15 turn-outs for Can-Am & 13 for F-1.

Good numbers, considering such usual suspects as Morio Hashimoto & Husky Kurata didn't make it.

They may be saving energy for our evening banquet on September 12??? :beach:

Congratulations to Tebu for taking a double win, and to you Haruki for a second place in Can-Am.  It looks like the race program is getting stronger over there, great to see!

Tim, 

 

13-15 turn-outs will be expected at the banquet at the regular joint run by one of Retro Tokyo racers, Ryu.

We will enjoy much more relaxing atmosphere there than we do at the raceway. :laugh2:  :popcorm1:  :beach:

Rick,

 

Yoshi & his younger brother, Take, the Hirose brothers, were hard-core Camen wing car racers in the 1980's & 90's.

I am so glad that Yoshi joined our retro racing program in Tokyo.

He is now one of the most competitive racers/builders of Retro Tokyo.

Hello Haruki. The racing in Tokyo seems to be coming along quite well. More racers, fast times, and good lap totals. Do you plan on having a championship race weekend like we have in the states like the Sano, Brawl or Palooza? I have a bucket list, and coming to Japan to race retro Tokyo is at the top. I know it's not cheap so it would take a bit of planning and time but would be a great experience.

It is a great honor for us to receive such an encouragement from Matt & John.

I will talk to our Retro Tokyo racers about having a championship race weekend in Tokyo, hopefully in one year or so.

How excited!!

 

Good Racing,

 

Haruki

That would be fantastic Haruki. I'm sure we could get a group from the states to make the trip with enough planning time. You have supported us for many years both east and west coast races it would be awesome to return the favor and help Retro Tokyo grow and make some new friends.

Bucket list! :good:  About $400.00 a day to stay in Tokyo - perhaps the world's most expensive city to visit? Last I checked a round trip flight from Detroit to Tokyo was $2,400.00. I am sure my wife would want to go as well. If I ever get a chance to visit Japan and race with the Retro Tokyo group one other thing I would like to do is attend a Japanese baseball game. Congratulations to the Little League baseball team from Japan on taking the Little League World series in Pennsylvania. Their team showed great discipline, poise and patience in a come from behind win over a team from California. Baseball is still my first love. :heart: Perhaps if enough of us can agree on the trip and the Tokyo racers would have us, we could plan this as a small group a couple of years from now??

 

How about it Haruki?
