VS x Last weekend Fuji Speedway played host to one of the most anticipated circuit days in Japan; HKS Premium Day. An event where iconic circuit racers go all out to beat the clock. […]
A few years ago, if you were to have asked someone stateside if they knew what Auto Gallery Yokohama was, you’d probably get a blank stare. Or perhaps someone would say that it’s an automotive museum in Yokohama; which, per se, wouldn’t be a bad guess. Bottom line is that no one would know who they were or what they did. Actually, around 3 years ago, even I wouldn’t have known much about them. My first exposure to their now iconic battle-spec R32 was in an Option magazine a few years back. It was a panning shot of the Skyline blazing down the straight of Fuji Speedway. Since then, the just about every part of the car has gone through a massive amount of changes. The bottom line remains the same though; to be the fastest. And in many ways AG-Y has succeeded in doing so. The car constantly breaks records at Fuji and holds respectable times around Tsukuba. For a private company, there is no doubt it holds it’s own in a fight against the big dogs (see what I did there? – NDF!). I recently stopped by Auto Gallery Yokohama’s garage to see for myself the car that I’ve been dreaming about for years and get an up close and personal look at it’s heart.

Have you ever had one of those months that seems to last only a few days? Between work and my unnatural, incessant need to constantly be inside of an airplane, it feels as if I haven’t been home for more than a few hours each week. It shows in the site traffic too; so here to remedy this is the first installment of the GT-R Magazine R’s Meeting 2011 at Fuji Speedway. I gave you a preview of JDM Clips’ coverage when I posted the Encounter with Auto Gallery Yokohama’s R32, but past the break is the first round of event coverage. Enjoy.
This past weekend at Fuji Speedway, GT-R Magazine held ‘R’s Meeting 2011’, a giant gathering of Skyline owners and their cars. This event seems to be extremely similar to the Skyline Festival; which was sponsored by Nissan. Exhibitions and ride-alongs were given throughout the day from the various tuners that attended. One car that I will always be happy to see, and will eventually get to photograph one day, is the Auto Gallery Yokohama R32. This has always been my favorite Skyline build and I’m excited to share some photos with you – compliments of JDM Clips. Click past the break for a few quick snaps.
