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!

Sad that you’re leaving Japan, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Question though, as far as I know, you had te 240 imported into Japan. Cannot you take it with you wherever you’re going? Hawaii right?

Also, do they have any kind of tracks or anything over there?

No it was imported by a previous owner. I could ship it but it might be more trouble than it is worth. And there isnt much track driving in hawaii, if any.
