Close-Up: The Circuit Scalpel – Esprit’s NSX

On many occasions, probably due to lack of my creativity, I’ve written excerpts on this site comparing certain managerial techniques to a variety of car builds.  That may or may not have something to do with my education and work background in the business sector, but I feel it’s something I can comfortably relate to.  These topics, at surface level, I would imagine to be somewhat obscure on an automotive website.  The truth of the matter is, in almost all regards, the processes discussed are very much applicable to time attack builds.  The practice of Continual Improvement is one such business practice, and in the realm of time attack, not many shops demonstrate this practice better than Esprit in the ongoing development of their NSX.

Event: VTEC Club 2015 Round 2 – Big Willow Gallery

On the Sunday of February 22nd, VTEC Club held the second event of their 5 round season at Big Willow at Willow Springs International Raceway.  The excitement and success of the first round no doubt carried through to the club’s follow up event with, once again, over 50 entrants participating.  To say the day was perfect though, would be a stretch.  The week leading up to the event, the temps in Southern California had steadily been dropping, and rain was on the forecast for race weekend.  Ryan was once again on hand to grab some shots of the event.

Encounter: The Height of Challenge – ATTKD GTR32

I’ve always held ATTKD in high regard.   Not only because of their rich history in parts development and tuning, but more so because of their ability to put pressure on the frontrunners of time attack. The surprisingly large shop based out of Nagano is responsible for a handful of notable Nissan builds; namely their flagship 32 you see here.  Working closely with their long time test driver, Mitsuhiro Kinoshita, they were able to get under 2 seconds shy of the Top Fuel S2000; which has quickly become the benchmark for time attack at Fuji.  In an almost ‘behind the scenes’ fashion, MitsuhiroKinoshita piloted the Skyline around Fuji Circuit in a remarkable 1’40.925.

Wekfest Japan 2015 Official Pre-Meet Coverage…

The Chronicles© - No Equal Since 2008 | www.stickydiljoe.com

As many of you know, the annual Wekfest Japan event is coming up in a few short months and the official Pre-Meet took place recently in Osaka, Japan. Normally, the official Pre-Meet takes place the day before the actual event happens but apparently, the Japanese just like to do things differently. There were some familiar faces there as usual but the rain came down pretty hard, making it difficult to cover the event. Still, my boy Yasu Shimomukai came through once again and was able to capture some of the cars present at the meet. It is a pretty short update compared to most that you’re used to here on the site but still good nonetheless. Enjoy and thanks for looking! Wekfest Japan takes place on May 3rd, 2015 at Port Messe in Nagoya, Japan. I can’t wait!….
