HKS Premium Day 2015 at Fuji Speedway

Post by tmk » Mon Jan 26, 2015 4:49 am

Not sure if this is interesting, but there were a few 8s there and a bunch of FDs (including Pan Speed's yellow monster) so the event had some rotary presence...

Anyway, HKS arranged their annual HKS Premium Day at Fuji Speedway yesterday and a lot of people and tuner shops were battling it out in the various classes in the Time Attacks arranged. As usual the most popular category was the R35 class where most of the cars sport north of 1,000hp. HKS and Top Secret usually fight for the top spot here (and HKS keep winning). When I left HKS had the lead in this battle with their car being driven by Taneguchi, however an S2000 with some massive aero (also driven by Taneguchi) was the putting down the quickest lap times (1:39-something, which is absolutely insane) of the day while I was there. For rotaries the Pan Speed was clocking in at a very respective 1:43-something. Too bad they didn't bring their 20B 8.

HKS also had their Premium Salon showing off new parts and such. Sadly nothing new for our 8s, but at least some of the electronic gadgets should work for us, and they of course still make stuff for the 8 such as their HKS Hipermax coil overs, etc. Also a bunch of tuner booths and some makers like Bride, Recaro, Yokohama, Works, etc. Tons of custom cars and such too.
