I wanna see the butt race from last year! :P

Butt racing is an animated gif of people sitting on the ground, pretending to be drifting and racing. It can also include a Initial D eurobeat song, like Space Boy or Speedy Speed Boy (my favorite songs to race to).

GNYAAAAHHH! It's ALL about Bazooka Pistolero, Suck A Bazooka, and/or ANYTHING from HI-NRG Attack. As great as A-Beat-C is, they seldom ever top a good 'ol Franz Tornado hit.

At any rate, I'd be all for a buttrace on friday.

We'll need some racing queens, too, or whatever you call 'em; those models who hold a sign in front of the driver. XD

*prepare to cover your eyes people*
This is what a fake "Race Queen" looks like. :wink:
A bit of info:
A race queen is a promotional model. Their outfits (usually bright and revealing) almost always have the company logo/product name that is being advertised. They're quite often found at motor sporting events (hence the name). Basically a Race Queen is a walking billboard. That may sound kinda bad but in Japan, race queens have a much higher profile then say a "booth girl" in the USA.

We will meet near Stage Zero at around 4:30. Most of you know what I look like, so spotting me would be no problem. Actually, I might hold up a piece of paper that says Fanime 2007 Butt Racing Grand Prix MEET HERE or something.
