Jap Show 22-06-08

This weekend I attended Jap Show at Santa Pod raceway. It was the usual kind of deal; Hard parking with show cars to drool over and racers on the strip looking to shave 10ths off for bragging rights.

The weather was dry and sunny but what the pictures don’t show is the gale force winds that were blowing all day! Still, better than rain!

CPL Racing EP civic running a boosted K20.

Got Screamer Pipes?

This FD had blown its diff all over the tarmac and the owners were not wasting any time getting it back out there. Check out that exhaust. No silencers plus Rotary goodness adds up to make one of the best sounds ever!

Laurel Skid car was one of my favourite cars of the day. Inside was red velour with a bucket seat for the driver. Pure class.

The UK does do JDM!

I couldn’t get enough of this RE-Amemiya FD. Wide bodied and packing serious brakes. I can imagine under the hood it’s not short of the power to exploit those rotors either.

HKS S15. This car still rules today.

The famous Jet car did its thing running in the 6’s and blowing eardrums. In fact it actually cracked two of the windows in the observation bridge!

This 1300cc Tarmac spec Micra looked like is would deliver the goods on the Touge as well as the track. Stripped to the max and running what look like S14 brakes. K11’s rule, so much potential.

Super smooth EK was dripping with euro touches like the shaved handles, Brock rims and stretched tyres.

A few more from the Paddock

I always enjoy shows at the Pod and I can highly recommend the pizza!

    Love the pics of my FD, its a Kazama Auto wide body kit, pretty similar to Amemiya though.
    I’m running a T88-34D with large street-port at 500bhp, so the brakes are indeed useful!

    Keep up the nice work on your blog!!
