Battle Evome @ Tsukuba Circuit – Part 2
by Elena Nikolova
The Evome Battle on Tsukuba circuit surely offered lots of interesting cars. The race started at 9 in the morning, until 11, so there were short 30-minute sessions. There were two classes of cars. Class 1 are all heavily modified cars made for one purpose only – battle against time. And honestly, the amount of work that was put into each one is more than impressive. Even people who do it as their hobby are sheer maniacs. It seems that you can never get enough. So their cars are of course always works in progress, aiming for better times on every track day. The second fastest car on the track was the Exceed Moat S14, that made it in 56”870! You would imagine that top places would be taken by all-wheel drive cars, especially on a tight circuit like Tsukuba, but the Silvias were scary fast.
|Kiyo-san’s Top Fuel Racing RX-7 with a best time 57”811 took third place; very clean-looking, with a huge rear wing and the splitter to put the power down.|
