ERK Dual Gymkhana:
War of tournament of gymkhana by handmade electric racing car (ERK). Two courses are set up to back in the homestretch of the circuit and dual gymkhana is done. ERK is maximum speed 120 km/h. 0-200m acceleration has the ability of ten seconds. Dual gymkhana of power not to understand which reaches a goal early to the last minute.
ERK did dual gymkhana. It divides from the center the main straight in the Tsukuba circuit right and left, it starts, it returns to the center, and it reaches a goal. The other party descends dual here though usual gymkhana is a competition at time, and previously reaching a goal wins. It divides into a basic ERK1 class and the ERK2 class of the high-power, and, first of all, six each team trials. The team with a lot of numbers of victories can advance to the tournament. It seems to have been a pie Ron secret because it became a defeat if touching that not making a mistake won though it was thought as the point of the match how many accelerators were possible to be stepped there very scary to start aiming at the wall of the pit lane that had adhered Braccmarc.

The demonstration running of eight crossing (character of eight) was done at the time immediately before the championship of the velocity by two ZEK-02 that was ERK at the velocity. This ZEK-02 is a wagon that has power very much equipped with the nickel metal-hydride battery. Especially, a blue specification has power too much if it is not a racing driver and is not touched. It runs through from the final corner in a straight home by opening completely after it dances (chase?), and the tension to the velocity championship has been improved to the character of eight with two at a dash.
