Coverage: The Syndicate Goes To R's Meetings 2017

Sunday September 10th, 2017, 6:30am. The alarms on our cell phone blared some of the most annoying sounds ever to come out of their speakers. The time had come for us to embark on the long awaited journey to Fuji International Speedway. In a matter of minutes, we all got ready and walked over to Nippon Rent-A-Car to pick up our van. A Toyota Alphard to be exact (pimpin'!!!)...

After a walkthrough of the car's condition and signing of rental agreements, we drove onto the expressway and began the 90-minute journey from Tokyo to Fuji. Exhausted from the activities of the night before, we were all pretty calm during the beginning of the ride. But as the sighting of fellow GT-R owners began, we summoned the enthusiasm for the day that was ahead of us.

For some of us, it was our first time at Rs Meeting. For the rest, it was exciting to see what GT-R Magazine was going to present to better the R's Meetings of years past. In either circumstance, we knew it was going to be an amazing day.

You know you're at the right event when the roads are filled with GT-R's. Pulling into Fuji International Speedway, we queued with the unmistakable sound of modified RB engines. After paying the gate fee, we made our way to parking lot. Arriving early, we parked the giant Alphard at one of the prime parking lots and began setting up camera gear and the Skyline Syndicate merchandise that we would be giving away.

The following pictures are just a small sample of what's to come. Actually, they're pictures of a quick walk around one of the parking lots surrounding the venue. Check back in a couple of days for coverage of the show area of R's Meeting 2017. You won't want to miss it...
