Don’t know if the new 86 could ever make me as happy as these things do…
I will let the pictures do the talking:
As some of you may have heard, I have decided to leave my current teaching position and in turn will also be leaving Japan. Amid all the craziness that is trying to tie up loose ends here, my friends threw a private event at Meihan’s E-course a few weeks back as a final send off. We had the entire track to ourselves and at only 20 or so cars, we had plenty of seat time. As always I was able to capture a bit of video:
As you can see, it is much like the more famous C-course on straight but overall a bit slower on the entry. I had A LOT of drive time this day and it was a great final send off for the car. No issues and no problems despite me driving it fairly hard at least a few times a month. Sad to see it go but sometimes you just have to move on right? It will be hard leaving all the great friends I have made via the car life here. That being said, I will be back to Japan now and then and you can bet I will be driving something, somewhere, somehow when I do visit. This isn’t the end of the blog either, so keep me on your bookmark list and/or reader and check back from time to time!
Most of you are familiar with Meihan’s C-course, but there is also E-course. There is an upcoming track day there with some buddies, hope I can make it:
We had a 3 day weekend here last week so a few of us took advantage and headed to Suzuka Twin. Same ‘ole track, but still had plenty of fun and some good tandem with the 86 again. Car need more grip, and a tad more power…but not much.
