Meeting in Japan with Porsche 911 GT3

Porsche Boxster Spider

Porsche GT3 Touring Day 2

The next morning, as soon as we had breakfast, everyone silently packed their luggage toward their car and prepared for touring. Every time one engine is lit, an exhaust note echoes in the hot spring town at an altitude of 1800m.

The temperature, which was about 9 degrees below freezing before sunrise, has risen to 3-4 degrees.doing. Everyone warms the engine, body, and tires at a slow pace in the morning. We stopped the car near the parking lot of Ciao Ontake and enjoyed taking a commemorative photo with everyone and exchanging cars to get on.

And hereMr. wata is about to leave for grand touring, so farewellIt is. With a vivid shift change as usual, Boxster in sapphire blue was sucked into the mountains of Kiso.

From here, head toward Mt. Ontake from Tamataki Village via K20 and K256. The K256 is a two-lane winding along the river, but there is little traffic and you can fly at your own pace. When the tires and engine are warm, the pace of each car will increase.

GT3 is also set to sports mode, auto blipping is enabled, and the engine is actively rotated. Although,After all, if there is 500PS, there is almost no need to use 2nd gear in tight winding.I can run with a margin at almost 3rd speed.

Drive with Porsche

At the entrance to Mt. OntakeIt was said that there was a road bike hill climb race on that day, and the road was blocked.It had been done. Unfortunately, it can't be helped. Each car makes a U-turn and returns to the original road.

Everyone's pace is even faster, probably because of the frustration of not being able to climb Mt. Ontake. I put a whip in the GT3 that follows from the tail and ran through Kisoji following the seven cars running fast in front.

I chewed the soft serve ice cream from Kaida Kogen Ice Cream Studio, which is often mentioned on wata's blog, and I have a job the next day, so I say goodbye to everyone. I thanked him and went home hoping to see him again next year.

Touring with Porsche

Speaking of touring that seems to be touring in GT3,Shikoku at the time of break-in, Hachikita, Awaji, Koya Ryujin, only the Kansai areawas. And the last time I went to Koya-Ryujin, there were too many tourist cars, and the image of touring that just slowly ran GT3 like a trolley train remained, somehow.I had the image that touring in GT3 = tired.It is.

However, this time, I went through Kansai to the Hokuriku-Chubu region and thought, "GT3 is a car that can go touring at all"I'm saying that. Of course, it makes me think so because there were many free-running roads with little traffic, but in such a situationGT3 is really the bestwas. That was very fun. It was fun, I didn't mind the dust such as the hardness of my legs, and only the comfortable tiredness remained.

And above allThe road to run with genuine car lovers, no driving lovers like watas was the bestAnd the pace of running was great.

Thank you for the wonderful encounter. Thank you to everyone who took care of us during this touring!

    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!

  3. wata

    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!
