1/8 On Road Japan style **Updated Nr.3**

The Japanese r/c culture always fascinates me with the attention to detail the racers apply on their their beautifully styled chassis and bodies.

Here are some photos and a videos from recent races as well as the 2012 JMRCA All Japan National championship held at the great 'Kei Tune' circuit which according to the latest information I have received will be the hosting club for the 2013 IFMAR 1/8 On Road World Championships.
Initial information I had received was that hosting club would be another very famous circuit, BOSS SPEED.

This shows all the drama of the race. These are the dying moments of the event and the start of the video picks up a great battle between Shimo and Fukuda just before Fukuda's last refueling pit stop (1:27 mark)  with approximately 4 minutes to go. Shimo is stretching his runtime beyond 5 minutes and near the end of the race still holds the lead but with a fast charging Fukuda a few car lengths behind.
In the end all is lost on the very last lap when he flames out, most likely out of fuel.
