Unfortunately the cars that we had previously announced we were using for matsuri, have fell through. Emily from Power Vehicles advised that once they had received the black 180, there were some bad metal on metal noises coming from the engine. The other White Sil80 had more rust than first thought, the LSD was worn and we were recommended against buying the car. It has since been resold today. So what are we going to drive a Ebisu

I have *hopefully* secured another car from the auctions today and we are still waiting for more information on a second car from Andy.

Hello all. It has been another while since my last post. The lack of events and anything interesting has left this blog very bare. I have however been planning another trip to Japan and as motivation for people to save for the trip, I have created this video.

Tribute to Kuroi

We were fortunate enough to see him compete in D1GP at Ebisu last year, battling his team mate Kawabata Masato.
