Well that time of year again for the infamous Tokyo Auto Salon. I was actually planning to not attend this event basically since I could only go on Sunday. Anyone who covers this even know without a doubt that Sunday is the WORST day to go for media. Tokyo Auto Salon is a task in it’s because if the sheer size of the event, which this year has jumped from 8 halls to 11. Great point in more positive ways. I ended up going and was VERY glad I did.
This year I’ll start with the D1 2013 Kick-off which was held.
First set of cars getting ready to start punishing the asphalt and give the spectators a taste of the upcoming D1 series. From now on less text and more photos. There really isn’t much to say when it comes to this kind of thing.
Hibino’s new 86 ready to hit the pavement.
Kumakubo’s C33 Laurel just has that look that I love
Kumakubo gets a little too close and rubs Hibino’s 86.
The last run resulted in Kawabata’s 180sx getting a bit of a make over by Daigo. Daigo went a bit wide, from my view, and tapped Kawabata’s rear which spun him out.
A great bit of fun and I have video of this so stay tuned for a video piece once the photos are all up.
