Went to Tsukuba today, Best Motoring had the 1st part of the
AM for track use. Was nice to see Tsuchiya beating the hell out
of a Lexus and the new 4 door Skyline. He was even going sideways
a few times :clap: . But what we really went for was the Option Lap
Battle. Well, by the time they went on the track, it was pi$$ing rain.
So, here are a few pics anyways. We left rather early, about 45
minutes after they took to the track, at which they started to load
the cars and pack up the gear, really bummed out.:bawling: .
Quite a few drivers were there: Orido, Tanaguchi, Yamada to name
a few. Here are the few decent pics I took, the rest came out
crap cause of all the rain blowing on the lense. Less than 10 cars
showed up for the event: Nagisa R34, Espirit NSX, S. Autobacs Subaru,
M Speed R34, Meister Chaser, Jun 350Z, Top Fuel S2000, Pan Speed RX8.















Now let me get back to my hot cocoa on this ugly cold wet night

I took one look at the weather and bailed out as they obviously wouldn't be able to make good times today :(
10 cars is about right as this is the proper, mental time attacks with little to no traffic.
Sorry it didn't turn out too good for you this time.

nice pics. i like that fairlaidy. the exhaust isnt nice but it also has something cool about it!

as for the famous drivers there:

how are they acting to the public? i assume it was a testing event and not many people are there? can you have little chats with them orso?

i want to know this because i dont really like it that most famous drivers in europe feel to 'priviliged' to talk to people.

when i lived in holland, i used to live in Jan Lammers (ex F1, le mans etc) house (he went bank rupt so he had to sell it). we remained pretty good contacts, i was invited to a couple of testing days with him! also one day Jos Verstappen (F1) was at one of those days, but i werent even allowed to talk to him, he refused it? i was 13 ffs!

more on Jos Verstappen, with A1 GP this year, at the home GP, thousands of fans bought tickets to see him in action again, but the day before the race he couldnt be bothered to show up as he didnt get the money yet, which he was suppposed to get at the end of this season?!
