Top Fuel S2000 Breaks new FR record

Yesterday (15-02) there was another Time Attack session at the Tsukuba Circuit hosted by Revspeed. The Top Fuel/Zero-1000 S2000 competed there and broke a new FR record with a time of 0:55:350.

This is the worlds fastest time for an FR car on the Tsukuba Cicruit. Just when you think it doesn’t get any faster there’s always a Tuner that beats the old record and spices things up. I wonder what ASM has in store……

Thanks to Ben Linney at GTC-R.

Tsukuba Circuit

Everybody that loves Japanese cars and especially tuned Japanese cars knows the Tsukuba Circuit. The circuit is being used every weekend for different kind of events. The most popular events are the Time Attack and open race days.

The fastest car on Tsukuba is the HKS CT230R with a time 0:53:58 driven by Nobuteru Taniguchi. This car has a OEM frame but the rest of the car is made completely out of carbon.

What most people don’t know is that Tsukuba consists of 3 circuits, one called the TC2000 (2070m) and the other TC1000 (1039m). The third track is an oval. The TC2000 track is featured in numerous race games like Gran Turismo and Enthusia. The track is also being used in video’s like Best Motoring and the Hot Version video’s.

If you go to Japan, make sure you pay a visit to the circuit because you will see some of the hottest Japanese cars out there tearing up the track.

A nice view of the track can be seen here on Google Earth.

ASM Tsukuba Special S2000

A viewer of my blog asked me if I could post some more info about the ASM Time Attack S2000. He also asked if I had some under carriage pictures. Too bad I do not have those

I will start with explaining what ASM is. ASM is a tuning brand that is being marketed by Autobacs Yokohama. ASM is specialised in making parts for the S2000 and BMW. Their award winning S2000 you see in the pictures uses a Toda build 2.4 liter engine. In the latest Time Attack held by Revspeed on the Tsukuba track it recorded a time of 0:57:422. Remember that the car is NA, it finished seven overal.

The bodykit is made out of carbon to keep the weight down

Here you see Fly taking pictures of the car. Fly is a famous free lance photographer, I met him once during the D1GP in the UK on Silverstone.
