This past weekend was the HKS Premium Day at Fuji Speedway.
This has become one of the premier events over the past couple years, and includes top Japanese drivers and tuning companies.
In my opinion, this event was far better than the Tokyo Auto Salon and Nismo Festival. HKS has really worked hard to make this a memorable event for the fans. Also, compared to the complete lack of R35 GT-Rs at the Nismo Festival, the HKS Premium Day features highly-tuned R35s from various shops.

This day consisted of 3 events, run one in the morning and once in the afternoon.
1) Hiper Challenge - HKS fans and customer racing
2) Option FSW Super Lap - racing between various tuning shops such as ATTKD, Pan Speed, Yashio Factory, Auto Select, HKS, HKS Kansai, Top Fuel, Esprit, etc.
3) R35 GT-R Battle - a battle of GT-Rs between Esprit, MCR, Garage Yawata, Garage Defend, Screen, Sunline Racing and HKS.

The R35 GT-R battle was finished with a full-out race between the shops, featuring celebrity drivers such as Orido-san, Nobu Taniguchi-san, "Tarzan" Yamada-san and two others. After an HKS/Taniguchi dominated race, Yamada-san took 1st place in the Esprit, 2nd place was Sunline Racing, 3rd was Garage Yawata.

A special thanks to Auto Select and MCR for hosting us in their paddocks and hanging out with us.

Here are some pictures of the day, I hope you enjoy them!

"Tarzan" Yamada being interviewed by HKS TV after his win. His comment was too bad HKS lost the race in their event, but what can you expect from not choosing the best driver (himself of course). Always a comedian....
