On the way to Tomei, we crossed paths with another Up Garage. The day before, we visited the main shop which is located just out of Tokyo. This was a much smaller shop, but this was the ‘drift’ store. Sitting outside where half a dozen ae86’s which looked like they’ve been sitting there since the 80’s and 90’s, gotta love the Advan Tri-Spokes. I will edit up some more photos from both outside and inside to show you some of the wicked wheels they had for sale!
As Nigel and I arrived at Nikko Circuit for the second time within 48 hours, we were greeted by an un-countable number of gorgeous s-chassis smashing around the track. Along with the SB Corporation S15 this aggressive, candy, apple red zenki S14 caught my eye as it dropped 3-wheeled entries into the first corner at Nikko. The car looked extremely mean as it clicked 3rd gear to link the back section. If only I could explain how this SR sounded against the giant cliff-face at the back of the circuit, so raspy and so responsive.
In the sun, the candy red paint sparkled a pretty orange colour. This is really what I was planning on seeing in Japan, I am really glad Nigel and I took the time to drive 170km/s south from Nihonmatsu to Utsunomiya. It was quite a shock seeing the circuit whilst travelling along the highway.
Right before the car reached the tighter section, the car was well on full boost, as you can see.
