Meeting in Japan with Porsche 911 GT3
Release date: 2020.11.20
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.
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.
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!
