Encounter: Takigashira’s Widebody GC8D WRC Replica

Despite keeping myself busy with work and travel throughout this Summer, there’s part of me that can’t help but feel like these middle of the year months have just dragged by.  In the website’s perspective, time may as well have stopped altogether.  I suppose if there’s one downside to running a niche website, it’s that for a good portion of the year not much is going on.  Typically I’m able to head out to Japan for a few weeks in between Attack seasons, but this year, much like the last, has been way too busy.

Event: The Rally Cars Of Megaweb Festa

.

OK, so this STi technically isn’t a rally car; it’s actually a race car.  However, I figured with Subaru’s ties to the WRC being so strong, I’d include it in the bunch.  One of the coolest things about the Megaweb Festa was that show-goers could take turns riding shotty in all the rally spec cars – all smiles there I’m sure.  If I had the opportunity I’d probably pretend to be the navigator, but I’d give all the directions in English so the Japanese drivers wouldn’t understand.  They’d probably just get distracted and agitated at me – muhahaha.  Check out some shots below the break.
