Nismo Festival 2010

Last week Sunday, I went to the Nismo Festival at Fuji Speedway. This event is being held yearly at Fuji Speedway near Mount Fuji. I was invited to this event by Allen Lorenzo from Tomei and Dino Dalle Carbonare from Dino actually arranged Media access for me to shoot some video, how awesome is that! This is actually the first time I got media access to an event and what an event it was.

Let’s start with the video

Next to it being my first time having media access, it is also my first time at chouprojects. It’s awesome for seeing the latest Nismo race cars and the historic ones. Just seeing the cars you can see Nismo’s 26 years of history and feel the passion they put in them to get them to the level they are.

Watching these vehicles, I find myself driving my rental car just a bit more recklessly than I normally would. Specially taking into account that I’m here on vacation so I don’t know my way around. I’m not sure why, I guess looking at awesome cars will make you want to drive one, or drive yours like you would one of those! I’m not exactly worried about the car breaking down though, as one aspect I paid special attention to was my rental car, and I looked at many insurance companies to find the one that would give me the most bang for my buck. The whole trip has been quite expensive, which is no surprise and I of course planned for, but still, if I have to spend I make sure I do so where my money will count the most. I have great coverage, and if anything happens they’ll take care of me. Of course, I’m worried about hurting myself or others so I eventually go back to driving normally.

It’s just that the sound that some these race machines make when passing by is incredible, but ear-deafening. Any Nismo fan out there should really go to this event, you will not regret it.

    Hi Thanks for you comments. I have to confess that my French is not that good.
