Some quick snaps from a recent visit to AAI Motorsports HQ in Taipei. Was great to have Joe explain some of the tech behind the Honda race cars, and also a nostalgic blast to be able to get in and out of some of the old school race cars. Their $20k simulator was impressive as well!


Joe from AAI picked us up and drove us out to visit AAI HQ.


The car we were driven in.


Mugen CRZ in progress.


This MKII Golf staff car blew my socks off.


It’s even got Buddy club seats in it.


More AAI staff cars.


AAI.


The first thing that greets you, this amazing Le Mans racer.


So wide so low.


Tom’s Racing Corona (?) race car.


The boss’ new hobby to keep him fit.


Buell.


This chaser was awesome.


Inside.


Got intake?


Trophies EVERYWHERE.


A new project they’re working on. Automatic only though for Taiwan, if you want the manual you’ll have to buy the Subaru.


Some Buddy club Honda race cars.


Massive money spent on this FD.


One in you can’t get out. Nuts!


Race cars lying around everywhere you looked.


Even this now neglected EG up high on the mezzanine.


And this fantastic EK.


AII HQ even has it’s own bar.


Staff bike. Ti frame with old school Campy friction gear on it.


Their $20 simulator was crazy and makes our Forza simulator at Zen look piss weak.


Joe then took us out for some traditional Hakka food.


So so good. Hearty and earthy.


All traffic lights have hook turns for scooters (which dominate traffic) and a countdown to green too (wish we had that!).
