There is a picture on the ESPN.com photo archives from Japan with a roller coaster in it.
It is in the October 10th gallery.

It looks like a Vekoma SLC.

That would be the SLC at the Suzuka F1 Circuit. You can look up the name on RCDB. It is at the same park as Mad Cobra. That picture is there because it was taken at the final race of the F1 Series for the year. I think the Ferrari belongs to Rubens Barichello.

The Ferrari definitely belongs to Rubens Barichello. I've also asked the hubby when we can hit the F1 circuit so I can ride the nearby coasters. He looked at me like I was crazy.
I'd rather die living than live like I'm dead

It's called Blackout, and I should know. I took those lame pictures. ;) BTW, it's also the most amazing SLC I have ridden. Very smooth. Still pushes and pulls, but a nice ride.
The end of an era has come. Ethyl is no more.
