    Default Japanese Tuning Show - 01-06-2008 - EDC Round 3 and Time Attack (Pics!)

    Sunday was the best day EVER! Woke up about 7am, got ready, and got in the car and headed for Silverstone. The traffic was brilliant, COMPLETELY clear roads, except for one problem: it was raining . For the whole hour and a half we were driving to Silverstone it was raining, so we thought the day was going to be terrible. I've been to Santa Pod when it's been raining before and a lot of cars weren't drifting, so this really brought down our moods. But luckily, about 15 minutes away from Silverstone, the rain stopped, and the sun popped it's bright yellow head out. By the time we got to Silverstone it was quite warm and very sunny, and when we got in, it seemed the track wasn't that wet at all. So we stood on a hill by the entrance watching some of the EDC competitors go for their practice runs, and we got a fair few pictures:

    Sorry i haven't uploaded many yet but i have over 250 pictures and it takes a while to upload them all. All those pictures are from 10-15 minutes of action. I'll upload more when i have more time tomorrow, and should have a lot more up during the week.

    If anyone wants copies of any pictures, their resolutions are 3456 x 2304, so just ask what resolution you would like and i would be more than happy to e-mail you a copy .

    Tried to upload a few videos too but YouTube was being stupid and slow again so no luck with that. I'd love to get more pictures up too but Photobucket and Imageshack take so goddamn long to upload and they don't let me upload them all at the same time .

    I always drift on that part on Forza2
    Nice pics!

    It doesn't matter how much horsepower your car has, it's about the smile on your face when you drive it.

    Yeah, the GDB(E) was Nobushige Kumakubo's car (anyone who watches D1GP or anything will know) and the GDB(F) was Kazuhiro Tanaka's car. They're both very famous in the D1GP in Japan and the USA, now they are moving on to the EDC . I expect to see them in Formula D or the D1NZ next .

    Lol, yeah, you should definetly pop down to Trax in September. I went into the garage-bits at the side of the track where all the Time Attack cars were, didn't speak to anyone or anything though, but i spent a lot of my time in the area where the EDC cars and crews were and i talked to Bon Bon and Phil Morrison a little and a bit to Kazuhiro Tanaka, even got a picture with him :

    I guess my souvenir was a signed card of his:

    Will have over 40 minutes of video from the JTS on sunday i took on YouTube soon, but YouTube & Windows Movie Maker are both being stupid with my videos at the moment, have to sort it out.
