Event: NDF x CPK6 x Maruyama Summer Civic Meet

Action, Automotive, Event, Japan, JDM




A month or so ago Maruyama-san had got together with Sekinei and organized a Civic meet at Daikoku PA that was to be held last weekend.  The original idea came about because of Maruyama-san’s participation at the ‘Glow De Fever’ meet that Hara-san organized for the Attack guys.  It was nothing big, but he wanted to get some friends together to take some photos, and since Sekinei would be there, they’d have an opportunity to get some shots on the C1 and K6.  Kuni, Saito and a couple other Kanto region guys came out, as well as my personal idol Toshihiko-san with his turbo EK, and a few other friends.  Seemed like they all had a good time blasting through the C1!  Check out more below.



きっかけは、”Glow De fever” の 際に丸山さんから、今度、Civicのmeeting があるので、来てください! と誘われたのが始まりで、丸山さんからお誘いを受けて、大黒PAに集合しました。


Kanjoと言えば、大阪環状 C1と言えば首都高環状線。 どちらも長い歴史があり、 私 Sekineiは幸いにも全盛期を知っている世代に育った。 どちらかと言えば、走り屋でも、関東では大きく分けて、 「ゼロヨン」 「首都高(C1)」 「湾岸最高速」 「 ドリフト(湾岸と峠と住み分けがされていた様な。。)」 「峠グリップ」こんな感じでカテゴリー分けされていたと思う。だけど、大阪は細かいカテゴリー分けされていたのか、よくわからない。 だけど、大阪=環状 と言った様な感じで、一番に浮かんでくる。 大阪環状を走ると分かるが、ものすごくオービスが多い気がする。 仕事で何回か走ったのですが、そんな所に環状族の息吹を感じていた。


今回、丸山さんのお誘いでそんな「息吹」を感じる事が出来た。 大黒PAに到着すると、Civicだらけ!! 環状スタイル、スタンス、痛車など、様々なスタイルのCivicが! だけど、残念ながら騒音のせいで、大黒閉鎖でみな散り散りに。。。。 ですが、皆で海ほたるに場所を移動してイベントの継続。


その道中でローリングショットをする事にしました。参加ありがとうございました。 その中でも、参加して頂いてとても光栄だったのが、 「花売り太郎 氏」 のPurple のAE86 首都高C1Loop の生き字引。 雑誌 CAR BOYの読者なら皆さん存じてる筈です。 また、環状スタイルの様々なCivicが列をなしていてとても壮観でした。 海ほたるに到着して、丸山さんと、花売り氏で色々とお話させて頂きました。


ありがとうございます。また機会がありましたら、是非誘って下さい。 またやりましょう!!






Another shot of Toshi’s EK; which I’ve personally been referring to for a few years as ‘The EK’.







Familiar Daikoku scene.






Of course, all Hondas were welcome.  The DB8 looked very nice.






Gotomo-kun and his SiR – one of the few kanjo guys that came out from the Kanto area.








Was really into this EK on SSR Longchamp XR-4Z’s – awesome look, heavy wheel though.  The full C-West aero is of course, standard.











Couple more shots of Toshi’s EK and his engine bay.






EK9 on TE37’s and a good amount of random aero.






Maruyama and friends.






Kuni-san’s EK.








Saito-san’s EF







After an hour or so of chatting and relaxing, everyone was a bit ancy to go driving, so with the Highway Star at the lead they took off out of Daikoku…






…bound for the Aqualine.





Maruyama-san’s Zero Fighter EK looking right at home amongst industrial backdrop of Yokohama.





Really cool EK with a pretty unique vented hood and really cool aero…







Hiroaki-san and his Idemitsu Kosan livery EG.








Toshi and his wife cruising through.






Getting closer to Umihotaru as they enter the Aqaualine with Kuni in the front.










With Gotomo following behind – and behind him is the mysterious Florist Taro 86 ~ Ryouiti-san!  Always C1 running, a legend that has more history than most know.














Reaching the destination of Umihotaru.







Stopping for a brief moment for a coffee or something cool and caffeinated I’m sure, before heading home, as it was already well past 1 am.







Seeing this parked nearby is almost akin to seeing a Great White Shark swimming amongst a school of flounders or something.  Almost as if it was asking if they were lost…this is the C1 remember? hahaha
