Looks like they have as much fun as we do judging by the vids, best of luck to all involved, a low 54 should do it ;) :D

The track looks great fun, no poxy slow corners but one continuous high speed series of bends. It looks super smooth too like the Nurburgring GP circuit, so will respond to a fairly stiff setup compared to the tracks we used in the UK this year.

Good luck everyone


I have had quite a few laps of this circuit (on forza :D ) not a favorite because of the 3 hairpins, but I can imagine it's a totally different thing in real life ;)

Have fun


P.s. who pays to get the cars over ?

The Barnes' tell me December is very dry, so weather should be spot on for turbo-charged cars :)

AFAIK the Tokyo area doesn't get much snow... In December /January the 'Sea of Japan' side of the country gets snow, the Pacific Ocean side is dry.

But let's not get all meteorological ;) :D

Good luck in your Japan trip.
Not quite sure what happened to ours last year but it never materialised. :(

last years trip was a fubar due to a lot of broken promises from people across the water. This years trip is funded by the people who are going. We are not relying on sponsors to pay for it, so it will definitely be going ahead, if we get soem sponsorship in the meantime than that's all good.

Good luck to all involved.

I would have loved to do this but for a few reasons, car not up to spec, nay cash. Couldn't even afford to go over to watch/holiday.

Next year maybe?

I'm sure you'll all break a minute;)
