grant’s red AE71,  so you can probably understand why he made the trip down there to see their new 1uZ-powered Corolla and go for a few rides in it.

Luckily, Grant is pretty handy with a camera too, so click here to read the article on the Midnight Mechanics site.


HACHIROKU DAY 2010: Hachido Rokubu Kanari Juushou at Fuji Speedway, Part I

It seems a lot of you remember when I posted this preview a while ago of the “Hachido Rokubu Kanari Juushou” event on the 6th of August last year. Well, the best photos ended up being published in Drift Tengoku, and I ended up completely forgetting about the rest!

The “Hachido Rokubu Kanari Juushou” name of the event literally translated means “8.6° Severe Illness”, but the meaning is more along the lines of “I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription is some more AE86!”

So for today, let’s look at the pits. Tomorrow, action from the track. The day after, Hachiroku weirdness and cool stuff.
