I’ve been going through more of the photos I took on some of my earlier trips to Japan, and there’s some fairly interesting stuff in there, like this little incident that happened at the first D1GP round I ever attended, at Ebisu Circuit in 2004.
Miki Ryuji, while trying to match Hibino’s ridiculous late-corner entry speed (Youtube video) ran a bit too wide and collided with the dirt wall.
The Silvia made a really loud thump as it hit. It wasn’t the usual “crushing an aluminium can” sound of a car crash.
Orido was the first person on the scene, after jumping down a couple of meters from the judging stand.
Someone in Norway bought this car, didn’t they?
Kazama, Maeda, Kumakubo, Miki, Smokey, Tsuchiya, Tanaka and Hiraoka.
There’s pretty much a zero percent chance of ever seeing all of these people in the same photo again.
I’ll probably put up some more photos from that D1 round a bit later.Tags: Ebisu Circuit, Miki Ryuji, Nissan, S15, Silvia, Top Secret
