Event: Hot Version Live Shooting at Tsukuba v.2

.

Continuing on with the coverage of Hot Version’s filming at Tsukuba Circuit, we’ll take a look at more of what the garages held, and also get a preview of some of the on-track action.  For video of the event, be sure to check out the JDM Clips channel.  So far we’ve seen a ton of RX-7’s, the majority of which were competing in Advan’s Amateur Tournament.  However, the main attraction over the weekend was without a doubt Hot Version’s N2 Race.  AE86 tuners from all over the country travel to compete in this annual event.  Check this one out getting a little sideways on track.  Click past the break to see more!

Close-Up: Tec-Art’s AE86 N2 Project

.

If you’re a fan of the Toyota AE86, then I’m sure that you will be extremely familiar with Tec-Art’s and what they do.  The fairly small, family run operation out of Yashio City, has grown into one of the more famous 86 tuners in Japan.  By far their most famous build is their AE86 N2 Project; seen here in it’s 2012 configuration.  The project, now over a decade in it’s life, has evolved greatly, I think even greater than Yoshinori Kamata had intended.  It’s no stranger to the track, and it definitely made it’s mark at Tsukuba Circuit last weekend during the live Hot Version shoot.  Click past the break to see this machine in detail.
