Due to some unforeseen trouble with my own car (i.e. broken driver side knuckle), it took me a little bit longer than expected to get this second part up; sorry ‘y’all. In the last post, I mentioned a little bit about the breakdown of classes and regulations for the Circuit Challenge. So for this one I’ll just let the pictures do the talking. I really like this shot, with the CR in the background. As I was taking a second look through some of the shots, I noticed a few EK chassis that were worth putting up. Check um’ out past the break.
Anything doing is worth doing right – and Mugen does track events right. Open to anybody with a Honda, enter into the Circuit Challenge and you are graced with four 15 minute runs on Tsukuba 1000 circuit, professional instruction on and off track, ride alongs with current professional racing drivers, the opportunity to drive one of three Mugen built machines, and the option of trying out Mugen products during your track time for free. This year there were 86 drivers in attendance, including JDM Clips own Taka. Check out the action below.
. Alright! Taka just sent over a boat load of photos from the 2011 Mugen Circuit Challenge at Tsukuba Circuit. This open track event is full of awesome grass-roots built track machines. Just my style! […]
Ever wonder what it would feel like to fly around Tsukuba, strapped into a Mugen built machine, driven by a former F1 driver and current Super GT driver? If so, the Mugen Circuit Challenge at Tsukuba Circuit is the place you need to go. Taka from JDM Clips sent these images over to help us get as close as we can to the action. He has attended this event multiple times, and really has a feel for what a company like Mugen can achieve. Perfectly matching power output with chassis limitations, Mugen can take performance to an entirely new level. Having a reliable car equipped with parts that work in harmony with the chassis is ideal for maintaining control on track; and Mugen does just that. Most people don’t realize just how much experience Mugen has in building cars and engines. Click past the break for more on-track shots.
