MIKAMI AUTO FASHION CAR SHOW in megahira-ski resort, hiroshima x

kansai all stars 2020 all finished.

a little over a month ago the qualifying for nara and mie prefecture took place at meihan sports land. in hopes to qualify within nara to be able to go through and run in this years 2020 kansai all stars event on the 14th august.

basically how it works is people show up in their represented prefecture, drive all day and usually get judged by their leader and or boss. a total of 16 ranked drivers get picked including U25 and ladies to represent that prefecture at all stars. to my surprise this year i managed to qualify first for nara and also got first place from the qualifying day overall between the 2 prefectures.

i have definitely been practicing a lot this year and overall think i’ve only missed 1 maybe 2 meihan c course days. there was a week where i drove meihan C & D 5 times in exactly a week. i’ve been very fortunate with this car as of late with almost minimal dramas besides blowing a diff 2 days before qualifying but simple fixes and general maintenance is never a big drama with the extremely talented and driven friends i have here in japan.

i’ll do my best to give the event a rough breakdown on how it actually it works and runs. at the event itself and all the given numbers of the cars and people who have qualified there are roughly 128 cars who attend the event.
– 5 minute practice sessions within your prefecture
– 1st session of qualifying which runs for 10 minutes (approximately 12-15 cars in each group and a total of 3-4 go through to the next round)
– 2nd session of qualifying pending you made it through the first round which once again goes for 10 minutes and 3-4 cars once again go through to the 3rd and final round of qualifying.
– lastly before the tournament (top 12) is the 3rd and final round of qualifying which is the one i ended up making it to before being knocked out.
– tournament (top 12) which is the battles but tanso (single runs only). this is the part that is usually shown on the kansai all stars videos on youtube released every year.
– prefecture dantai (5 cars together)
– super dantai where anyone is free to go out and take place in the extremely high number of cars running all together sun as the sun sets and the event is finished.


taking place in the prefecture dantai with nara this year we managed to knock most teams out before the final battle against kyoto in which they took first place followed by us. being apart of this exact event within all stars has always been a large dream of mine to be apart of, super close, clean driving all together as a team trying to put on the best show for the judges and spectators as you possibly can. even though we came second it was such an amazing feeling to drive home with a trophy from this event.

the sheer level of driving and talent at all stars is seriously something that everyone needs to see and experience at least once in their life (to those who have witnessed the event will know exactly what i am talking about).

below i have attached a bunch of photos a few hours before the event, morning of and some amazing shots by the infamous Kazuhiko Okazaki-san which i am forever grateful for.

i want to say a very large thankyou to koyorad, stance usa, n-style, PS TAKA, stacked, pro shop DIVERSION and everyone involved in this event. given this years circumstances with the pandemic the event still took place with no spectators. based on this decision there was live videos running from the day which you can go back at still watch via youtube.

a new, small youtube video. my HKS 3037 car getting setting at PRO SHOP DIVERSION down in Hyogo prefecture thanks to ishibe-san who is renowned for his tuning skills over the past 24 years.

this car was tuned right after the engine was rebuilt at the start of the year however in the past few weeks i have changed a few things in regards to fuel pumps and boost controllers. it made similar power to the start of the year but a lot safer on the maps in terms of fuel and cleaner boost levels with no spiking thanks to a BLITZ SBC boost controller.

i will attempt to keep doing small and simple videos as such even for memories sake. if you’re enjoying them please make sure you subscribe. enjoy, casey x

last minute decision to head up to tsukuba circuit with nakamura naoki and takumi to grab a few photos of naoki’s 2020 D1GP S15 in which he was testing since being re-tuned and a few other things ironed out for this years season. managed to make it it up to ibaraki prefecture for the day and back to nara prefecture in just under 24 hours which meant no sleep.

going to do my best to try and attend the majority of rounds of D1GP this year to shoot and document pending the corona virus situation and also my visa. for now enjoy these few selects from yesterday. casey x

MEIHAN C COURSE DRIFT

March 26th, 2020

managed to make it back to MEIHAN C course last sunday for seimi tanaka style drift and mini dori-con. this year is really moving too fast. has been pretty much bang on 4 months since i’ve driven here (just before christmas) so was a really good feeling to get back into the groove. You can check out on motorborne the best luxury suv’s and motor news.

this was the first time driving at this course since the car got rebuilt again and new setting by garage PRO SHOP DIVERSION. with a few small things altered, rebuilt wastegate the car makes roughly 440HP on 1.2 and 476HP on 1.36 and a whole lot more responsive to say the least. managed to place 4th in expert class and ran all day with absolutely no issues what so ever. excited to drive more, and I know that if I need a tow truck I can definitely call Philadelphia Towing at 215-201-4972, to get help with this.
