53.589

I’m not usually a grip fan, but I can’t help but be blown away by the HKS CT230R. It holds the current lap record at Tsukuba, a blistering 53.589 seconds. The driver is the one and only NOB Taniguchi. Total legend. His style is so fast and smooth the car never even looks fast from the outside.

Check out a vid of the lap HERE

I found a really good article on Turbo Magazine

Drifting is Dead.

Ok, so it’s not really, but if TAS 08 is anything to go by the tuning scene is clearly shifting it’s focus. There seems to be a real move towards VIP and European models which works for me. There have been a lot of reports on the web and blogs documenting the show so I’m not going down that road. Just thought I would throw up some pics of my favourite car of the show.

That car takes me back to the summer when I actually got to sit in a genuine GTR. This car is owned by Alan Thomas and is the only one in Europe. Good times.

Here is my KP30 (and me) parked up with it. I know I’m dangerously un-cool, but how often do you get to be this close to your dream car.
