idlers Games Sprint Series -Tsukuba Circuit, Japan

Weekend warrior paradise, grassroots JDM style

Oct 16, 2014

The idlers Games is easily becoming one of the biggest grassroots events in Japan; we just had to give you a taste of what we're missing here in the States! Think of it as a big melting pot of weekend racers—from Japanese classics to Silvias, WRXs, Euros and more. Drivers are divided up into different run groups based on their driving skill level and type of vehicle. But one thing is for sure... everyone is there for the same reason and to do what they love most—drive. There's no hostility or intense pressure to set lap records; no major racing organizations or tough regulations involved. It's simply a haven for weekend warriors—guys like you and me who might have a project car we've been building up to rip around the track.

This RWB 993 named Rauh Passion pushes 300hp and features StopTech brakes, SSR wheels and 335-Series tires out back!

This particular round took place at Tsukuba Circuit. The 2-kilometer course is definitely more technical, with its longest straight being just above a quarter-mile long. That equals the playing field for most cars—chassis tuning and driver skill are more important than power. The idlers Games continues to grow in popularity and sheer awesomeness. You can bet we'll have more in-depth coverage of this event in years to come!

The backdrop is unique, the atmosphere is always friendly, and the cars aren't solely based on extreme stance like you might assume.
