Posting music videos with a collection of photos on Youtube is a common thing in Japan, especially regarding car meetings. This video is no exception to that, so sit back, relax and enjoy three minutes of 60s Japanese music and some Showa J-tin! Read the rest of this entry →
I’ve been watching Youtube user Rocketpencil for some time now. He is already quite known for uploading old racing footage from the 80s and 90s!
He just uploaded one of the best videos so far: a 15 lap Corolla Levin/Sprinter Trueno N2 cup race on Fuji International Speedway in 1985!
This second round of the Corolla/Sprinter cup does not show Keiichi Tsuchya and I have no idea if he actually drove this cup. I do know he drove the AE86 in the All Japan Touring Car championship, so there is a big possibility that he actually drove this race as well. At least he doesn’t show up in the top 5…
This video of a (very) young Manabu Orido just got posted on Youtube. In the video you can see him do a really bad run (offroading would be better term for it) but his second run is almost flawless.
Okay, compare that to todays standards and this really feels like watching D1GP in slowmotion! But think about it: I did post a video with the first victory of Manabu Orido before and there you can see he is actually already twice as fast as the competition!
