Meeting in Japan with Porsche 911 GT3

Porsche Boxster Spider

Touring in the autumn leaves with GT3

Head south on R41 toward Takayama. Enjoy a very comfortable freeway such as R471 and K75. While taking a suspicious action of going back and forth on the same road twice or three times, we took a break at Sky Dome Kamioka, a roadside station famous for Kamiokande.After all, the ease of running is different from the road in Kansai.The GT3 that I usually have left over in Ashi is alive.

Have lunch and get in touch with the Kanto group who are planning to join. I went south on K98 and they said they were going north on K98, so I decided to join them along the way.

K98 is also a wonderful road, especially now the autumn leaves are beautiful. On the way, I took a photo on the shores of Lake Araragi. The wonderful autumn leaves and the lake are beautiful. I waited for the Kanto group for a while, but noticed that the radio wave of the mobile phone was out of range, so I decided to return to the place where the mobile phone could enter.

Porsche 911 GT3 Touring Package

When I was waiting at the confluence to K455, I heard a roaring sound from a distance. I cameRUF Rt12, ALPINA B3 3.3, ALPINA B3 GT3, AUDI S1, 981 Spider, and that blue wata's BoxsterIt is. The sapphire blue that I actually saw was very well colored and was conspicuous.

I decided to go to a place where the car could easily park, so I asked everyone to say hello again at Hidaasahimura Road Station. "By the way, I wonder if Shima, an ALPINA roadster who often appears on wata's blog, is here this time. ??I was really surprised that I bought a new 981 spider from ALPINA and participated.

Moreover, it is unusually cool with a spider that is all black.

From there, aim for Nigorigo Onsen at an altitude of 1800m. Advance the car from R361 to K435. From here, a hill climb with 7 cars will start. After all, they are people who love driving and cars.The pace is good and everyone is very good at driving.

I chased the butt of ALPINA B3 3.3 running in front, but it was quite a pace. I have never owned ALPINA,Looking at the behavior seen from behind and how the corners turn, it is still not a regular box car.

Arrived at the inn when the surroundings began to fade and darken. I went into the famous open-air bath, but it was just right for me, who is not good at hot springs, and it feels very good. This is the temperature at which you can stay in for a long time.

Supper after the bath. Two people from Kansai join here. It's nostalgic that I think that cooking with a large number of people at an inn hasn't happened since the club training camp when I was a student.The food here is quite voluminous and delicious.In the first place, the ingredients are good and the seasoning is good, so I felt that the ingredients and taste were well balanced.

NaturallyFrom dinner to just before going to bed, about 90% talk about carsIt is. I can often talk with just the story of the car like this, and while I was interested in myself, the nights of the old men indulged.

    I always see you happily.
    Thank you for playing with your husband the other day.
    Even with the same GT3, the 911 GT3 was well organized and very cool.
    We look forward to working with you on this occasion.

      Mr. M
      Thank you for always seeing the blog!

      > Thank you for playing with your husband the other day.
      Oh! Thank you very much for your husband's help.
      He said it was a lot of fun, and I was very impressed with everyone's driving and road selection.
      Thank you for your continued support.

    Hello Mina,

    My husband seemed to have fun, and above all.

    In the photo, the captions of B3 3.3 and B3 GT3 are different (^^;

    This B3 3.3 is a car that has a slightly lower vehicle height by exchanging the undercarriage, which is said to be an act (?) In Alpina, with an external product, so I think that it is a car that is swinging more than a normal B3. ..

    GT3 has a small amount of oil.
    Our GT4 needs as much oil as the 911, so a dealer probably costs the same (> _ <)
    I have various tools, so I plan to replace them myself.

    • MinaMina

      Thank you very much.
      Thank you for pointing out Albina, we have changed it!

      GT4 has more oil, isn't it expensive to change oil at the dealer?
      You also have your own tools, which is amazing!

    Hello Mina,

    This time, I left early on the second day, so I could run with him only a little, but Hiro-san was still very friendly and enjoyable.
    Please say thank you very much.
    We would like you to take on the challenge of the canceled Mt. Ontake Hill Climb, so please come with two people and two cars, and Mina will also run Boxster GTS with Hiro!
    I love driving cars, but I'm not a human being called a "master" at all, I'm not good at driving, and I can't drive fast.
    By meeting Hiro-san this time, I hope you understand that I am just a tired middle-aged office worker, so please be aware of that (Fushi).

    • MinaMina

      Thank you for your kindness.
      My husband said that he could not stay even if wata was in the middle or stood up and went to grand touring.
      I was praised very much, "As expected! As expected !!", so it seems that wata's mastery level has further increased among her husbands with this touring (laugh)

      I definitely want to run Mt. Ontake ...!
      I managed to operate the MT, but when I go, I'm sure it will be heavy rain and heavy fog ... so I'd like to correct it from my daily routine (laughs)!
      I look forward to seeing wata's blog in the future, thank you for your continued support ^^

    Mina Good evening.

    We would like to thank our husband for responding to our request. Thank you very much.
    No, it conveys a fun atmosphere.
    Mr. wata is naturally humble, but everyone is fast and good at it. Well, if you look at the car
    Of course, of course ...
    I think that I will continue to read fun blogs.

    • MinaMina

      Thank you very much!
      And thank you for reading the touring article.

      As you said, my husband said, "Everyone was fast and amazing!"
      We will continue to update the blog at our own pace.
      Thank you for your continued support ^^

    Nice to meet you, Mina.

    I've been with Hiro for two days.

    When I met him in advance at Ashi, I heard that he was planning to participate in the touring package, so I also chose the coupe body.

    It seems that you enjoyed it. Please tell us that we will do our best together in open sports or 964 this time.

    I will contact you when I go on an expedition to that area, so please make use of the experience of delivering two cars a day and Mina also rush with two people by MT (laugh)
    The phrase "change boxster switch on!" Connects (laughs)

    • MinaMina

      Nice to meet you, thank you very much for your husband's help the other day.
      He told me that it was a lot of fun, and I'm glad you invited me ^^

      > Please tell us that we will do our best together in open sports or 964 this time.
      Yes! I'll let them know!
      And when I come here, I will also rush with Boxster (laugh)!
      Thank you for your continued support!

  6. Shima

    Nice to meet you. It is Shima that appears occasionally in wata's blog. This time, Hiro's participation made the touring even more enjoyable. I will also change the box, and I would like to enjoy a new road music as a beginner of Mr. P from this touring. Please tell us about the Ascension Highway. Lol

    • MinaMina

      Nice to meet you, I have seen Shima's name many times on wata's blog!
      Thank you very much for participating in the touring this time.
      What's more, it's too cool to appear in Boxster Spider on the day ...!
      I hope that you will continue to get along with us this time. We look forward to working with you in the future.

  7. mtm

    Nice to meet you, Mina!
    This year my friend introduced me to my husband.
    I am riding the same 981 GTS 6MT.
    I also own Alpina B3, and I have been associated with wata for 10 years.
    I happened to find out on Mina's blog that her husband was very longing for Wata, so I invited her this time.
    I'm really happy to have you pleased.
    I look forward to working with you next year!
    It was a lot of fun.
    I'm in Osaka, so I'd be happy if I could meet you someday.

    • MinaMina

      Thank you for your continued support of my husband.
      I have heard from my husband about mtm, and thank you very much for inviting me to touring with wata.
      My husband's dream for many years came true (laughs), and I was really happy.
      We look forward to working with you next year.

      I wonder if I can go to Ashi from next spring, so
      We look forward to seeing you!
