Feel the need for speed… I generally go to Suzuka Circuit for the 1000km SUPER GT races as well as the Coke-Cola Zero 8 Hours motorcycle race. I also shoot a lot of D1 GP at various locations around Aichi(CENTRAIR) and Tokyo(Odaiba). My work has featured motorsport racing for articles in SPOT-Report magazine.

About Process:

Coka-Cola ‘Zero’ Suzuka 8hrs – is held in July during the hot summer season in Japan, so track temperatures are usually high. The air temperatures reaching highs of 30-32°C resulted in track temperatures ranging from 38-56°C during the race. The qualifying sessions took place in searing heat as the thermometer soared to 35°C for the start of ‘Top 10’ teams at 4:00pm local time. The qualifying procedure is different for this race, since the order is decided on the times of each bike’s best-placed rider, and not on the average of the best times of all its riders. The fight for pole is then settled by Saturday’s ‘Top 10 Trial’ which will oppose the 10 fastest bikes after qualifying. During this event there are several activities/events to get a more enjoyable experience with the riders of this endurance race at Suzuka Circuit.

How I miss those late nights downing Red Bulls while working those long/late missions in the US Army. Or could be from those late nights yelling at the bartender for another round of Jager bombs. How about waking up at the crack of dawn for a sporting event or pushing of before the crack of dawn and breakfast consisted of a power bar and Red Bull.

Whatever the case I think most of us have experienced Red Bull at some point in our lives. Red Bull is such an awesome company and it has almost nothing to do with the taste or effects of their actual product. Red Bull is awesome because of its image. They embrace living it up in life and taking things to the edge. To go along with this image they have a series of ridiculous events they put on every year. There are 2 things to think about here…

1. The competitors in these events are living the dream! Who grows up and dreams of racing planes or flying down a mountain side on their bike as a career? These guys simply loved something and went after it!

2. Remember that being an entrepreneur requires long hours and tons of hustle, but you should be doing it for the lifestyle. Make some time to head out to these free events or enter some of them and make some memories!
