I’m still pinching myself. This is real life and the Pagani Raduno Touge Drive did really happen. When a dozen or so Paganis from all around the world gather to go on one massive road trip across Japan, it was an opportunity I had to jump at.
The rally would take the cars around Tokyo’s highways at night, giving the owners an experience of the colourful nightlife that is Japan’s car culture. A breathtaking autumn drive through Nikko, Tochigi. A blast up and down the infamous Hakone Turnpike on what felt like the foggiest day in history. The drive wrapped up at Fuji Speedway for a day of trackside fun.
This whole event was easily one of the best motoring-related events I’ve ever been to. In fact, it’s probably one of the best things I’ve ever done. The cars, the scenery, and the people were all incredible and made for some life-long memories. Thanks to everyone who made it possible.
Now here’s a bite-sized video of some of the best bits from the first (and hopefully not last) Pagani Raduno in Japan.
