One Shot: Fuji Circuit 360 Modena

Automotive, Japan, JDM, One Shot

One of the funner things to do when the action on track grinds to a halt due to delays in the race, or fluid clean ups, is to walk around the paddock where the owners of the race cars and teams park their daily drivers.  Case in point, this Ferrari 360 that was nonchalantly parked amongst mini-vans and flatbeds at Fuji.

I started running through these Arvou shots at HKS Day this afternoon after work.  Since I’m home this weekend I’m trying to piece together something before the week begins again.  I particularly liked this shot I grabbed in the early morning, where the roadster was still thawing out from it’s frigid ride to Fuji.  Check back for more soon.

Have a good weekend everyone ~

The passageway to Tsukuba’s paddock has seen some things; I can only imagine.

Tokyo Auto Salon has always been hit or miss for me.  I’ve attended for three years starting in 2009, but recently decided to stop going.  For me, my time is better spent fulfilling the niche of covering time attack, rather than a show that consists of about 10% actual motor sport.  There are, however, a few gems that are in attendance year after year.  For 2015, URAS unveiled a a new JZX100 build that is absolutely amazing.  Makes me want to begin my ER34 build even quicker now!

Masahiro-san invited me to stop by Advance the other evening to check out a customer’s NSX that was coming all the way from Shizuoka to get, among other things, a new differential installed.  I’ll begin processing those photos soon, but until then enjoy this crispy white Type-R.
