THEY SEE ME ROLLIN’: Noriyaro vs Highway Patrol

By in 07-03-2011 12:01 am

Whoops. Unlike these guys though, I stopped.

I didn’t know that unmarked highway patrol units actually have patrol lights that pop out of a little hatch on the roof, just like in Seibu Keisatsu! One of the officers was actually quite keen on Holdens and watched Top Gear too, but he said it was annoying that they’ve only subtitled it up to season 5 on TV here.

SITTING DOWN OUTSIDE THE CAR IN THE PITS DURING A COMPETITION: In black and white

By in 16-02-2011 4:22 am

Aussie photographer Casey Dhnaram has been getting the classy b&w thing going on at shirtstuckedin.com recently, and is slowly trickling out a series of pics from his last trip to Japan.

Click here for a direct link to this particular post, which includes a photo of me doing nothing apart from trying not to fall asleep. Come to think of it, Casey’s isn’t the only blog that I’ve appeared in doing nothing while sitting in the pits next to the car during a competition.

この写真は、オーストラリアのケイシーと言う人のブログからです。「シャツはタックイン」日本車の写真ブログ。名前の意味がよくわからないけど。いまどき人気のファッションかな?でも、「タックイン」って、FF車のアクセルオフじゃないですか?

Tokyo sure does look cool sometimes. I’ll need to go back again with my proper camera and a tripod.

東京の景色は素敵ですね。でも、この写真撮るのあと十秒、パトロールのハイエース乗っているお兄さんが私を追い出した!

お邪魔しました~!

PICKING OUT PICS: Mobara MSC official photos

By in 20-11-2010 3:33 am

You can always count on the MSC guys to get some great pics of all the cars that attend their events. The report from the last round at Mobara Circuit went up yesterday, and here’s the official shot of my Mark II.

Here’s the shot of Nishi Tokorozawa Racing, the triple team I entered in with Shino and her boyfriend Yoshio in the Silvia. You can see the team stickers on the bottom-right of the windscreens.

Shino was driving her practice R32 Skyline, as it would have been a bit tricky to match an AE86 in with large turbo cars. AE86 fans needn’t worry though, as Shino hasn’t given up on them just yet. As I literally type this, she’s doing an expressway run down to Osaka to run in her new Expert OZ engine rebuild.

If you’re interested in seeing more, here’s the link to the Mobara round report on the MSC site.
