There is this dream, a fantasy of mine. It’s to drive a few laps in a N1 spec EF9 and N1 EG6 on both of these Loops. It would have to take place at that time and era of course; late 80’s-mid 90’s.
Macau Guia Circuit; if Loop 1 was converted into a professional circuit, this would be it! Just a thought, who’s to say that they have to stay on the highway loop if it was converted into a street circuit??
Such a crazy race! And to think, majority of the races held at Guia are like that!
Now let’s enter The Loop
Back in the days the k-zoku’s would cause mischief on the local streets, just before entering the highway for some havoc. Kanjozoku cars are nearly the same as N1 cars, more or less. Just with a big dose of ghetto-ness from the street! Even though the two loops are different, the driving style is still the same. ✌️
My life revolves around reminiscing. Lemme tell y’all bout one of the best runs I had.
This takes place around 2011-12ish. My prime Running days. I had just left Matt’s crib and was heading home. On the highway, I kept hearing a BOV. As I look over I see a first gen Ford Focus with a body kit. The driver was already making eye contact with me as the BOV was going off. I nodded my head and pointed over cuz there was mad traffic in front of me. He let me over and we both got into the slow lanes to the far right. I looked over and nodded my head and gave him a look like “are you ready?” Old boy nodded his head and we both went for it.
To put it into perspective the Ford Focus is the camera car and I’m the the dark gray Wharp EG in front of him. There were moments where the traffic cleared up and I gap him by big rig lengths.
Where the run ended is actually where I left off the gas to let him catch up. From there I cruised and waited for him cuz my exit was coming up. By the time he got next to me I rolled down my window and gave him a big thumbs up 👍. The driver turned on his interior light and was looking at me clapping his hands 👏 and gave me a thumbs up back 👍. I threw up the peace ✌️ sign back as I exited. That is one of my best runs I ever had. That’s how a run should be! I wonder if that driver still has that car? Maybe even boosted it more? If you reading this homie, Smoke some one for me! HAHA! ✌️
“Alone in the comforting darkness the creature waits. As confusion reigns on this hellish stage, the deafening grind of machinery, the odious clot of chemical waste. Still, the trail of his ultimate prey leads through this steely maze to these, the addled offspring of the modern world.”
Talk about one of the soundtracks to my life. Perfect Film Noir feel. It has a dark, lurking, prowling, sneaky, narcoleptic feel throughout the whole album. My kind of music.
Back in my home town, on nights where I couldn’t sleep for shit, I would hop in my car and roam around the streets in the dead of night. No one was on the road, the night belonged to me. I found my peace doing so. The track by Vangelis “Blade Runner Blues” would be playing while I drive. The song added so much affect to the world around me, it was as if the night was playing the music. I get the same feeling when I listen to “On Devil Wings.” Many times I would end up in downtown. The vast emptiness made my emotions rise to just keep driving, keep roaming the streets, as if I was trying to find where the roads began and where they end. I cut down alley ways staring up at the few brick buildings left in my city. The music stops. I could hear the city breathing. Almost whispering to me. “Dead End Angels” describes that feeling.
To fully grasp Bohren & der Club of Gore’s music, I advise listening to it at night.
