Saito crashed into Kawabata. They both were pretty messed up, Kawabata got it worse. Both are still around today 🙂 http://www.streetfire.net/video/high-speed-drift-crash-fuji-speedway-d1gp-2007_184112.htm Reply SparkyR-1 says: August 25, 2011 at 3:48 pm it was a complete accident. saito washed out and under steered straight into kawabata. saito was ok however kawabata only suffered from whiplash. it happened after 2 sudden deaths! their match was intense.

Reply Edo says: August 26, 2011 at 1:45 am Wow I didn’t realize you were so close to the action. That crash was terrible. It shows how well prepared D1GP cars are when it comes to safety however. Both drivers we’re relatively uninjured, that says a lot considering how horrific that crash was. If you watch the Option video, you can also see a photographer narrowly escape being injured as well. Reply TecD says: August 26, 2011 at 2:25 am gah ive seen this crash alot over the 3 years and still cant imagine being in that crash :/ Reply Absolution says: August 26, 2011 at 6:34 am If you guys need a quick explanation, on his follow lap against Kawabata, Saito clipped too much on the inside of the 300R corner and ended up straightening out at speed. His trajectory had him shoot into Kawabata and they ended up slamming into the wall at 100+mph. In any case, these two recovered well. Kawabata went on to win the 2007 championship while Saito succeeded him in the 2008 season, which when you think about it… is a little suspicious… Reply Leave a Reply to Edo Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
