Encounter: ハニカミDC2

Not totally unrelated to, but probably unnecessary to explain, the Japanese word ハニカミ (hanikami) is a kind of cute way to describe ‘shyness’.  There’s an old dating show that ran on TV in Japan during the mid-2000’s called ‘恋するハニカミ!’ (love shy).  Think the 1960’s TV sensation ‘The Dating Game’ meets Japan’s incredibly unique sense of humor.  Now, clearly this has nothing to do with cars, or time attack, but it is the nickname of this Evome contendor, so let me do my best to tie this together.

OK, well, nope. I tried.  I stared at my monitor for 10 minutes and I’ve got nothing.  I can’t connect any relevance between dating shows and time attack.  Check out a few more shots of this DC2 though.  Back in February, the car managed a 1’02.085 around Tsukuba.
