Classic Japan Rally 2019 YOKOHAMA Y160


From 1920's to 1950's the Mille Miglia which took place in Italy held an open road endurance race travelling 1600 kilometers.
From here, each European country, each with dignity devoted their time to create a state-of-the-art technology making automobile to make a faster car.
It has contribute to multifaceted improvement of modern industrial production technology and its benefits.

The automobile culture is a brilliant modern history, beginning from people in Europe.
At this modern days, automobile culture are carefully inherited and cherished to all generation.

After Japan has undergone a high growth period,
many Japanese ancestors were able to be part of automobile culture in Europe and many world's valuable classic cars were imported.
This valuable classic cars were well kept and cherished by the owners, mechanics and body shop specialists.

For Japan, the history of car culture is short, though we have always cherished our tradition, value and skills.
The cars produced more than 80 years ago are maintained in the same condition as the ordinary cars even in the long distance rally exceeding more than 1000 kilometers.
Condition and environment has been made for good maintenance to have classic cars run as equally like general cars.

Though in modern days (to repair) is getting much more difficult taking over technical skills.
Like historical buildings, there is no doubt that classic cars are also a historic cultural heritage as well.

Passing on to the children of next generation, let them feel and experience the sound of classic car engine.
By being able to experience, we hope they will be interested in admiring classic cars and respect the "technician" who supported Japan.

We would like to build up and continue this classic car culture with local government,
Rotary Club and many friends who loves classic cars.
