Japan's Kei Car Racing Scene Is Serious Pint-Sized Fun

Fellow expatriate in the Land of the Rising Sun and OppositeLock devotee Flavien Vidal is back. He's sharing his happy fun times at a track devoted to racing Japan's littlest cars that could. Welcome to your look inside kei car racing: they may be small, but they sure can be fun.

[JAPAN] Visit at My Local Racetracks - Kei-Car Racing

Today I went to check out my local racetracks.

First I went to Spa.

Yop, Spa, in Japan :). Spa Nishiura Motor Park. It's 40 minutes drive away from my home and today the track happen to host one of the "Tokaรฏ Hot-K" event. Kei-cars, Kei-trucks EVERYWHERE! :)

Then I went to visit another racetrack near by, KOTA. It's not the Kirtuit Of The America, but a small racetrack, that host track days with regular cars along with rental gokarts. The palce was beautiful, surrounded by mountains. Just beautiful.

Next time I'll most likely go to the two other local ractracks in my area. Another small track where I will be able to rent a car this time to test the track, and another small track you might have heard of called Suzuka ;)

Photodump incomming!

PS: of course I still don't have a proper camera and I hate myself for that because I know that with a nice 300mm F2.8 lens I would have taken some GREAT pictures there... oh well... next time. Meanwhile, enjoy cell phone pictures lol
