2012 RQ Team: D'station Fresh Angels

Back again a week before the next Super GT race with the lovely Race Queens from team D'station Fresh Angels.  A four member Race Queen team that supports the Super GT GT500 team of Kondo Racing who race the D'station Advan GT-R car #24.  So far the team hasn't done all that well but we still have several more rounds to go before anything can be said about that.  But we're here for those four lovely Race Queens anyways.

Project Jetta: Part 13

'89 VW Jetta GLLucky 13. That's right we are at lucky part 13 of Project Jetta and we have good news to report.  Since painting the trim pieces I've done a few other small little things and then we did some big things as well.  Summer is here and it's hot something I really hate even though I don't drive during the day that often.  So I decided to spend my work bonus on doing something every car needs.  Window tint!  And I also fixed the A/C.

2012 Northwest Motorfest

Porsche 911 CarreraWow it was hot this morning when I headed down to the Expo center to check out this year's Northwest Motorfest.  Billed as the largest automotive show in Boise I think it kinda missed the mark this year or it could just be because it was Sunday morning and there was a freak rain shower the night before.  In any case I've come to expect to see a lot of the same old same old at many of the local big car shows and that's in large part what I found.

Idlers Games rd 2: The Return of Stella!

Woot back burner post time.  In a couple weeks one of the most intense summer pro-am enduro races in Japan will take place at Sportland Sugo and the Twin Ring Motegi track.  That's right folks the 12hr +9min Idlers Games Enduro event goes down on July 29, 2012.  And Team RWB plans on being there with a hand full of cars again.  But before we get there lets go back a little bit to June 3, 2012 and the second round of the regular Idlers Games races and the return of the original RWB Nakai-san's own Stella Artois machine.

Porsche Coffee & Cars July

Porsche Coffee & Cars eventAnother month another fun and spirited Porsche Coffee and Cars event.  It was a bit smaller turn out this month as a large group of the people who usually show up were heading to Salt Lake City on Sunday for the Porsche Parade.  Of course that didn't keep something really interesting from showing up before the drive.  And I'm glad I'm always early because I was able to get it on film.  The drive was pretty good as well.

Mugen CR-Z GT

That's right you're not dreaming anymore. From the speculations of Aug 2010 comes the final race ready hybrid CR-Z to compete in the GT300 class in Super GT.  After seeing some manufacturing pictures of what looked like a Honda CR-Z getting the Super GT treatment I speculated about it's inclusion in Super GT.  And now just shy of a couple years is the Mugen CR-Z GT car that will be ready to race at Sugo during the 4th round of the 2012 Super GT season.

2012 RQ Team: Bomex&Verity JLOC GALS

It's been a a while since out last RQ Team post and that's totally my fault I keep getting busy doing other things that I just don't have a lot of time to go hunting down Race Queen stuff.  In any case this time around we are looking at one of the three JLOC Lamborghini GT300 teams.  And I'm starting with arguably the cutest of the three teams, the Bomex & Verity JLOC Gals which is also the smallest of the four JLOC teams at only three members.
