The Dutch Toyota importer Louwman has been neglecting their heritage and clubs for the past decade. With the launch of the Toyota GT86 (aka Toyota 86 and Scion FR-S) they decided to change that and asked the TACN if they could join in and put the Toyota GT86 on display during the festival. They also has some sort of social media contest (which IMO was rubbish and did not do) where you could “win” 4 rounds on the Midlands circuit in Lelystad. It was still a nice gesture.
Near the end of the day one of the AEU86 members went home and parked his kouki panda red Corolla GT AE86 next to its siblings:
I immediately walked over and shot a couple of pictures of father and son next to each other. 😉
Quickly popped in my 28mm lens to make the angle wider: Continue reading
I’m still not done yet with the Japanse Autosport Festival: there is still some odd stuff lying around. 😉
First of all Ibrahim and I spotted this terrific Toyota MR2 AW11 parked opposite of my Carina in the parkinglot:
Only to find out a couple of hours later (when it passed by the place the S13 had overheated again) that this very same car used to belong to 7Tune blogger Allard van der Grafhorst who immediately recognized it!
When I found the picture of Fuji International Speedway I posted last week I got an Initial D feeling from the whole scene. So I could not resist modifying it with some comic sound effects from Initial D:
Comic version: Fuji Speedway International visit
Even better to keep this version in your family album, right?
Now this is a real happy meal: this guy eats his Mc Donalds meal while drifting the Ebisu North course! Not only does he eat it on the straights, but he also does it Bunta style and picks up and returns his milkshake into the cupholder! Now that is EPIC!
Now if only he could pick up his order on the drive through this way! 😀
Also check out his extensive (and humorous) report on this trick on Youtube.

I was browsing some videos on Youtube and came across this Japanese Candid Camera gag (at least that’s what I think it is) putting some celebrity in a Fire Cola commercial where the taxi driver drives Takumi style with a Toyota Crown S130:
Yep, all the cola end up on that poor celebrity! Again and again, and again, and again, and again … until some very well known cop arrives on the scene in Seibu Keisatsu style. 😀
As you can see, it is very difficult to keep even a cup of Cola in your hands when the driver is doing 180s and you are sitting in the back. That’s why Takumi has his cupholders up front and not in the back! 😉
