A Gallery of Memories - Part 20

The Gallery of Memories makes an early return in 2019 with the weekend from the 2019 Japanese GP! It was my first time to Japan and I was really excited to be at the legendary Circuit of Suzuka! The weekend was shortened to a Friday and Sunday due to the Typhoon Hagibis hitting the central part of Japan, Suzuka one of the places affected.
