Its been over a year since I made the temporary move to Australia and in that time I got to know Steve, owner of a gorgeous R34 GTR and owner of Facebook page GTR Life. Since the R34 Gtr is an extremely rare car in Singapore, I thought it might be a good idea to show case one of the most popular cars in Australia to the Singaporeans who rarely get to see a single R34 GTR. So I sacrificed my Sunday hanging out with EIGHT R34 Gtrs just so I could grab some photos for you guys.
Its a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
Picture a reasonably cloudy Sunday, the temperatures at a high of 22degrees and just spending the time with fellow car lovers. I knew it was going to be a fun day when I spotted a number of these cars on the road towards the meet location.
We are back with the second part of the Tokyo Auto Salon 2014 since the long awaited Part 1. The other brand that had a booth that was swapped with audience is none other than Trust with their R35X which grabbed best of show for 2014.
First of all, thank you Red Bull Singapore for giving us this superb chance to walk into the garage of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team. Many of us have got no idea what is happening in the garages of a F1 racing team. As you guys know that this event takes place on the Marnia Bay Street Circuit and its the only F1 night race also the first street circuit in Asia.
Here i’ll show you more about this exclusive invitation to the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Garage Tour.
When I was in Taiwan, a friend of mine posted a poster of an upcoming meet called “Let’s Stance”. It was co-organised by many local and neighbouring Malaysian car enthusiasts. I agreed that I would go, but wouldn’t bother to wash my car or polish it due to it being a dimly-lit public venue, I could always leg it if authorities arrived and deem it to be an unlawful assembly (despite it being just a normal car meet).
The clock ticked past 11pm on the 18th of May. A miniscule gathering of friends gathered to embark on a 300+ KM drive up to Sepang International Circuit, to act as a support and pit crew for a friend who was participating in the Time To Attack, organized by ZerotoHundred.com.
The composed calmness in their eyes do not reflect the slightly rickety hands nor the thumping heartbeats of both drivers preparing to tear up the track, sideways. A riveting highlight of the event that attracted a large crowd, both the young and the young at heart, was the 1/10 RC drift competition organized by Street Revolution, a local RC supplies store.
It has been a week since the inaugural Tokyo Auto Salon Singapore was held at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Center. The event attracted many car enthusiasts from around the region. Photos have been circulating around the internet and audiences that graced the event experienced first hand what the Japanese car tuning scene could offer. Let us now take a look at the highlights of this car show that had thousands flocking to the venue. It was 9am on the first day of the event, and the media was set and ready for a preview of the offerings, just before the gates opened to the public at 10am.
The first car that stood before me was one that was familiar, one that I came across during the Nayoga Exciting Car Showdown – the Re Amemiya Rx7. I believe there are enough photos around the net showcasing Amemiya san’s smooth flowing creation. A definite high of the show.
