japan GT?

The first/last time i went to the Japan GT was in 2008.. i took part in the Japan GT cars lookalike contest.. i still wonder how the hell my car was in the finalist category.. haha..

Anyway, this year i went again for the tan! haha... well, actually my friend's were going.. hence i joined in the fun.. it was super hot that day and i got my tan back!

I went with the subaru group this time.. they had a convoy of like 30 cars together with the Evo cars and there was police escort! it was awesome! ok ok, it wasn't my 1st time being escorted by the police.. but still....

This is me when i arrived

And this is me after standing under the hot blazing queuing up for food and after the race.. rosy cheeks :D

Ok, time for cars photos

This is the toyota race

While the toyota cars were racing, the GT cars were in their respective garage doing some final tuning

Before the race starts, as usual there'll be a parade of the girls

Cars took their position

When all the cars started their engine, it was loud and deafening BUT it was music to my ears :P

The winner for the GT 500 which is no more than 500bhp was No. 1 Weider HSV-010 (Takashi Kogure/Loic Duval)

And the winner of the GT 300 which is no more than 300bhp was No. 4 HATSUNEMIKU GOODSMILE BMW (Nobuteru Taniguchi/Taku Bamba)

I think i might go again next year.. but only if i'm not going alone :P
