If you read my last post, you’ll remember that I signed off with me climbing the stairs to Yellow Hat’s roof having just been blown away by the selection of Liberty Walk cars parked up. I’d already had my expectations for the night completely shattered and it’d only just begun, so you can imagine how I felt when I exited the staircase and found Kenki Takayama’s D1GP Lexus GS350 staring back at me.
After years of daydreaming, wishing and then subsequently failing to ever put any plans in place, just under three weeks ago I stepped off a plane at Tokyo Narita airport and finally set about the trip to Japan that I’d never previously been able to make a reality.

It’s all well and good paying someone else to build an engine for you…but then you wouldn’t have the satisfaction of dropping in all those shiny forged parts that you’d spent every last penny that you own on. If you’re going to live on nothing but bread, pasta and Pot Noodles for a month, you might as well get something out of it.
