Catching the first flight out of Tokyo’s Haneda airport was always going to be a tough ask considering how little sleep I usually get, but making my way down to Okayama International circuit in western Honshu to cover the season opener for Super GT 2014 more than got me motivated. 2014 is an important and exciting year for the series as it ushers in a potentially great new slew of changes that can realistically spur this series to greater heights now and in the future years to come… Read more

EDITORIAL – WHY EVERYONE SHOULD JUST SHUT UP AND TEST-DRIVE AN 86 OR BRZ

February 3, 2013 by  
Filed under Japanese News, Latest Articles

People should just quit their bitching about these cars already. Less than a year into production and all I hear is nonsense from people who know absolutely nothing about them. These people’s opinions are like ex’s; we’ve all had one and yet, most of what comes with the fallout is baseless trash talking. And the 86 and BRZ quite simply don’t deserve it… Read more

If you don’t like 86′s and BRZ’s, the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon is definitely not the place for you. Not only is this the biggest salon in years, but it is absolutely LOADED with Toyotas and Subarus. I must have counted one 86 or BRZ for every five or six other cars. There are easily over 100 of Japan’s latest builds on the twin platforms that are sweeping the world and making people gnash their teeth at the sometimes 18 month waiting list to order the cars… Read more

FEATURE – THE FAIRLADY ZED 432R
