After finding an article this evening, thought I would share this with the rest of you.

So, apparently there is an EVA Racing team that this has existed since 2012. I saw an article from Kotaku pointed it out to me. It's actually kinda cool after I clicked through to their twitter and then their site and started reading the (horrible and choppy) Google translations. It's actually kind of cool that they have an entire racing team with cars (and motorcycles too) painted up like Unit-01 and Unit-02, I mean, they're not winning races, but it would still be cool to see them race around.

And they don't just do race stuff, but they also try and answer the question this fandom has argued over forever, they have girls complete to see who is the race queen best girl each year.

Just curious what everyone else thinks about this. If I could, I'd definitely go watch.

The car team races in the Suzuka 10h and Fuji 24h, and those are actually high profile races for the GT class. It's no small feat, even if they aren't a top team.

There's an Eva Racing book, too! It mainly focuses on photos of the race queens from the 2012 team, but there are also a few pics of the cars and motorcycles, plus Unit-01 and Unit-02. Oh, and the book comes with a DVD as well. I reviewed the book here: http://literaryeagle.tumblr.com/post/115384215994/for-my-twenty-third-evangelion-book-review-here

Well, it would be silly to have a book about the racing team's race queens best girls and not slip in a few pictures of the cars by mistake :lol:
