In this post I’d like to both thank, and welcome Taka to the NDF Blog team. Taka runs the JDM Clips channel, and is now a contributor to Narita Dog Fight. He sent these pictures of the Beams Tokachi 24-hour endurance race car from the Twin Ring Motegi Honda collection hall. In 2003, when Honda became the sole engine provider for the INDY series, Motegi was added to the IRL schedule, and is famous in Japan for being the only oval ring circuit. When there are no events going on though, the Honda Collection Hall is the place to go. Many old and current race cars are displayed for the public to view; this Integra being one of them.
The panels that run along the base of the displays have some info about the car, it’s drivers, and the events that it took place in. Looks like this car was a winner!
I like the custom-fitted lights in the Mugen front bumper. These cars compete in pitch black so good lighting is necessary.
A rear shot that shows how the cars are displayed. Thanks Taka!
