☆A look back on Autumn Chiba Damashi☆2013☆秋千葉魂を省みる☆

img233Once again in the coming weeks the years first Chiba Damashi will be happening at Mobara Circuit so I thought it would be cool to have a look back at the previous year’s autumn Chiba Damashi.  For those of you who don’t know, Chiba Damashi, 千葉魂, which translates to Chiba Soul is a bi-annual event at Mobara Circuit run by the locals from Chiba and is by far one of the biggest attractions of the year.  I hope to see everyone out there again for the 2014 Spring event.   Continue reading

冬前の峠②

After a while the crispy fall air had bitten hard into my bare hands and I jumped into the Laurel for a quick reheat.  Meanwhile some of the newer guys had a veteran show them the course before everyone set out to drift.  Mind you, there were already people drifting.  The screams of burning tires was reverberating through the steep mountains and I could see the flickering of headlights amongst the foliage above us.  It was pretty cool.

冬前の峠①

A friend of many people and local visitor of the touge had set up a small event for a handful of people to attend.  Mainly to gather friends and have a blast before the un-drivable  snow covered roads of winter came.   However, this event also marked his last day or night on the mountains with a specific car.

That car, a big body sedan, a Crown, and with various splashes of personal touches, lately had became quite popular on the internet and in magazines.

☆成田ドッグファイトと一つの週末☆One weekend with Nartia Dog Fight☆

マジかよ!今週末は52週の中で最高だと思う。成田ドッグファイトに届いた週末のイベントへ本当にいっぱい行ってきた!いずれにしても、彼が今回来た理由は、自分自身で特別なイベントを作ってきた事だ。そのイベントはNRT(成田ドッグファイト)冬カフェーと言う。ずいぶん前にこのイベントの予定があって、そして、最初から行くつもりだったんだけど、「どんな感じになるか」とよく考えてた。シャーンさんが来て一緒にいるときはそんなに楽しいと思わなかったから、別のミーティングのことはすごくいいのかよくないかは、別として、関係がなくなってきた。それにしても、海ほたると着くと、車はもう集まり始じめていた。すごいね!NRTの影響が広いと思った。IMG_5400 Continue reading

☆台風ドリフトパート2☆Drifting in a Typhoon 2☆

Part 2 of the exciting small get together with everyone.  As the day progressed the rain stopped and the track dried up pretty fast and everyone lost their fear of the incredible slippery zones and went all out.  A good way to finish the day.  As the post before this, continuing on with just pictures.  Hope you enjoy.

☆台風ドリフトパート1☆Drifting in a Typhoon☆

A few weeks back, in between preparing for final exams and speeches, I slipped out of my room and hopped on a train bound for Chiba.  There was a typhoon rolling in and I was delayed but it didn’t matter.  Here is part 1 of the journey that I ran through trying not to get wet out at Minami Chiba.  This time I didn’t have much to say and felt it better to let the pictures explain.
