Default Best Motoring- American Touge 2

Just a heads up to all the So Cal pepole

Best Motoring will be filming their newest movie "American Touge 2" this Tuesday at Willow Springs Int. Raceway in CA.

Myself along with 40 other finalists will be competing for 6-10 spots in the video. It satared out with hundreds of entrants and my RS actually made it to the final round

This shoot is open to the public so come check it out.

Heres my car that I will be running. My tires are getting mounted on the volks but other than that this is what she will look like

Is it on the Horsethief Mile track again?

Are you going to use R-Compound tires?

Good Luck!

Good luck to you guys and all the other Subies.

I was browsing the list the other day. That's some stiff competition.

Every time I hear "American Togue," my mind for some reason thinks "Beverley Hills Ninja" or "Jamacan Bobslead Team."

Best of luck, though. It's a good event no matter where it is.

Well, it's a "closed track", but it looks more like a mountain road that they just closed off for the day.

It looks like a mountain road. But it's not

You can't see it in all of them, but in a few of them you can see the car pull into it. It's part of some motorsports complex.

edit: for clarity, I mean the Gunsai Touge they use in most of the Touge Showdown stuff

There's still big trees a couple feet off the road. An "off" there might be your last. That's why those videos are crAzy!

The Gunsai "track" where they do the Touge stuff for the DVD's is actually a series of bicycle trails. Uma Cycle Sport Center, I believe it's called.

Horse Thief would make a good Touge track ... tight, hilly.





It's the track in the upper half of these photos below; the cars are on the Streets of Willow course.

I just referred back to the first American Touge movie, and they said they used the Horse Thief Mile for the competition.
