One long year of preparing our cars…and one long week of hourly checking the weather forecasts for May 12th 2012… Well Japfest 2012 has come and gone leaving its mark on us all with sun burnt skin and clothes smelling of tortured tyres…oh yes it was worth it!
We woke up bright and early at 5am getting everything ready for the day ahead, We left are meeting spot at around 7am to take a slow drive to Castle Combe only to be heading into a long queue of cars waiting to get in.It was about 8.30 when we all parked and meet up, With three cameras, A camslider and tripod we were finally set-up for the day taking as many pictures and as much footage as we could.Okay now lets get into the action…A perfect example of what an Integra should look like, Loving the gold BBS splitsThe start of the s-body generation, You don’t see many of these around any more
This year the Honda scene definitely step up there game, especially with standards like this 3rd gen EF on some Rota BM8′s… Clean and simpleLooks like it had just been imported straight from japan.
