Here’s one from back when Koguchi was campaigning a JZX100 Chaser in D1SL.
Right at the end of the qualifying and practice day at Sugo Speedway, he managed to break the left rear suspension on the second corner. Since it was close to the end of the day, there was no time to send out a recovery truck, so he just parked it on the grass, hopped the fence and walked back to the pits!

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!
