As I sit here writing this on my way to Kansas City, 39,000 feet in the above ground in a tube made of various metals and composites, traveling a good 550mph, I struggle past my exhaustion in an attempt to coherently transcribe my thoughts from this past weekend. It’s interesting how my perspective on our local track events has changed over the past couple of years. Perhaps it’s because I’ve become a little more open minded (perhaps even a collective change in outlook amongst my peers), or have had the good fortune of befriending many of those involved, but I no longer view them the way I did (unnecessarily arrogant so to speak).
I usually like to entertain myself at car shows by scrutinizing each car that I pass by. Obviously, you’ve seen from my past coverage of any car show, that I’m fairly particular in the cars I post. This makes for a less comprehensive view of the event, but I’ve always done my best to keep the site to a specific niche, and not posting just for the sake of posting. That being said, I like to pick a car at each show that I like the best, and give it the imaginary NDF award. At last weekend’s Autocon show, it was this S2000 here which received such a pretentiously made-up honor of the NDF Choice.
I’m back! In town that is. Well, long enough to get the second part of our Autocon LA coverage up. We continue our retina stimulating walk through the Pomona Fairplex with a look at the Pink Ribbon Racing FD3S.
I had the strangest sensation of déjà vu when we pulled into the Pomona Fairplex parking lot this past Saturday morning to attend Autocon. I don’t know if it was a combination of the weather, which mirrored the overcast skies at last April’s event, or the fact that I was with Yuta once again, or even the time of year, but I got it (much like the three cups of coffee I just drank have given me over-caffeinated body shakes right now; not even sure how I’m able to type this without error).
That sensation, though, reminded me of just how much I’ve come to enjoy Autocon over the past 5 years.
Come join Amir and I for a Sunday morning cup of coffee as we compare the US Time Attack culture to that of Japan’s. Get an update on Amir’s current venture in the US competition […]
Hey everyone – we’re back!
Sorry about the down time last night that led into this morning; the result of such down time, however, is the new layout of the site. If I were being completely honest, I’ve never been 100% satisfied with the look of the site (or anything in my life for that matter). As a result, the site has changed it’s look over the past years multiple times.
Mobara invites from Team Yamada. Lots of good street teams out this day.
