KANSEI Interview: Touge King

Posted in Interview on September 21, 2007 by Team KANSEI

We’ve gradually expanding KANSEI weblog style in additions with a few interview session (planned for coming future) that we found to be very much interesting to share with our fellow readers in here. We’ve planned to make KANSEI interview on a monthly basis with different selected drivers worldwide that we think should brings benefit to all of you guys out there.

No matter what level we all fall in. Either we are all beginner or already reach the ‘God Foot and Hands’ title (or even if you think you are real life Takumi), we at KANSEI think we could always learn something from other people experience as well as our very own. As we’ve posted on our earlier post, we’re not here to find any rival but we’re looking for a friendship that should last long and this is one of our way to share with all of you our friendship ethics and love towards what we all called ‘touge’….

Our first interview here featured Malaysian local with talent and skill to watch over. The one that we salute and respect. The one who’d prefered half grip and half drift kind of driving and he came with several experiences and stories on touges and race track as well. Hailing all the way from Cameron, Perak… We Present you ‘An Interview With Touge King’! Enjoy reading!

In Loving Memory: Colin McRae

Posted in Condolences, Miscellaneous, Rally, Videos on September 17, 2007 by Team KANSEI

People come and go. Only that we never knew when and how it will end. So it goes to one of this legendary Rally driver which we respect in terms of driving styles and technique. Our heartfelt and condolences goes to him and his family. Colin McRae, a name that should be remembered for several time to come. Some of us get lots of inspiration in watching his videos before they could copy and tried to apply it on local touges. And we honestly at KANSEI never found Ford Focus to be very seducing until we saw McRea rock it hard. That’s how much impact he’s been giving to us and we wanted to share our feeling towards the lost to one of the worlds greatest Rally drivers who has a huge racing spirits lies in his family blood and dynasty.

Colin McRae died in a Helicopter crashed 1 mile north of Lanark, Scotland on 15 September 2007, which is close to the McRae family home. Police confirmed the next day that McRae, his five year old son Johnny, and two family friends, Graeme Duncan and Johnny’s six year old friend Ben Porcelli, died in the crash. McRae’s website, ColinMcRae.com, was replaced with a memorial screen stating a few details about the crash, and later too with a short statement released on behalf of McRae’s father; Jimmy.

Here, we’ve posted some of the videos of him… Driving.
