Battle Evome Final – Highlights
By Elena Nikolova
Two sleepless weekends in a row for me, and probably a whole sleepless week for the time attack enthusiasts who took part in Battle Evome at Tsukuba circuit this month. Last two rounds were just a week apart so there was little prep-time before the final round on Sunday. The fight against time is definitely not for lazybones. I set off for the circuit at 3:30 AM on Saturday a week ago with part of the Evome Battle staff and it was worth it for sure. Seeing everything from the very start and leaving with the last cars is a one of a kind experience.
|We got to Tsukuba around six but we were hardly the first to arrive. A snow-covered JDM STi from yukiguni (“snow land”) Nagano was already there, engine running, waiting for its rivals.|
|I was happily shooting this Fairlady at the crack of dawn when I saw the Kyushu-Danji Racing team arriving!|
|While they were defrosting the ice-covered windshield of the Tomiyoshi NSX with some hot green tea from the vending machine, another top team showed up.|
