Even though it was my last event with Laguna Seca, I’m glad I got to see some of these amazing cars up close and in person. My ears were definitely ringing after every race. The pure power that comes from these cars simply puts a smile on my face.
The HKS R32 GTR has been my favorite car for a while now. From the iconic livery to the fire-breathing RB, everything about this car screams awesome. I had seen this model at Berkeley Ace Hardware last year, I’m still sad to see the hobby store close and the store move. I finally found one available online since Tamiya had discontinued it, and bought it as soon as I could. I’m very happy with the final result, minus some parts like the passenger door where some of the decal was torn off. I’m trying to focus more on detail now, so smaller brushes will definitely be necessary for whatever I build next. Model building is much like meditation, I guess it’s my form at least.
Finally have some free time, race weekend at the racetrack is no joke. Before gearing up at the track, I was able to have a few weeks where I was able to visit the seaside, and go to Baconfest. I definitely need to go on some drives soon to actually use my camera. Can’t wait to drive up to Washington next month, time for some good landscapes and cool cars.
Oregon is definitely the place for color film. With green trees everywhere and awesome landscapes, I just want to return and stay in Oregon.
The last month has definitely been filled with some cool cars. It started with a Fatlace Friday, and their pre-bimmerfest meet at the Fatlace Paddock. It was a fun filled Friday evening with great music, good people, and some milk tea. I will definitely be going to the next one on June 24 for their collab release with Mooneyes.
Next is interning everyday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Even though most of the work is in the office, it’s nice to venture down to the pits and look at whatever cars show up that day. From trans-am racers to Porsche’s, it’s awesome to see people that share a common love of cars race at the track.
Some film from our Oregon trip will be up once I actually get the prints back from being developed. Can’t wait to share them!
Well I really don’t like the amount of participation I’ve been putting into photography, and creating content for this blog. I hope to be doing some cool events this summer, so expect to see some coverage from those events. I may try some video, since I’ve been wanting to try it out. Since I’ll be staying down in Monterey this summer, I really want to work on bringing everything to the next level. Also, can’t wait to get some rolls of film back from being developed.
What’s better than a beautiful Saturday, and some chilled out classics? Hoping that some free time opens up so I can actually go and do something fun rather than endless projects and essays.
A lap around a wet Thunderhill West from last months’ track day. Super fun to be able to test the car in the rain, but not so fun having to be outside in the weather. Can’t wait for the next track day where hopefully it’ll be a little less wet.
I’ve said it before, but I really do enjoy shooting film. Here’s some coverage of the last Speed SF track day I attended. We tried to make the best out of the stormy whether, and ended up have a pretty great time.
