that shows how often Macau races restart due to crashes. Average race at Macau is bout 45 mins. This one is over an hour due to restarting. Amazingly, no one was injured in all those crashes.
Fun fact about these Civic races at Macau is that these cars were filled up with the highest octane available at regular petrol stations prior entering the race, which is tested and documented once the team checks in to the event. Teams must be possible to take 3 litres of fuel at any time during the event. The controlled fuel will be made available by the Organizer. Only the controlled fuel as supplied by the Organizer may be used throughout the Event. The fuel will be unleaded fuel of the commercial petrol which comes from a service station pump. The specification of the fuel will be notified to the competitors by Bulletin before the start of the Event. 🤯 Any alteration to the specification of the controlled fuel as supplied by the Organizer will result in exclusion from the Event.
Very cool video. I’m glad the people who made it are very honest; They didn’t know anything about the culture. And indeed the ones that ran in the streets are the younger generation of kanjozoku. However, one veteran appears in the Silver EG #128 (the car is a veteran at least). Humble lads, keep up the good work. 👍✌️
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. ✌️
This one isn’t as “friendly” as my last story, but indeed it was a good run. This takes place some time after 4/24/2012, cuz that was the date I dyno’d my car. I remember as soon as I pulled off the dyno I went to test it out. My first victim was a first gen Porsche Boxster, then a third gen 7 series BMW that was stupid loud. I was and still am very content with the power I have from the tune, and there’s plenty room for more power (I made that power on a JDM ITR header with ITR piping to a del Sol muffler! 🤯). There’s nights where I would rock the PVT exhaust for better flow, but that’s on late empty nights. I was on my “stock” set up this day. I had no intentions of running. But it just so happens that people see a cute lil red EG and want to fuck with it.
I was coming from Tougel’s crib going home. The junction from I5 south to 99/50 has a nice left sweeper turn which I go balls out on every time I hit it. Before the junction this Charger was tailgating me. Whenever this happens I just go slower and make them go around, mind you, I’m already in the slow lane. I don’t go slow in the faster lanes. This fool speeds past and I happen to look over, he’s smirking at me like I’m afraid, so I chase him. I’m keeping up and then the junction comes, this guy rides the brakes; he’s that type of driver. The turn is two lanes, I take him from the outside and exit the turn at full blast. Before all of this, when he sped by me I heard that it’s a V8. So I made sure that after I took him on the turn I was balls to the walls, cuz after that junction it’s a straight shot.
After I blasted out, I was redlining every gear from there; hitting rev limiter. I wanted to make sure that the V8 didn’t catch up. I’m not the type that “smokes a V8 like I smoke marijuana” I am well aware how powerful those engines are (before Honda’s I was into low riders. A Caprice Classic was almost my first car!). Once I made it onto the straight, I see him in the rear view hauling ass! This is where the run takes place.
From there I stopped looking at my mirror and focus on the road (of course!). We ran it to where the pin in dropped in the image above. He never caught up to me. He ended up getting all the way over to the right lane to either go on the 99 South or Business 80. We both disappear. But that’s not the end. It’s as if another car saw the action and since the Charger already left I was his target. It was an older BMW, perhaps a 3 series from the late 80’s (I only saw it from the side). This dude can drive! And there was surprisingly a lot of cars on the road still. I had to perform some straight up kanjozoku shit, and dip into the emergency lane/“parking” at one point. I can’t post pictures of where I did it, but if I got caught in traffic he would of smoked my ass!
The Hwy runs through an underpass. CHP hides under there sometimes and lucky they weren’t there. So I used that as a sort of “gutter technique” to zip around the pack of cars that was blocking us. And that’s where I left his ass, hitting rev limiter again in every gear. Talk about an adrenaline rush. If you’re a Runner at heart, you know how to use traffic to your advantage, and no one is immune to that. Not even me. I ended up exiting after I lost him and took the back roads home, I was super paranoid cuz this was around 9pm-ish on a weekday! There were still a lot of cars on the road! Perfect opportunity for the law to get someone.
I’m glad I don’t do shit like that anymore. I have a lot to lose. I’m glad I can sit here and tell my stories. I never “picked fights” on the road, when ever I ran against someone it’s because they chose to fuck with me, and that only happened a few times. Remember us PVT RUNNERS don’t care about winning or losing. Matter of fact, most of the time when me and Tougel ran our loop, we weren’t running against anyone. We would pretty much play Hwy tag and/or test our abilities. I only ran against a few people on the Hwy. We are not street racers. Though, it is one of my favorite Motorsports. ✌️
