went to Redline Time Attack today even though i’m hella sick… yea i feel you too Rogan-san lol but i aint taking that Wild Turkey… hahha but yea, sunny day out in Fontana it was. became windy after lunch though. and my lips got hella dry… i always forget my chapstick to these outdoor events in open field.
今日はRedline Time Attackに行って来ました。むっちゃ風邪だったけど…ローガン、わかるよお前のその風邪（笑。でもね、俺はワイルドターキーで治そうとはしないぜww。そんな事は置いといて、フォンタナは良い天気でした。ランチの後は風がスゴかったけど。唇もめっちゃ乾いた。いぃーっつも外のイベントで忘れるんだよねリップクリーム（日本語でなんて言うんだっけ？w）。
not many spectators were there. maybe because it was the first day.
but yea anyways, here’s the shots from the first day. i won’t be going tomorrow (gotta do laundries lol and fix my mom’s computer). some guy was next to me with a nice telephoto lens, but was disappointing. had the green on… 😦 if i get judged by what equipment i have and use, that’s bull shiet. my zoom is a under $400 cheapy with slow focus and no image stabilizer. and i still take better shots than those spoiled kids with some high end equipment!! lol
my only reason i started photography, motorsports. not shooting a scenery, not shooting naked chicks (although i will lol), not making club event coverage. but motorsports. i really need to get that career build up anytime.
been talking about this gap we have with them. a FIA approved EXAS III but with a larger waist size. or, doesnt have to be FIA. can be accommodated with SFI regulation which lot of NASCAR peeps uses as well. currently under our line of products, there is no race certified (FIA, SFI etc) seat that fits into a small car such as a Mazda Miata or a Honda S2000, where a lot of track demands are high. they can just close off their glove box and strip off the door panles maybe? lol but now the problem is the waste sizing. our seat, the typical Asian size, is not a US friendly size along with the height of the shoulder bolsters.
think big people dont drive a small car? they actually love the small cars as myself being 6’3 half sized 1/4 Korean mixed Japanesian with a waist size of 38-40. tall people drives Lotus Exige in Europe. fat peeps drives a Miata here in US. small people drives a Hummer H2 in Japan lol such a high demand big people have for a small car. and majority dont fit in our seat lol and thats why other companies such as RECAROs and SPARCOs (with FIA certification) is still a top notch seller out there in the motorsports market and we have more name on the show car market. which is sad. i’ve been wanting to close off this gap so it will open up to more variety of end users.
but, yea tooling cost and other mucho dineros seeks behind this production. how should i pull this out from them in this such recession moments… even if i was able to spot a funding source (which i already have actually), they’d be conservative and just leave a grin in my face. or even if i earn a actual GO for the production, shiet takes time to make a seat. just like the XL ZETA III we have. took 2 years, and thats a pretty darn long time frame for a end user to actually wait for the seat to come out. and users have switched to other manufactures which is understandable. i would. cant be waiting that long.
IDRC was… to be honest, wasnt great. GReddy Fest had much more people on the go. o, nice meeting you Curtis!! thanks for following my blog 🙂 but yea, GReddy Fest was a much better out come for us. more people and more sales. IDRC was more like a picnic out to the track with friends. yea weather was hot (highest at 107F/42C) and venue was far. but still, i dont think they advertised it enough and this some what foreshadows how much readers they have under their publication. and, how many of the Californians are more interested in car shows rather then “motorsports”. kid’s hobbies are shifting away from cars these days 😦 becoming such a niche market. oh well thats what it is and got to stick with it. maybe its about time reconsidering things over here.
Suzuka Circuit recently held the SUPER GT associated testing day.
the new Honda HSV is grabbing a lot of attentions this year i guess. the HSV had some problem with the steering assy and #18 crashed at the 130R. all the HSV were back in the pit area for ascertainment.
day two of REDLINE. its was hella windy this morning… shiets were flying every where. special thanks to Tree-san for the carne-asada-san!! 🙂 Buddy Club had a BBQ next to their booth, next to the woman’s restroom.
