Today, i drove in the Sky Garage/ Himawari Racing `soukoukai` basically `track day` in English at Mobara circuit. I was running grip class with my S15. Pretty happy considering it was my first time on a race track in Japan and my first event outside of autocross back in the states.
This Levin was killing it all day, really good driving and the car was ultra clean... for some reason i really like how you can see the reflection of the rest of the track in the side of the car. It`s small stuff like this that just makes me enjoy taking pics.

You never know what is gonna show up at the circuit, it`s one of the reasons i love Japan. I was walking towards the paddock at the Sessions meet to watch some of the unrelated grip racing that was happening on track when the Yves Piaget pulled in. The owner also had was also taking in some of the action on the circuit.

Here are some of the cars waiting to go out on track. One thing to note is that only a handful of cars were on air (none in this picture). The Japanese VIP guys really take pride in running on full coils. Some of the cars were so low that they could not get out of the 2 inch high driveway without going side ways and guys pushing down on the trunk so that the rear tires could get traction.

Just got back from Fuji, what an awesome day it was. First, i got to see about 500 of the best VIP cars from across Japan gathered in one spot. Second, a bunch of those cars went out on track slammed and oni-cambered as hell hitting speeds of probably 100+mph down the Fuji straight. Third, was a grip track session with a very bad ass NSX and others. Fourth, the RWB Yves Piaget 993 showed up and i got some killer shots with Mt. Fuji in the background. Yup sometimes things just come together.
Here is a shot of a dumped Crown running through the paddock after doing some laps on track
