2012 AE86 Festival in Okayama: Part 1

Adam from 7Tune ventured all the way to this years AE86 Festival in Okayama.  Lots of AE86 and this year some new 86s too! Check out his fantastic coverage over at the 7Tune website.

As the official N2 race at the 2012 AE86 Festival in Okayama International Circuit is happening today, I thought it might be fun to back back to February when the all-too-familiar group of N2 racers converged on Tsukuba Circuit.

Interestingly, Tsuchiya isn’t driving the KMS-prepped Levin today at Okayama, instead running a different car with the old TRD livery back on the bodywork.  The new car is running an engine from Car Factory Ai with a bodykit from Custom Garage Speed and the new RAYS TE37V wheels instead of the traditional RS Watanabe configuration!

2012 results will be in very soon, but in the meantime, let’s enjoy the videos.

AE86 + BEAMS 3S-GE = Win

Not many videos on the YouTubes of an NA Altezza BEAMS powered AE86 on the circuit it seems! This rare find shows a racer hachiroku strapping the ass off lots of different makes and models around Okayama International Circuit.

The pictures of the Okayama AE86 Festival 2009 were posted last week by Garth. Slowly more pictures and videos are surfacing. :)

My personal favorite video of the festival is a game of leapmanji-frog played by four hachis on the straight of the circuit! Check em all out after the jump!


2009 AE86 Festival

It’s happening again! 2009 marks the 10th anniversary of the event, and Okayama International Circuit will again host the N2-style Challenge Cup Race! There will no doubt be much more AE86 love happening over the weekend too! I love this video, it’s reminiscent of the crazy antics of our very own AE86 Annual, except on a much larger, Japanesey scale!

After you are smiling like an idiot from watching the video, check out last year’s coverage by HR Blogger Harley, and then fall off your chair!

Impulse N2 @ Okayama ’08

Harley is currently in Japan resting after spending the day at Okayama last weekend, (no, he didn’t explode from AE86 overload but I’m sure he was DAAAMN close…) So whilst we wait for our full report on the 2008 AE86 Festival in Okayama International Circuit, we give you this in-car footage of the Impulse Car Service N2 racer smashing the OIC in 1’42.6. Simply pure audio heaven, not to mention some superb steering work!

So stay tuned as we will be bringing you first hand coverage from the event next week!
