Idlers 12 hours of Motegi with RWB - Part 1

Last July I attended the Idlers 12 hours of Motegi with team RWB. We traveled through the night before the event from the RWB HQ in Chiba to the Twin Ring Motegi circuit in Tochigi. I took these shots at a gas station on the way. The seven noisy RWB race cars showing up in the dead of night along with an army of RWB race drivers, crew members and photographers from around the world certainly brought the sleepy service area to life.

As you can see, the cars are all road registered and were driven to the event on public roads; no flatbeds, no trucks. It was a good chance to check the cars were all running smoothly. I actually traveled with RWB regular Alex Kyo in one of Nakai-San’s 993s. It was a real thrill to be a part of that journey, travelling in convoy, in the dead of night, on a Japanese highway with so many incredible cars.

I have a huge collection of photos from this event. It was an amazing experience and definitely a highlight since I started Rapid Japan. Part 2 coming soon.

The candy = the ring

I have an idea about the whole candy/ring think… I know that the full (and translated) chapter still has to be out, but it is almost sure that we are talking about the ring that Ciel (real!Ciel)  had swallowed during the month in the Cult. Now, I think that the use of the word “candy” for “ring” is a powerful hint, something unmistakable, in fact ,our!Ciel was beyond shock. I believe that in order to swallow the ring (which we know, it is not a little solitaire but a big ring), Ciel had to pretend it was something else (you know, something like “Ok, I can’t swallow this enormous thing” *because after all he was a ten-year-old child and his throat wasn’t the throat of an adult*) so perhaps he pretended that the ring was a candy (something like: “Look *insert-our!Ciel’s-name*, I eat this like it is a candy!”), and also, considering how much our!Ciel (and perhaps his twin) likes sweets, the choice of the candy is plausible. That is why the word “candy” was so shocking, because for our!Ciel it is the unbelievable but also unmistakable evidence that his brother is back… hence Sebastian’s reaction “I do not tell lies”… what if he asked him “You lied because he should be dead, according to the words you said at the time of our contract”. Because I think that Sebastian really ate real!Ciel’s soul (and that would open a scenario like real!Ciel wanting his soul back, being a BD) but considering that they still don’t know the truth behind real!Ciel’s “recovery” (John Brown? UT?), it is very natural for our!Ciel to accuse Sebastian (also, this could lead our!Ciel to temporarily act alone, perhaps because he is enraged at Sebastian, and going to confront his brother alone). Also, the word “tummy”… I am not English native speaker, so I am using Word Reference to read the shades of meaning and tummy is an endearment for “stomach”, and it sounds so much like a word used by children (same thing as candy, perhaps when the twins were children, they used or heard the word). I think the choice is very specific because saying “Who stole the ring from my stomach” would have been more predictable, but saying “Who stole the candy from my tummy” is more personal. Also, I don’t think that Sebastian was so tactful in taking the ring…

“There will be other lives.” Jem held his hand out, and for a moment, they clasped hands, reaching across twin rings of fire to interlace their fingers with each other. “The world is a wheel,” he said. “When we rise or fall, we do it together.”

If there is a life after this one,” he said, “let me meet you in it, James Carstairs.”

“There will be other lives.” Jem held his hand out, and for a moment, they clasped hands, as they had done during their parabatai ritual, reaching across twin rings of fire to interlace their fingers with each other. “The world is a wheel,” he said. “When we rise or fall, we do it together.”
