F1 Car at Toyota Factory Tour

Day 9 Post
Note: This is from a series of trip reports from my January 2010 Tokyo Trip. They are random musings about whatever seems interesting for that day.

On Day 9 I went on the Toyota Factory Tour. Prior to the tour I went through the museum and found that they are still displaying last year’s F1 car even though Toyota has exited the series. I found it interesting that they let me shoot the rear diffuser so closely. I was guessing that it might be obliterated or obfuscated but I guess there is no more need to keep this stuff secret anymore. I also included an impressive shot of an F1 steering wheel.
