A SUPER NIGHT WAS HAD BY ALL: Super Night Meeting, June 2009

By in 16-06-2009 11:29 pm

Last weekend, I drove up to Ebisu Circuit to watch the D1 Street Legal round that was held on the Minami Course, the same as is used in D1.

Unfortunately, you won’t be seeing any photos of that here! I decided to spend the day as a regular-old spectator instead, something I’ve never done before at a D1 event.

I have to say, it’s a lot more fun than peering through a camera all day, and lugging around a heavy backpack full of equipment.

What I did take some photos of was the Super Night Meeting held the night before. This is a car show put on by Ebisu Circuit in the Minami pits, that centers around the cruising-type of modified cars, such as this slammed Suzuki Wagon R.

Of course, since it was at Ebisu, there was a just a little bit of drifting as well!

You may be wondering if Naoto Suenaga was able to make it back out on the track after his heavy hit of the tyre barrier during Friday’s practice. Team Orange put in a lot of hard work and actually manageed to get the car into an agreeable state, just as long as you were only looking at it from the grandstands and not any closer. The funniest thing however, was what they did about the missing wing mirror. (more…)


CRASH: Team Orange Fuji D1 Practice

By in 24-10-2008 6:56 pm

Today at Fuji Speedway was, as they say here in Japan, “heavy wet”.

Regardless of the scary conditions, a majority of the drivers made their way out to the track to get in some valuable track time. Unfortunately, some drivers had the conditons get the better of them, like Team Orange’s Naoto Suenaga.

He was not injured, and the Orange crew are still at the track pounding away at the bodywork to get the Impreza somewhat respectable and ready for tomorrow’s practice and qualifying.
