10 Golden Week Japan Wekfest PASMAG

Golden Week is a week in Japan that contains a cluster of holidays that adds up to a whole week off. Our contributor, Ken Au, planned his trip to Japan with the help of Simon Chan from Lost Royalty during this relaxing period, spending his time visiting the shows and meets that take place during this pause in pace of the big city rat race. Here is the solid gold he brought back for us.

01 Daikoku Parking Area Japan Golden Week PASMAG

DAIKOKU PARKING AREA: The Diakoku parking area is not easily accessible for many, as there is only one entrance into the lot. It is located North East of Yokohama, where the Metropolitan Expressway Bayshore route intersects with the Metropolitan Expressway K5 Daikoku Route, where every night, it is one of Japan’s hottest spots for automotive meets.

We happened to go on a weekday of Golden Week, so we didn’t expect to see many outrageous cars, as people tend to leave their busy city lives behind to explore the country side. On the contrary, thankfully, a large number still showed up and gave us a taste of Japan’s iconic meet up spot. We were not surprised when we arrived to see an interesting variety of cars, from VIP to street tuner.

Drift 4 Cash 2011: Pre Event to the DMCC Season

It was a drift event of unusual circumstance – pro and pro-am drivers mixed together. After qualification it was time for what everyone had shown up for: the top 8 battles. This event was dramatically different; each tandem battle winner would receive cash-in-hand, right on the track – this isn’t the world of giant checks and credit. These are cold-hard, mint oriented Canadian dollars. Rookie professional, Jeff Laflamme, in his V8, S13, qualified at the top of the heap and snagged the most of the loot. Second place went to Francis Tasse in his V8, super charged S14, despite putting…
