The team for this years Narita Dog Fight Winter meet gathered at Car Shop Seki. Continue reading
It was the day before Narita Dog Fight had to leave and yet we still had his nights filled to the brim with car excitement. The recent debut of K6 rolling shots Facebook page has made these events a quite popular. There were so many cars that driving from Umihotaru PA to the exit onto the Wangan at 50kmph was barely enough time to get in every car for a few photos. The guy who runs these events was recently forced into buying a new car and for the sake of continuing these long nights in the cold with all his buddies he chose from a selection of cars that had a rear window which could be opened while driving so he could shoot photos. I think that’s pretty cool! Continue reading
Minami Chiba over the New Years holidays. I ended up walking there from the station so it took an extra two hours longer than I originally planned but you got to do what you got to do. I arrived a bit late but we had a good time and Noogz definitely experience some “Minami Chiba Soul”. I plan on writing a bit more but right now I’m going to leave the photos up and finish writing what I want to say before I update it. Happy 2014 everyone. Hope its another good year!
A lot happened before I arrived at Minami Chiba. I was just a bit too late so I only was able to get the last bits and pieces of the crash. They managed to get it running and he headed out once more onto the track before leaving early for work. Sure is commendable, coming for only half a day and leaving for work!
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. Continue reading
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.
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。 Continue reading
Fun from back on the one of the last days of 2012. Hope you enjoy the short clip. Wish I had more footage to play with but I think this captures how much of an awesome day it was!
