Here’s a pic of Tezuka’s Bee-R Skyline from back in 2006. I think this was right at the end of the first practice day.
It still looked so fresh! These days, it’s amazingly haggard up close, but it gets the job done.
The Bee-R mechanics had the rev-limiter set on full shotgun mode that day, and thanks to the bowl shape of the valley that Sugo Speedway’s first corner is in, you could always tell when Tezuka was out on the track. Kablam!
