This past Saturday, I was invited to a get together for my friend Teramachi to celebrate his recent marriage. Teramachi actually drives this S13 I posted about way back, here. A few weeks ago he got 2nd place in the advanced class at the Meihan round of MSC. His car:
So the night turned into a huuuuge party and we had around 20-25 people, all drinking, talking, having a good time. At one point, I turned to my right and sitting next to me was Mr. Takatori, driver for the SA-Kyoto FD team (and former D1 driver). We talked for a while about FD and such…best of luck to him in Vegas!
It turns out all of these guys are into cars, and drive or used to…in fact I’m told a few of them used to complete with the likes of NOB and Orido back in the day. I guess a few of them are in those old DriftClub vhs tapes (before Doriten) and they often went to BM Hai comps..cool!
I also found a new favorite drink… Tantakatan Shiso Shochu:
After dinner, those who didn’t drink (and me since I wasn’t going to be driving) headed to Sasayama for some touge. We stayed for a good 4 hours, as it was raining people didn’t have to worry about tires (or making too much noise). It was a fun night indeed!
