Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Video: Trueno and Levin N2 cup in 1985

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…

    Tsuchiya did not compete in the original N2 series despite winning the 1984 Fuji Freshman Cup with the Carrot AE86 Trueno and also taking Class-3 honors in Group A in 1985 JTCC with the Advan AE86 Levin. In 1986 he continued to race in Group A, but later switched to FWD AE82 FX-GT. From 1987 he raced Honda EF Civic, 1988 BMW E30 M3, 1989-90 Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500, 1991-93 Nissan Skyline GT-R BNR32.
