Event: Skyline Owner’s Battle – Sodegaura Forest Raceway V.1

This past weekend, the annual Skyline Owner’s Battle event was held at Sodegaura Forest Raceway, Chiba.  The name of the event has always been a little misleading however, because in actuality there are a huge variety of Nissan’s that participate in the event; all in sub-categories alongside another.  Also, other makes are welcome to join in as well.  I think that’s what makes this event so laid back, it’s basically a track day for Nissan enthusiasts.  Sekinei was on hand to grab some coverage of said variety.

 


私 の中の一年に一度の恒例行事、それは袖ヶ浦フォレストレースウェイで、走行会に参加する事、また知り合いや仲間の写真を撮る事が好きで、去年から参加し ています。やはりイベントの楽しみは、「全国から日産スポーツカーが集まって、走行会及びレースをする」と言うのと、Z仲間の秋の大運動会的なイベント で、普段見られない車や人がハッスルするので、色々な一面を見る事が出来る。

勿論スカイライン、R30、R31 R32 R33 R34と、ローレル、シルビア、180SX 等々

また、Z31が居なかったのがちょっと寂しかったかな。

でも、盛り上がりが前年比130%位な感じなので、来年は更に盛り上がる筈です。

とても楽しみです。来年も撮影、走行の二刀流.で頑張ります。

This R33 was pretty impressive with it’s unique aero package.  Notice the turned down muffler?  Quite a few of the entrants did this temporarily as Sodegaura has a decibel limitation…unfortunate.

Masuhara-san and friends joined in for the Fairlady segment of the event with his bright red, highway destroyer Z32.  This portion of the event is organized by our good friend Mizota-san of Revolfe S.A.  so you know there are some high power builds in the mix.

The Z’s of Mizota-san and Sekinei-san relaxing before going out.  Definitely two of my favorite Z32’s in Japan; although there are so many good ones…

This 33 was amongst my favorite of the Skyline’s in attendance.  Really aggressive looking.

The white TE’s against the maroon is a good choice.
