THE DRIVER’S DOOR IS STILL OK: Big crash at Honjo CircuitSeptember 16, 2009 1:42 am
My friend Yoshio wiped out fairly heavily at Honjo Circuit today.
He was practicing ippatsu entries (where there’s only one quick feint motion instead of a big swing) at the top of third gear when he overthrew it a bit and went flying into the dirt wall on the side of the track. Luckily, he wasn’t hurt at all.
Luckily, radiator support looks fairly straight and the engine looks like it hasn’t moved much, so all the essential parts should still be OK. Yoshio has already found another old S14 zenki to swap all his parts into, so it shouldn’t be too long until he’s back out on the track again.Tags: Honjo Circuit, S14, Silvia, Yoshio Takahashi

Hope he’s ok.
How’d you go at D1SL?
Alexi – This is the guy I rode with at Ebisu, right? Glad to hear he’s ok.
Yeah, he’s fine.
D1 was good and bad. I’ll be doing a post about that soon.
Yeah, that’s him.
That’s why I tell people, the moment you take your car onto the track, consider it totaled. It will save you some tears later.
But damn, that impressive. Nearly every body panel is munged.
ippatsu same thing as rally quick?
Give him my regards! Hope he is up and running asap!
oh wow, glad he’s fine.
ouch looks like the only thing salvageable is the engine :s and the driver 😛
why is everyone crashing before i visit??? wtf
What corner was hitting? Was it the one off the long straight?
Honjo is generally a very safe track and free from big crashes.
whoa! thats pretty intense!
wow, I dont think i could bust up a car harder and walk away if i tried.
so sad, say hi for me alexi, and good to hear he’s ok. 😛 also let him know wagon drift footage is not too far away as well…..
Ouch! glad he’s ok, that thing’s proper mullered!

Good to know he’s ok though, so that’s both of them now… That might put off any plans to visit Australia for a while?
