After the first few days in Tokyo, I headed up to Sendai to visit SUGO for Super Gt. Seeing a race in person has been a bucket list thing for me ever since the early Gran Turismo games. Timings ended up working out a bit strange with travel so I had some time to kill, doing some quick googling I found that Pro Shop Screen was close ish so I jumped in a taxi and headed there.
Most of you might know them from their RX7 time attack car’s seen in multiple Hot Version videos, lately they’ve been working heavy with the GTR and GT86 platforms. They had both their demo cars parked up when I got there plus a few others.
The shop staff were really rather surprised I’d made my way out there but were happy enough to let me snap a few photos.
They had alot more cars than I’d expected, all tuned with time attack/grip driving in mind. Interesting to see the two GT86’s prepped for totally different restrictions in terms of aero.
This Evo X was one of their customer cars, build looked mean! The mechanic stopped working on it for a bit to pose and then went back to work.
As I wandered back from Pro Shop Screen I came across this, of all the things I’d expect to find. It wouldn’t be a Mazda 787B kids ride! It was left in a totally empty car park gathering dust, I’d of taken it home with me if I could of! Crazy to think cars and random memorabilia like this could just be sat outside and left to rot away.
