I thought I'd post this here. [url]http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-04-14/evangelion-sponsors-super-gt300-car-racing-team[/url] I don't know what to think.

Well, the driver will be picked randomly from the crowd before each race and told that only they can drive the car to victory.

And the car will keep going out of the drivers controll and driving by itself, brutally smashing into any other cars in the way.

...and after winning (demolition derby style by destroying all competition) the car will regenerate itself with the driver still trapped inside... Further scarring the random 14 year old.

Evangelion =/= Transformer.

WTF is this shit?

Also, this needs to happen in Nascar so I can root for the Eva-01 car when I go down to see the races in Carolina.

Hey, Panasonic makes the HD cameras I use for work. I wonder if they make Eva skins for Panasonic cameras as well...

They should have done a Unit-02 car instead and put the 'best pilot for Eva' in it. Because then it would go, y'know...

And the team wears plugsuit uniforms to boot. What will they do next? On second thought, maybe I don't want to know.
