Wekfest Japan 2015 Official Pre-Meet Coverage…

As many of you know, the annual Wekfest Japan event is coming up in a few short months and the official Pre-Meet took place recently in Osaka, Japan. Normally, the official Pre-Meet takes place the day before the actual event happens but apparently, the Japanese just like to do things differently. There were some familiar faces there as usual but the rain came down pretty hard, making it difficult to cover the event. Still, my boy Yasu Shimomukai came through once again and was able to capture some of the cars present at the meet. It is a pretty short update compared to most that you’re used to here on the site but still good nonetheless. Enjoy and thanks for looking! Wekfest Japan takes place on May 3rd, 2015 at Port Messe in Nagoya, Japan. I can’t wait!….

I don’t know how Tomoyuki Sasaki keeps his Civic so clean being that he drives this thing anywhere in any type of weather. It was looking great at the WFJP Pre-Meet and I believe he has some new surprises for the official Wekfest event in two months…

This Spoon Sports-inspired EK is perhaps one of the closest replicas to the actual Spoon EK, minus the aggressive Work Meister CR-01 wheels of course. More interesting to note is that this replica actually has Spoon Sports side mirrors and the real Spoon EK doesn’t even have them, haha….
