Motorsport Fan Thanks Day - Suzuka
« on: March 09, 2018, 02:59:56 PM »
Fisico has been spotted sitting in one of Nigel Mansell's old Ferraris in Japan. He is going to be doing a Ferrari day in Suzuka tomorrow.

Jean and Guiliano Alesi will also be present.

YouTube is live-streaming the thanks day (YouTube link). It seems they are also allowing people to watch on demand, because according to my time conversions, the track running should have finished today, but there's 4 hours of coverage on the link... From the schedule, it looks like Fisico's bit is likely to be 14:05-14:30 and/or 16:35-17:00 local time today (the earlier session will probably have him demonstrating the Kapersky GTE 488, and the latter in Nigel Mansell's F1 Ferrari), and 11:15 - 11:40 and/or 15:55-16:25 local time tomorrow (again, the Kapersky GT3 488 earlier and the Nigel Mansell F1 later).

Tomorrow's times translate to 2:15 am - 2:40 am and/or 6:55-7:25 am British time, or 4:15 - 4:40 am and/or 8:55-9:25 am Finnish time. We have missed yesterday's Fisico sessions because unfortunately I only found the timetable 10 minutes ago.

One other comment: the Thanks Day is part of the 30th anniversary celebrations for the Suzuka circuit.

Fisico has complimented the photos of him in Mansell's Ferrari 4T12 that were taken by local fan YUU300. He's also posted a short video of the large crowd in the main grandstand.

Here is the YouTube link for day 2's proceedings. I believe Fisico is due in 35 minutes. Also, yesterday's video now seems to have a full 9 hours and 35 minutes of video associated with it.

Please note: both today's and yesterday's video has the narrators speaking in Japanese, though I don't think Fisico will be speaking in Japanese unless he picked up another fluent language when I wasn't looking ';)

While we are waiting Fisico's appearance, here is a photo of the back of the car Fisico demonstrated by tatsuya, one of Fisico himself by Mieko, and another one of Fisico by すーぺるまりお@3/10鈴鹿ファン感. The latter message, by the way, translates to:
