Taste of Tsukuba was held 2Days since this year.
I think that it was great that this race which was not always proceeding on time as a result of race interruptions, for example, was also nice and smooth and safe (^ ^) ♪
Did the number of spectators recruitment increase? Is it?

In relation to other races in the usual year, although it was available only in autumn KAGURADUKI, SATSUKI can participate in this year, it was feeling that half of fun, half anxiety (^ ^ ;;

Meanwhile, the start of the first race at ZRX this week is Wednesday’s usual as usual (^ ^;;?

The first one is breaking up of the body and the motorcycle
And feel free to feel comfortable going out!
There is no grip at all and there is no good image of last year!
We confirmed movements one by one as to the confirmation work and what is misleading so much.
A short running time of 25 minutes is over.

Returning to the pit, investigate the cause with Mr. Konosu.
Actually, on this day, the temperature is over 30 degrees and the road surface temperature is close to 50 degrees, which is the cause of No. 1.

As I recall, I never ran ZRX at this road surface temperature, yeah, that’s right w
It runs only in November every year, and it was a rainy half w
Of course there is no data, in a situation like returning to the start. . .

The second one
After 2 laps, return to the pit and shake the set, repeat the pit after two laps.
It does not seem to be easy to think. . .
You can not fight as it is
Hmm. . .

I also consulted Mr. Oki who came with DUNLOP adviser and will change direction a little and give it a big deal.

Ah! A little feel good! It is!
Grips also come in, and the time will finally be able to turn around in the second half of 58 seconds.

But! It is!
Aim for records! It is! It is! It is! It is!
Traveling time is also a few minutes after!
Only the next two tests on Friday!
I have to decide now! It is! It is! It is! It is!

And pit stop up, shake the set big! It is!
I wonder if I left it at the moment I went out
I thought about it, but continued attacking in the absence of time

I did it. . . . .

2 Entry of the hairpin, at the moment when the first speed drops,
Slip down from the front. . .

It took the ZRX for the first time in the 4th year and took over by himself for the first time. . .

Fortunately minor injuries? Cab car, naked car was an enemy, broken something and arranged parts as soon as possible!
Dear BABYFACE, Ofa, Maeda-san, thank you very much m (_ _) m
Dear SHOEI, thanks to TAICHI, the body is no damage ♪

And Mr. Konosu was desperately trying to fix it perfectly by Friday and I was able to challenge the last test (^ ^) ♪

Last run before the race, there is no free practice on the day of the race, so we have to decide today!

After all, the road surface temperature exceeds 50 degrees.
Started on a used tire from Wednesday

I will not grip at all from the first lap! It is! It is! It is! It is!
Eh ー ー ー ー ー! It is! It is! It is! It is!
Why am I changing so much! It is! Is it?
And frustrating MAX! It is! It is! It is! It is!

Unlike the racer, if the car weight exceeds 200 kg, iron frame, production tire, wheel base and caster angle etc. If it says it is not drunk
In the first place such a race w

First go calmly into the pit
Explain the situation to the mechanics and pretend the course and take a course.

does not change. . .

Traveling is over.
Why is it – ー ー ー ー ー ー ー ー ー! It is! It is! It is! It is! It is!
And Konosu wearing a cold w w w

The teams around did not have any time at all, but that’s not the problem! It is! It is! It is! It is!

The last one really is the last.

Calm down,
Let’s put a new tire in Mr. Konosu! Alright, I received consent from Shibusibi. . .
Even if the tire we are using can run around 58 seconds (T_T)
With the set rotting fixed, it got talked about the set, and set it from the trend from Wednesday.

The second one
From the first lap 58 seconds!
I will really grip it w
After all the new tire is amazing w
I’m feeling awfully amateur while thinking like an amateur (^ ^) ♪
Proceed to the direction you were aiming for the set,
It became able to turn around in the middle of 58 seconds, if you think about the road surface
temperature and situation, it is botchi.
I wanted to change the spring rate if I wanted to say, but I should stop hauling before the finals So, it was settled to be able to target the record at first depending on the condition of the day.

The day of the final day

Our race will be the 2nd day of 2days.
Brought in at 5 am on the previous day!
Village, thank you for the spot (^ ^) ♪

Thanks to that, I put it in a little slowly, and these places are also good places that became 2 days (^ ^) ♪
We have supported our team from this time,
Dear Taiko Transport Co., Ltd.
Thanks to that I got a luxurious team suite too, team tents and pits were probably the most prominent (^ ^) ♪
Many people can come,
The atmosphere of the team is also good, the qualifying qualifying round, the tension MAX to the finals! It is!

For this day, I will prepare for the donkey, Mr. Konosu will make a machine, run by many people’s support, sponsors, many crews.
It straddles the machine while biting such a thing.
No matter how many times I will get nervous only this moment.

Ask the team to go out as No. 1 as ever and have them prepare perfectly
Course in first place on schedule
I check the condition of the road surface and start attack.
Course record only aims! It is! It is! It is! It is!
Put in a corner and enter the corner! It is! It is! It is! It is!

The grip is thin. . .
The rise does not progress as the motorcycle seems. . .
That’s right. Temperature on this day also exceeded 30 degrees, road temperature rose to over 50 degrees.
First in 58.8 seconds at the top of the bulletin board.
The moment I return to the pit and talk with Mr. Konosu to shake the set a little more
Mr. Matsuda announced the top emergence from the live performance.
58.575 seconds
5 minutes remaining time
I can attack it for 2 laps

Course in again,
First lap 58.7 seconds
Anyway cut down useless places, throw away what can be done
Although it was more than half-way uphearted, www

Checkered flag

As I went back to the pit and looked at the bulletin board,
Our bib number “71” was displayed at the top of the line (^ ^) ♪

When everyone gets back to the team with a smile, this moment is exhausted as a rider ♪
I can not forget the smile of Mr. Konosu w

As a result, I got a pole position of 58.552 seconds, but with Mr. Matsuda it is 2 / 100th
Power Builder Mr. Yamane was 3rd though he seemed to be having anxiety about the machine due to the fall of the previous day, but it definitely matches the final.
4th and 5th are new type H2R ……
It does not reach record, it is not a situation where there is room at all.

Our pit where many people came to come (^ ^) ♪
It was worthwhile to make sponsors and guests feel like hospitable, so we came to various people ♪, it became a very good atmosphere ♪
A lot of words of encouragement are received, motivation is the best tide! It is! It is! It is! It is!

There is no siting rap and goes to the grid with the team

There are photography etc., introduction of the team will start in the live situation.
I got a lot of encouragement, everyone came to see the grid,
Why are you doing the race for many years but I’m getting nervous w

Omnipresently pretends to be cool

1 minute before the start
I feel that something is not going well this time,
I am terribly uneasy whether I can run firmly or overturn.
I am not confident, I do not have enough grounds

engine start
I wonder why.
Why? Why? Tension and uneasiness flies as you hang the engine.

Warming up lap start
As usual the road surface temperature, there are some places where oil treatment is done, but there is no problem.

Return to the grid

Just concentrate on the start

Red signal lighting

I pray to Mr. Matsushita

StarOut! It is! It is! It is! It is!

The hit of the clutch is also not bad!
Good feeling!
But I came after all Yamane!
Utilizing power and taking in beautiful beautifully
You go to the hairpin as it is without going for deprivation from the out.
If you go earlier you can not pass easily
And 2 to push up to the hairpin but Mr. Yamane Kusufutsu will not hand over w

Back straight
Yeah yeah yeah yeah – san is fast! It is! It is! It is! It is!
I feel like I’m about three cars away. . .
But I have an advantage over the last corner.

I arrived at the back of the lap as perfect as 3 laps and as to where I should be able to go, I checked where I was going to be able to set in after I left.
Mr. Matsuda is also following the back.
The road surface temperature is also high, the grip is thin.

1 corner on the fourth lap
Mr. Yamane slightly over speeded, the emergence of a little empty place in the inward emergence top emergence.

I should be better for in courses! It is!
The problem is back straight.
I think I was stabbed with the final invasion as I thought
But I managed to get through some braking.
Push in the corner, but the tire is sagging and it is hard to bear.
However, there is no room to drop the pace to say anything. . .
Anyway a lot www

I will not be able to slip backstraight as I repeat laps
Advantage is about 1 second by checking backward with hairpin!
After all, everyone knows that the grips are together, we can afford a little feeling,
It is displayed that there is an advantage in the sign board from the pit, and it confirms 4 laps remaining lap.

I just use this strength machine w
Unlike super sports often rampage so it’s painful in the second half! It is!

Every time I see the outstanding shirt in the pit or the audience seat, I get the power and I feel that it is truly mentally supported.


Another round

To the last

I could concentrate anyway.

Checkered flag

I am just relieved, I’m happy
Also thank Mr. Matsushita for protecting me
