Throwback…Sunday…ah who cares it’s been too long

Awesome video series Alexi has been putting up. Can see my weakness at 2:00 mark. The funny thing is, I distinctly remember seeing Alexi standing there film this while coming down the hill!

God, that was possibly my favorite turn at Ebisu….

More shots from E-course

You can check the full album on my Flickr here, and I have included a few of my favorites for you to enjoy here:

Yes, they are welding using jumper cables and a truck battery!

The Last Soukoukai

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!

Non in-car video

Odd seeing the car driving from the outside! This was a really fun day:

Overdue video

I will get to Hiroshima…soon I hope. In the meantime here is some crappy in-car of my trip to run Suzuka Twin in reverse this past November.

Reverse Twin

This past fall I ran Suzuka Twin in reverse with the NZ boys, here is a cool shot thanks to Chris:

Winter in Kameoka

I woke up to this a few days ago. Glad I take the train and didn’t have to deal with the ice covered roads through the mountains.

While waiting for said train, I had this nice view.

Can watch this all day
