Event>> Idlers Games Tsukuba – Pt2

I was glad to see that the Idlers Games coverage went down so well so I've prepared another selection of pictures from last Sunday's epic event at Tsukuba. I did focus quite a bit on the Porsche presence, as I personally have a thing for anything wearing the all-important Rauh Welt windshield sticker, but it would be a pity not to show more of the other cars that were also participating.

The event was split into various classes, each with its own qualifying session, followed later on in the day by a race with a proper grid start. 

Oh there you go, another Rauh Welt Porsche, I just can't help myself! 

This RS proved that simplicity is just as effective as any other type of style.

Lining up with the rest of the vintage class was this 2-door Corolla 1200 Deluxe station wagon, a very curious looking car that I have never seen before. The rear was mostly stripped out to help keep that weight low. It's really incredible what you bump into at events like this.

Another AE86 running the new TE37Vs, albeit in a much smaller offset and width than the ones we saw in the first part.

This Levin just screams grip! Not a single zip tie in sight!

It would be wrong not to give any love to all the little Minis that were present at the event, probably one of the most sought after import car in Japan. There are so many Mini tuners and resellers in Japan, probably more than I ever saw when I was living in the UK! 

Nissan Sunny on Watanabe wheels.

First chance I got to see some TE37Vs spinning around rather than on display! Now that the initial supply shortages are over I'm sure I will be seeing them fitted to all sorts of cars. 

The "Blossom Joker" in out in action. 

One of the classes is dedicated to all generations of Mazda Roadsters.  

I was very interested in taking a closer look at this FD3S after I saw it out in action. That massive rear wing, on top of being the biggest spoiler I've ever seen fitted to a street car…

…was actually electronically controlled to go into this position as soon as the driver gets on the brakes hard, effectively creating a massive air-brake. Think McLaren F1 and Bugatti Veyron. The owner told me he had designed and built the whole set-up himself! Very ingenious.

One way to get noticed!

S30 perfection.

The white RWB Porsche we saw in part 1 easily overtaking an Alfa Romeo 155 V6.

Ready to fly!

The vintage side of the paddock had quite the line up. 

The rarities didn't end with the Corolla station wagon, but included this spotless Autozam AZ-1…

…this race-ready Alfa Romeo Giulia…

…and Giulia Sprint.

I spent some time looking over this 1967 Honda S800 race car with its single seater layout and low windscreen.

Remember the military green RWV 930; well you will be pleased to know that the engine looks just as good and as functional as the interior. Before each track outing the yellow filters were removed from each of the six intake funnels.

Hope you all enjoyed this vast selection of legendary cars from the Idlers Games. I'll be covering many more of their events throughout the course of the year as I am well and truly hooked!

I think the idlers games coverage is the most mesmerizing in terms of raw awesomeness and car pressence of character. Each car posted could deserve a feature on its own!! Love these events
