Smile Event: JAF 2008 in Holland (lots of pics - 56k beware!)

30 March 2008...

I woke up really early... kept on turning and turning in my bed. I could already feel the tension in my body of going to a big event like JAF (one of the main events for Japanese cars in Holland). The fact that there is a shiny Skyline with a full tank of gas, ready to roll, also doesn't help...

Perhaps the adrenaline had another reason... It also will be my first time ever to do a track time on the circuit...

Here is a pictures compilation... lots of them so you will have something to look at (nothing on TV anyway)


























































Puff Daddy style...








































Black-on-black!

What also was a great experience was driving on the circuit together with the Skylineclub. Really first time for me...

The track was wet, so we had to be careful but it was a great time. The Skyline saloon handeled great and could handle much more than me. Fun to see that the 'family Skyline' could keep up with the 'big boys' (eventhough maybe they weren't really flooring it).
