find one for Suzuka, it's the only track I think of where a driver is going both clock wise and counter clock wise on the same lap.

Not to rub it in, but there are only 4 weeks to go until my next trip

Will try to get as many pictures as I can and I am just trying to work out a covert camera system to take some video. No filming is allowed.

I drive the track all the time on GT4 for Playstation 2. I probably have about 200 laps on it. It is my dream to drive it in real life. In the meantime, the virtual version gives a great sense of why this is arguably the greatest road course in the world. I also figure when I do get there I'll have some familiarity with the many, many turns.

Wow, that boxster really does sound awesome! His comments say that it is stock, with stock exhaust... do they all really sound like that?
