    Default Japan Rally - Tokyo to Osaka

    My neighbor and I participated in a road rally last weekend from Tokyo to Osaka. Event is by a company just starting out called WorldXSeries who is apparently starting some of these in multiple places around the world.


    Took a few photos and had a really good time - got to drive the hell out of the GTR for more then just a trip to work or the store for once.


    I was planning on being back in time to show up early and have the staff put the stickers on the car once I arrived. I ended up needing to extend my trip in Russia and left there on Wednesday morning, got home Thursday morning to take a shower and then literally jumped in the car, grabbed my buddy and drove 7.5 hours from Kobe to Tokyo just in time for the welcome party. Made for an interesting experience with the jet lag initially.

    Guy who went with me came over and put the decals on the car a few days before - apparently it took a couple hours.



    Didn't get any shots of the car before the rally with it all cleaned up so took a couple right after getting home - still have not had time to take the stickers off so gets a few looks on the drive to/from work this week.









    Morning of the start - last minute prep and some photos.







    And we're off...






    We ended up driving directly through the Shinjuku district which is essentially the busiest place in Tokyo - same area you see the videos of with the thousands of people crossing the street all at once - fortunately for us it was Friday morning and not so terrible to get through and get some shots and then head out of town. Was interesting trying to keep the cars all together down there though - not easy.

    JDM R35 GTRs will allow Circuit Mode to be enabled here.





    They had a couple pretty prepped up Toyotas for us to rally in addition to the KTM. There was a 718 Boxter S but the tires were roached out on that pretty quickly. Once everyone got their fill of some laps we took off for Odawara for drinks and dinner.

    It was pitch black when we arrived at Odawara so we had some pretty amazing views when we woke up the next morning.

    Ate breakfast, took a few more photos, had the driver's meeting and then we were off again.
