2 more weeks to go until Special Run in Tsukuba 2006. Here are the details.
AE86 N2 Battle can not be missed. Some of you may have seen the earlier post of the Tsuchiya AE86 shakedown, but the car is in great shape! Last year KT had to retire due to machanical troubles but this year he is back for revenge. The rivals in this race are all experienced 86 drivers to even the Drift King can't win without a fight.
Next is the 350Z one make race, "Fairlady Z Hot Version Cup". Z tuners from Japan including the Nismo Fairlady Z RS concept will come together to decide once and for all which Z rules. BM and HV casters will all drive top name tuner Zs and battle for pride and honor.
Drift performances will be brought to you buy Japan's very best, Kazama Yasuyuki, Shigenobu Kumakubo, Yoichi Imamura and Kazuhiro Tanaka from Team Orange. All four are top D1 drivers and they will show all of their best tricks and even some hidden moves we usually cannot witness at D1 competitions.
To finish the event will be the final run by Hattori Naoki who just retired from Formula Nippon. He holds the Tsukuba course record in the Formula class which he will try to shatter for this last run.
Also talk shows by our usual cast members will take place. Booths from Japanese tuners will also be in the paddock area.
