Japanse Autosport Festival: Traffic jams and parking lot

Japanse Autosport Festival: Traffic jams and parking lot

As promised: lots of pictures are coming up!

The day started early somewhere in Hilversum where we met up at Jack’s place at 7:30. I was perfectly on time for a change, but stupidly enough I forgot to bring along my tickets and had to go home and print them out another time. Then after 45 minutes of driving we arrived in Zandvoort and encountered this near the gate of the circuit:
There is a long line of cars...
It took us another 45 minutes to actually reach the gates. 😮

This also meant one of the cars in our group ran into a little bit of trouble when its radiator hose snapped:
Pushing the 240SX HCS13
Yes, that is indeed 7Tune’s Allard van der Grafhorst pushing the HCS13 (with a CA18DET swap) to the entrance. After arrival at the paddock the hose was repaired and the the radiator topped with new coolant. Unfortunately we suffered from a similar traffic jam on our way back and after 8 kilometers the 240SX had to throw the towel in the ring. Very unfortunate and very sad moment of the day.

After passing the gate I spotted this beautiful view:

The Honda S2000 club doing their best to blend in with the scenery!

I parked my car next to this beautiful Sunny B13:
Oldskool Nissan Sunny B12 Coupe
It was absolutely 100% rust free. Not bad for a 25 year old car!

What made it even more special was its rear view:
Oldskool Nissan Sunny B12 Coupe
That’s one big genuine 1987 boot spoiler! Definitely inspired by the Cosworth Sierra counterpart!

And today I’ll close off with this perfect 1993 Nissan Silvia S13 K’s:
The perfect Nissan Silvia S13 K's
It has been fitted with a TRA Kyoto 6666 Customs front which is also known as the Rocket Bunny kit.

At the rear it is still fitted with the factory Silva bumper.

When shooting the Silvia I remembered I forgot to put on the polarization filter I bought a couple of days ago. During the day this filter proved to be the second best acquisition of the week!

Stay tuned for more photos of the parkinglot!
