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.

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.

It was at a local motor show over a decade ago that I had my foremost encounter
with the Japanese car-tuning scene. The Kodak disposable cameras in their
trademark yellow casing were all the rage back than. I still recall vividly the flashes
from these devices going off brilliantly through out the venue, as their owners
endeavored to capture the JDM models and rides on film. To date, it is still one of
the finest motor shows ever held in Singapore in my books.
Fast-forward to 2013 and we have Singapore’s principle media company MediaCorp, in cooperation with Muse Group, bringing Tokyo Auto Salon Singapore 2013 to the shores of our tiny nation-state. The inaugural Singapore show will be held at the Marina Bay Sands Expo® and Convention Centre from 12-14 April 2013.

Although this is the third S2000 to be featured on The Right Wrong, it is the first time I’m writing about a fellow editor’s ride. Forgive me for being self indulgent, but Brendan has featured two of my previous cars in different magazines, one a centrefold, and the other adorning the cover page. By penning this article, I wouldn’t say I’m returning a favour, I would say he, and his S2000, very much deserve it.

I first encountered ClubITR (Integra Type R) at World Time Attack 2012 in Sydney last year. I took the chance to do a feature of one Club ITR DC5 while I was there. This time however brought me to the Melbourne branch of the end of month meet of Club ITR. There were a handful of Integra Type Rs on hand, but it was overwhelmed by pretty much everything Honda, not just limiting themselves to that one model.
A little shootout of our white cars. More pics and features coming soon 😉

I actually chanced upon this car on my way home one weekend with my music turned up loud, listening to a state of trance with Armin Van Buuren when I heard the screaming of a loud exhaust note over the music. A loud exhaust will always catch my attention and I checked my mirrors trying to make out what car was emitting that heavenly noise. The only hint were a pair of bright HIDs in my driver side mirror.
The only other thing I remember was letting out a “WOW” before turning my music down and winding down the window to fully appreciate this low sitting S2000 that shot by me. It was dimly lit and late in the night on the expressway when I first spotted this car and yet, something about the car appealed to me greatly. I immediately set out on a mission in hunting the owner down, making phone calls to friends in hope that somebody might be able to introduce me to an S2000 owner that could point me in the right direction of finding this car.
Guess who was the very first S2000 owner I happened to be introduced to?
