●Tsukuba Super Battle 2006 (Rev Speed Magazine)
This is THE event of the year for me. This is what I enjoy the most, fast modified cars out on track proving what they can do. Fastest car this year was the M-Speed GTR which managed a 55.230 sec lap with Tanaka-san behind the wheel. Yamada-san drove the Cyber Evo (now built & looked after by Unlimited Works, not Garage HRS) and posted a 55.864 sec lap. Third place in the lap time rankings went to the R-Magic FD3S with a 55.947 sec lap.
Two days prior to the TSB 2006 Taniguchi broke the track record for a modified car with the HKS CT230R posting a 53.999 sec lap. Modified cars are all getting extremely fast nowadays and its always so enjoyable to be there in person seeing tuners battle it out. I'm already looking forward to next year's event!
