It's the end of autumn and the weather is getting colder every day.
Around this time of the year you can see the leaves changing color all over Japan.
In Minamiboso City, where The Magarigawa Club is located, the beautiful autumn leaves will be seen from the end of November to the beginning of December, which is rather late for the Tokyo metropolitan area.
In this newsletter, we would like to report on the "MAGARIGAWA Virtual Drive with KAMUI in Umeda Gallery" held in Umeda, Osaka last month.
We invited Kamui Kobayashi, the racing driver who won the Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Endurance Championship for the first time this season, to drive on the simulator at The Magarigawa Club's driving course. The event was held over three days at the new CORNES Collection Umeda Gallery, which opened in Osaka this spring.
The exhibition included a special display of the Ferrari MONZA SP2 and a series of dioramas to give newcomers to the MAGARIGAWA track a complete view of the track.
The virtual drive car was a Lamborghini Huracán Performante with the MAGARIGAWA logo on the side.
The first few laps on the MAGARIGAWA track were a great way to get a feel for what the simulator can do.
This was followed by an hour-long session with Kamui Kobayashi demonstrating and leading the cars on one of Asia's most technical tracks.
We have released a new video on our website, which has a different feel to the previous videos.
I hope you enjoy.
