It seems like I was just doing a write-up for the 2010 Okinawa Motor Festival, but here I am back at it with some pics from the 2011 Okinawa Motor Festival. Much like last time, my notification of the event was happenstance – then it was a poster on a restaurant’s wall and this time it was a flier from the event organizer/promoter, D-Stage, as I just stopped by to check out their shop. A week later and I would have missed it.
Being a pretty small island, I expected the driver turn out to be pretty much the same; therefore, I didn’t plan much by way of camera memory. Only 79 pics to be exact. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find the field split between returning and new competitors. I had also learned last time that my camera isn’t really up to the task of shooting action shots, so I stuck to statics. And as much as I enjoy drifting, I really enjoy looking all the cars over. I hopped around the pits while the different run groups were cycling taking in a few runs now and then.
Part One’s a wrap. Part 2 coming.
