2014 GoodSmile Racing and TeamUKYO

Like years before GoodSmile Company announced their Super GT racing program at the Winter Wonder Festival.  They showed off the new car design and 2014 Racing Miku design not to mention the team members and the lovely Race Queens.  And I noticed something very different as well.  There was a new name and surprisingly absent from the Team name was Studie.  Where's Studie?  Well they went their separate ways and went on to start another Super GT team this year in collaboration with BMW of Japan. So yeah there's that.

The Race Queens of 2013: part 1!

We are well on our way to the arrival of the 2014 Super GT race season (April 6) and other Japanese racing events so I thought I'd take a moment to look back and celebrate the lovely Race Queens of the 2013 season.  You've seen many of them in the daily (OK...mostly daily) Race Queen Hottie slot over there to the left.

KAZ: Pushing The Virtual Divide

I remember the first game I bought after I bought my first Sony Playstation.  It was Gran Turismo and I loved that game and played the ever loving crap out of it. And while I may have languished in the keeping up with the game on various Sony Playstation platforms I have always admired the game and believe that if I do find my self buying a new Playstation in the future the first game that I would buy for it would be the latest Gran Turismo game. Interesting enough, buried in a box somewhere in the house I still have the first two games of Gran Turismo packed away.

With that in mind I was thrilled to see that the Playstation channel uploaded the full length movie KAZ: Pushing The Virtual Divide for everyone to watch.  Enjoy --

--This film is about drive. It's about the passion and creative drive of Kazunori Yamauchi, the architect behind Gran Turismo's birth and breath-taking fifteen-year evolution. This film will trace his relentless willingness to challenge himself, to hold none of his past achievements sacred, and push beyond the virtual divide in his pursuit of perfection. Through the support of PlayStation, Kaz's journey has forever changed the gaming and automotive landscape and in doing so, has redefined how we perceive the relationship between art, entertainment and culture.--
