8/6 Day - Fuji Speedway!

Well finally I can release some of the photos from 8/6 Day in Fuji Speedway, Japan last month... So here goes.. Hope you Enjoy!

It was to be an early start for the trip to Fuji Speedway! 8/6 day in Japan wouldn't be the same with an action packed AE86 (Hachi-Roku) Event. We left Tokyo very early to bypass some of the crazy weekend holiday traffic. Arriving at Fuji after 9am we were very lucky to have had a simple trip, when I was receiving messages from friends stuck in traffic for 2-3 hours and just turning back. Crazy Tokyo traffic!

On arrival at Fuji we automatically got the VIP Treatment around the circuit. Anyone who knows Fuji Speedway knows it's just HUGE, so after making our way up to the East we had breakfast and let the day take shape. Within no time the East side of Fuji Speedway had been taken over by 86's...It really was an amazing sight to be seen!

The event ('86 Style) featured the best AE86's, Open chat with Keiichi Tsuchiya and other drivers/tuners, aswell as Demo runs, Parage laps, Show Display and Drift arena. Toyota and Gazoo Racing (Toyota G's) brought out the new FT86 Concept II for everyone to check out and make improvements with feedback. We did plenty of features and interviews throughout the day, and worked VERY closely with G's and Toyota on the feedback for the FT86, so if you have any other genuine suggestions for the FT86, please let me know!

Enjoy the photos, we will start off with the Fuji '86 Drift Course...

Now this is what we came to see, some of Japan's best AE86's...
